What Is happening In The Current Brisbane Housing Market?
Brisbane is experiencing the fastest sales growth right now.
Over the past 12 months, Brisbane property values have increased by 29.5%. This is equivalent to a median house value increase of $533 per day for the past year. With a total rise of nearly $202,000, the median home value in Brisbane is now $831,346. The median home value in Brisbane has grown at the fastest rate in 18 years.
Additionally, the average price of a unit has reached a record high at $437,034. That is the highest growth we've seen in 14 years, and represents a 9.3% annual increase.
Compared with last year, the number of owner-occupied first home buyer home loans has decreased; however, investments have increased, as investors see potential growth and favourable rental returns.
As a result of the recent floods, the market saw a brief "pause" at the beginning of March. In the first two weeks of March, auction clearance rates dropped to 42% and 53%. But by the final weekend of March, they were back up to 64%.
However, housing demand remains significantly higher than housing supply despite recent floods and interest rate increases.
With 65% clearance rates, the auction clearance rates for the March quarter were no more than 2% short of their record high from December quarter 2021.
