Brisbane Property Market Update
The property market within Brisbane first quarter 2023 has experienced a notable shift, with average property prices declining by 1.1% due to higher interest rates. This decrease in property prices is a result of higher borrowing costs, which reduces demand for properties.
The subsequent effect on the rental market would be significant, with low vacancy rates currently meaning that there will be much stronger competition for rental properties in certain suburbs of Brisbane, inherently driving up rental prices as a result.
When looking at the sale of Brisbane homes, a shortage of high-quality properties for sale currently in alignment with an excess of buyers could see these properties increase in value despite the rising interest rates due to their sheer high demand.
However, the arrival of the Olympic Games in Brisbane over the next decade is set to bring positive changes to the real estate market. The increased tourism is anticipated to bring in more domestic and international investment, boosting the property market. Furthermore, there will be a high demand for rental properties in the inner and middle ring suburbs due to their attractive location and amenities.
The Olympic Games will also bring new infrastructure and developments to Brisbane, which will have long-lasting positive effects on the real estate market. These new projects, such as roads and transportation systems, will make the city more desirable for residents and investors, contributing to rising demand for properties.
The inner and middle ring suburbs will see the greatest benefits from this increased demand for properties, due to their prime location and wide range of amenities. This presents a good opportunity for property owners and investors, as property prices in these areas are likely to rise.
