Unpacking multi-speed conditions in Australia’s housing markets

In today’s Pulse article, Head of Research Eliza Owen dives deep into the ‘multi-speed’ growth trends in Australian housing markets covering:

  1. Australia’s capital growth performance
    The range of annual growth across the capital cities stretches from a 22.0% rise in Perth dwelling values, to a -0.1% dip in Hobart.
  2. Diverging growth trends since the onset of the pandemic
    Across the capital city markets, Perth dwelling values have had the highest uplift in value at 62.6%, ranging to an 11.2% gain across Melbourne.
  1. Supply and demand influences on housing conditions
    Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane are the strongest-performing markets, due to having a low supply of listings relative to sales. The over-supply of the Melbourne market is especially prominent when comparing new listings (98,223) added to the market in the past 12 months compared with actual sales (84,452).
