It wasn’t that long ago that the media was forecasting doom and gloom for property sales and that Australia’s housing markets could fall up to 30%. Despite these predictions, the outlook for Australia’s property markets are set for a much softer impact than projected.
Although the economy has taken a beating, the NAB Brisbane Housing Market Update for July indicates that price falls will likely be modest, and much smaller than predicted at the height of the COVID-19-related shutdowns.
In fact, so far the property markets have remained resilient, recording mild value declines. Brisbane saw only 0.4% decline May to June 2020. A variety of factors have helped to protect home values from more significant declines, including persistently low advertised stock levels and significant government stimulus. Additionally, low interest rates and forbearance policies from lenders have helped to keep urgent sales off the market, providing further insulation to housing values.
Watch the latest Housing Market Update for Brisbane. The housing and economic data is derived from the CoreLogic Hedonic Home Value Index for the month of June, released in July 2020.
Despite such uncertain times Clark Real Estate has recorded strong sales in May, June, and July for our clients.
