Property Results Show Positive Market Growth

Understanding the dynamics of the market can be crucial for making informed decisions, whether you are a homeowner, investor, or simply interested in the local housing trends.

The residential real estate market in Victoria has experienced several notable developments in recent months. Here are some key insights and analysis to help you navigate the current landscape:

Market Overview

Overall, the residential market in Victoria remains robust, with sustained demand and steady price growth.

Despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic, the real estate sector has shown resilience, demonstrating its attractiveness to buyers and investors alike.

According to CoreLogic’s August research, there has been seven consecutive monthly rises in the national Home Value Index, showing the pace of growth in house prices rising in July by 0.7%.

Inventory Levels

One notable trend is the limited housing supply across the region. Inventory levels have remained relatively low, contributing to heightened competition among buyers.

The scarcity of available properties has put upward pressure on prices, resulting in multiple offers and shorter time on the market for well-priced homes.

Price Appreciation

Victoria has witnessed consistent price appreciation over the past year. Average home prices have steadily increased, though at a more sustainable pace.

Price growth has been driven by strong demand, limited supply, and a stable local economy. However, it's important to note that prices vary based on specific neighbourhoods and property types.

Shifts in Buyer Preferences

The pandemic has influenced buyer preferences, leading to an increased focus on larger homes with dedicated office spaces, outdoor areas and proximity to amenities.

Demand for suburban properties and those offering more space, such as single-family homes and also townhouses has increased.

Government Policies

Various government incentives continue to influence the residential market in Victoria including the updated First Home Guarantee Scheme and the First Homeowner Grant and tax incentives for investors.

It is essential to stay informed about any new policies or changes that may impact you as a buyer, whether you are a first homebuyer or investor.
