November 2016 Market Update

November 2016 Market Update

Posted on December 1, 2016 by Mirren Property Investment

Our Finance Partner, Smartline Bella Vista, recently sent us the November 2016 Housing Market Update across the Capital Cities.

In this report, CoreLogic Research Director Tim Lawless presents for Smartline this latest Housing and Economic Data.

Here are some of the key statistics:

  • CoreLogic Home Value Index has shown for the month of October 2016 that the combined capital city home values rose by 0.5%.
  • Adelaide and Hobart were the only cities which fell in value during the month of October.
  • The annual rate of growth is trending higher and is rising at its fastest pace since June 2016.
  • The average selling time has dropped from 50 days to 39 days in September and discounting rates have also fallen to the lowest since March 2015.
  • Sydney home values have increased by 2.9% over the three months to October, and are 13.5% higher over the first 10 months of the year.
  • Melbourne dwellings have increased by 4.6% over the three months to October and are 11.9% higher for the year.
  • Brisbane only rose 0.8% to be 1.3% higher over the three months to October, a moderate increase of 2.6% has been seen since the start of the year.

Cameron Kusher, CoreLogic Research Analyst states that:

  • “The growth trend in Sydney and Melbourne remains strong. Although the annual rate of value growth is slower than it was 12 months ago, the rate of growth is starting to escalate again.
  • Canberra’s housing market is seeing its rate of growth accelerate and Hobart has also seen a recent uplift and growth.
  • Brisbane and Adelaide are seeing slow and steady rates of growth while Perth and Darwin are recording values which are much lower than their peak. This shows that headline figures are being heavily influenced by Sydney and Melbourne but outside of those cities growth conditions are generally nowhere near as strong.”
