Hobart - Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 1st Half 2018

The city of Hobart’s median property prices increased by 10.6% for houses and 7.2% for units between 2016 to 2017/2018. At the same time, sales transactions increased by 30.7% (houses) and 54.0% (units), which signifies exceptional demand is driving the market rather than scarcity of stock. Current evidence signals that double digit price growth will further continue into 2018, resulting in Hobart being Australia’s top achieving capital city. The highest level of growth is anticipated later into 2018, which will level out to single digits over 2019/2020. With the current activity in Hobart’s property market, there is unlikely to be relief from rising prices. Those looking for more affordable options need to look at the northern area of Hobart.

Q1 2018 Key Market Indicators – Tasmania

Tasmania is leading the way in development approvals, with a 48.6% increase reported over the past 12 months to December 2017. This is equivalent to 266 dwelling approvals to the state in December 2017, which although pales in comparison to other states – for example Victoria (5,284 approvals), New South Wales (6,603 approvals), and Queensland (3,364 approvals) – this is quite a momentous achievement for Tasmania. The increase in dwelling approvals cater for the 176.9% growth in nett migration into Tasmania with 407 people as of June 2017. However, there is still an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that now is the perfect time for developers to set their sights to Tasmania.
