Casino Research Factsheet 1st Half of 2019

The median house price in Casino for Q4 2018 was $315,000 and the median unit price was $317,000. It is quite unusual for a median unit price to sit above a median house price; in this case it is attributed to just 5 unit sales in Q4 2018. These median prices represent annual (Q4 2017 – Q4 2018) price growth of 16.7% and 73.9% respectively. The Casino 2nd Half 2018 Research Factsheet reported annual (Q2 2017 – Q2 2018) price growth of 32.0% (house) and 15.0% (unit). by comparison, houses in Casino have become more affordable, while units have become more expensive.

Glenorchy Research Factsheet 1st Half of 2019

Q4 2018 saw Glenorchy record a median house price of $393,500, and a median unit price of $237,500. This represents an annual (Q4 2017 – Q4 2018) price change of 6.4% and -13.9% for houses and units respectively. By comparison, the 2nd Half 2018 Glenorchy Property Factsheet reported an annual (Q2 2017 – Q2 2018) price growth of 22.6% for houses and of 3.7% for units. Property in Glenorchy has thus become comparatively more affordable, with houses seeing a more sustainable level of growth and units seeing some cooling in median price. That said, this sudden shift in median unit price is in part reflective of a small sales pool, which can naturally result in larger price movements.
