Q4 2018 Key Market Indicators

As 2018 closes, it is time to celebrate some wins, the most notable of all being positive consumer sentiment and growth in the number of first home buyer loans. The Australian consumer sentiment index recorded 104.3 points in November 2018, which is above the positive mark of 100 index points, and represents a 4.6% growth over the past 12 months. This suggests increasing confidence in the economy, which after a year of federal budgetary and politics changes, is a positive way to end the year. A more confident society will have a higher tendency to spend, which will have a positive multiplier effect on the economy as a whole, be it in the retail sector, hospitality, property, and others.

Melbourne - Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 1st Half 2018

The Melbourne City Local Government Area median house prices experienced a 1.3% growth and unit median prices grew by 7.9% from 2016 to 2017/2018*. The majority (79.5%) of suburbs in greater Melbourne experienced double digit price growth, whereas 16.8% experienced single digit growth and only 3.7% had negative growth. This points to the wide scale decline in affordability across greater Melbourne. Property buyers will be pleased by the existence of affordable options in the midst of continued price growth, across suburbs in the north-west for houses and south for units. At the same time, rental prices in the LGA have trended upwards for houses whilst remaining stable for units. Table 1. Melbourne’s top performing suburbs in the 1st half of 2018

It was a clean sweep for Victoria, taking out 4 gold awards nationally, 2 silver and 1 bronze in the PRDnationwide Q2 2018 Key Market Indicator Awards.
