Still rising: The QLD regions where prices are still going up

Articles in the Courier Mail, based on research by PropTrack, highlight the robust house and land market in Queensland, with Brisbane’s average price approaching Melbourne’s figures. PropTrack recently reported that Brisbane home valuesrose by another 0.17% in January, reaching a new peak of $794,000, just $5000 less than Melbourne. Prices in 11 Queensland housing markets are still ascending or at their peak, as demand for property continues to outstrip supply in the Sunshine State.

The Reason? Low vacancy rates, high buyer and renter demand, and damage to properties resulting from recent natural disasters have combined to create a perfect storm of pressure on the Queensland property market, according to the latest Herron Todd White (HTW) Month-in-Review report. No QLD housing or unit markets were considered to be “declining markets.”

Incredibly, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast are still at the “start of recovery” after the short-lived downturn in 2022 and monthly price rises since then, according to the report. Home values in the River City are now 57.8% higher than they were at the start of the pandemic in early 2020, according to PropTrack. No housing or unit markets were considered to be “declining markets.”

Our population is booming with a swathe of interstate arrivals coming to resettle here. Queensland already enjoys disproportionate rates of population growth compared to other states and territories, but throw in the record numbers of overseas immigrants and returning expats coming to Australia, and you can see that things won’t slow down.

It’s a similar story on the Sunshine Coast, where supply and affordability will be the big issues going forward. “Sunshine Coast properties were cheaper than our southern capital city cousins of Sydney and Melbourne… and by some way,” HTW Sunshine Coast director Stuart Greensill said. “This is no longer the case as we run near price parity with Melbourne, and the gap has narrowed to Sydney.”
