  1. House Prices Over the Last 10 Years (Source: Michael Yardney)

    Over the last 10 years, property values in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth have experienced significant growth, with some cities doubling in value. Strategic property investors can outperform average growth rates, particularly by targeting investment-grade properties in high-demand areas. The current property market offers long-term investment opportunities due to factors such as population growth, job creation, and limited supply, making it a favorable time for investors with a focus on the future.

    The average house price in Brisbane has risen by $520,669 over 10 years. Or, in other words, Brisbane’s property values over 10 years have risen 96.8%.

The national median weekly asking rent for a dwelling is $721.00, with Sydney recording the highest at $1,054.16 per week and Adelaide offering the best rental affordability at $457.72 per week.
