Weekly Market Update (17 Nov 2023)
  1. National Vacancy Rate (Source: SQM Research)

    The national rental vacancy rate in Australia has fallen to 1.0% in October, indicating a deepening rental crisis. Several cities, including Sydney, Brisbane, and Hobart, experienced a decrease in vacancy rates. Asking rents in capital cities have increased by 0.7% in the past 30 days and 15.5% over the past year. The national median weekly rent for combined dwellings is $598.22, with Sydney having the highest rent for houses at $1,012.57 a week. The managing director of SQM Research predicts that rental increases of 10-15% will continue, and suggests that immigration rates should be capped to alleviate the rental crisis.

    CoreLogic’s interactive Mapping the Market tool shows that 82.4% of house and unit suburbs in Australia saw an increase in property values in the past three months. Only 17.6% of suburbs experienced a decline in values. The housing market upswing is becoming more widespread, with four out of five markets recording a rise in values. Capital cities are performing differently, with Perth being the strongest market while Hobart and Darwin are either flat or experiencing a decline. Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth are seeing significant growth, while Sydney and Melbourne are growing at a slower pace. Hobart and Darwin have seen declines in some house markets. Regional markets also show diverse conditions, with Queensland and South Australia performing well.
