BIS Shrapnel  has released Residential Property Prospects: 2013-2016, a report that provides a comprehensive analysis of the capital city residential markets, along with forecasts over a three-year horizon.

BIS Shrapnel’s flagship residential market report undertakes a comprehensive analysis of all the fundamental drivers, explaining them in detail along with the implications for the residential markets.

These drivers include:

  • Economic outlook and business conditions

  • Government policies/incentives affecting the market
  • Net interstate and overseas migration, population growth
  • Underlying demand and dwelling construction
  • Stock deficiencies or oversupply in each market

The information is then drawn together to provide an outlook for each of the capital city residential markets, as well as median house price forecasts for each as an indicator of the market cycle and residential price growth. Median house price forecasts are also included for the regional areas of Newcastle, Wollongong, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Cairns, with annual forecasts for all provided through to 2016.
