Queensland Market Monitor - National Property Buyers

  1. 1. your state-wide property research guide suburb by suburb REIQ QMM STATE-WIDE COMMENTARY ISSUE21 QUEENSLANDMARKETMONITORISSUE21 DECEMBER QTR 2013 >p2 Giving real estate professionals the competitive edge Visit rpdata.com or phone 1300 734 318 to find out how. Proudly supported by QUEENSLAND HOUSE SALES PEAK SALES MARKET The numbers of house sales across Queensland peaked at the end of last year as well as recorded healthy price growth according to the REIQ’s Queensland Market Monitor (QMM) for the December quarter. December quarter data shows that the volume of house sales hit its annual peak of activity in the last three months of 2013. The numbers of sales was also one of the healthiest quarterly periods for a number of years. Not only can the December quarter claim to be the third strongest in as many years, it was also firming without the aid of extraneous stimulus measures. Queensland’s most recent peak was in September 2012 when the return of stamp duty concessions underpinned the increased sales activity.
  2. 2. 2 QUEENSLAND MARKET MONITOR However, the strength of this latest quarter is a direct reflection of the improving market and growing confidence levels. The September quarter, or spring selling season, historically records the high numbers of sales. Last year, however, the December quarter trumped it with the preliminary numbers of house sales peaking at just shy of 10,000 for that three-month period. This was the case across most major regions of the State which is a further signal that the Queensland market is well into its next growth phase. And when we compare 2013 to the very good times of 2007, we are sitting at about 75 per cent of the sales volumes that occurred during that year. Not only are more properties selling, they are taking less time to do so and with less discounting. The most recent data shows that in Brisbane, for example, the average time it takes to sell a home has reduced to 74 days with average discounting from list prices sitting at about 6 per cent. And REIQ accredited agencies are reporting that many properties are now selling for their asking prices or above with instances of multiple offers also increasing. Just as the volume of sales is growing so too are median house prices in most regions. Over the December quarter, the Brisbane median house price increased 6 per cent to $562,000 – the third best performer over the quarter. There was a significant jump in sales between $500,000 and $1 million over the period which can partly explain this quarterly price increase.

The Greater Brisbane region is attractive for first home buyers and investors given its relative affordability and also it has the lion’s share of new housing developments across the Brisbane area. The next best performer was Toowoomba which again posted median price growth over the quarter. Its median house price increased 6.5 per cent to $329,000. Over the year ending December, its median grew by an impressive 8.5 per cent. Toowoomba’s proximity to the Surat Basin Energy Province continues to underpin its strong property market and potential for future growth. The median price of units and townhouses across South East Queensland grew over the December quarter as well. The preliminary numbers of unit sales also increased six per cent over the year. The unit market is continuing to improve in-line with the house sales market – albeit centred around the southeast corner. A key difference between the Queensland house and unit markets is that predominantly the lion’s share of these types of properties is located in the southeast as that is where demand for housing is the greatest. In fact, demand for units in Brisbane has resulted in record numbers of off-the-plan sales lately. According to recently-released research, more than 1,000 new apartment sales were transacted in the December quarter – the highest level since 2002. 3 STATE-WIDE SUMMARY DECEMBER QUARTER 2013 MEDIAN SALE PRICES LGA HOUSES UNITS LAND SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND BRISBANE (SD) $465,000 $385,000 $215,000 BRISBANE CITY $562,000 $408,000 $334,500 IPSWICH CITY $308,000 $219,000 $172,450 LOGAN CITY $345,000 $240,000 $158,900 MORETON BAY $387,750 $299,000 $229,000 REDLAND CITY $455,500 $351,000 $30,000 GOLD COAST CITY (LGA) $480,000 $340,000 $230,000 SUNSHINE COAST (LGA) $456,000 $340,000 $244,000 MAJOR REGIONS TOOWOOMBA $329,000 $263,000 $155,000 FRASER COAST $291,500 $220,000 $158,500 BUNDABERG $280,000 $243,500 $122,000 GLADSTONE $420,000 N/A $208,000 ROCKHAMPTON $320,000 $279,500 $179,900 MACKAY $410,000 $276,750 $225,000 TOWNSVILLE CITY $357,000 $280,000 $160,750 CAIRNS $355,000 $183,500 $170,000 PRELIMINARY SALES ACTIVITY LGA HOUSES UNITS LAND SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND BRISBANE (SD) UP DOWN DOWN BRISBANE CITY UP DOWN DOWN IPSWICH CITY UP STEADY DOWN LOGAN CITY STEADY DOWN STEADY MORETON BAY STEADY DOWN DOWN REDLAND CITY UP STEADY DOWN GOLD COAST CITY UP STEADY UP SUNSHINE COAST UP UP DOWN MAJOR REGIONS TOOWOOMBA UP STEADY DOWN FRASER COAST DOWN DOWN STEADY BUNDABERG STEADY STEADY DOWN GLADSTONE UP DOWN DOWN ROCKHAMPTON STEADY STEADY STEADY MACKAY UP DOWN DOWN TOWNSVILLE CITY UP UP DOWN CAIRNS STEADY DOWN UP

Data report date: 6 February 2014 Published date: 3 March 2014 RENTAL MARKET The REIQ’s latest residential rental survey, carried out in December across all REIQ accredited agencies, has found that the majority of the State recorded higher vacancy rates compared to the three months before. Over a third of REIQ member agencies reported an increase in investor activity, subsequently adding to the rental pool. In addition to this, the end of the year is historically a period of lower tenant demand with many vacating over the Christmas and New Year periods, usually in a move to another area for either work or educational reasons. While local agents report seeing the beginning of easing asking rents, figures from the Residential Tenancies Authorities figures for the December quarter, are yet to show a decline in median weekly rents for South East Queensland and the Central Coast. While in the mining regions, where vacancy rates have been trending upwards for a number of consecutive quarters now, falling median weekly rents are becoming the norm.

  5. 5. REIQ RESEARCH EXPLANATORY NOTES SALES DATA All figures for the most recent quarterly and yearly periods are to be considered preliminary and subject to further revision as additional sales records become available (see Research Methodology). All sales data includes "Recent Sales" as advised by real estate agents as well as official records as advised by DNRM. A median sale price is derived by arranging a set of sale prices from lowest to highest and then selecting the middle value within this set (representing the 50th percentile, where half of recorded sales were less and half were higher than the median). Only suburbs and regions to record sufficient sales numbers are published. N/A Due to insufficient sales numbers (as at the time of data extraction) no median sale price has been calculated (LGA) Local Government Area Brisbane (SD) Brisbane Statistical Division which comprises the LGA’s of Brisbane City, Ipswich City, Logan City, Moreton Bay Regional and Redland City ^ Indicates acreage sales only (with land size greater than 2400m2 ). All other data is based upon sales with a land size of less than 2400 m2 ~ Median price changes influenced by varying quality of stock sold * Median price changes influenced by varying quantities of new properties sold f Median price changes influenced by varying quantities of waterfront properties sold t Medians affected by varying quantities of townhouses sold G Sales volumes and median affected by QLD government sales in the area eg ULDA, NRAS sales. y Median affected by high yielding property sales 1 Median price changes influenced by the varying volumes of sales between the Mainland and Bay Islands areas PRICE POINT GRAPHS All data contained within these graphs represent preliminary sales numbers available as at five weeks after the end of each quarterly period and are subject to revision as additional sales records become available. The data excludes any recent sales transactions where the contract sale price was not disclosed. The intention of these graphs is to gauge trends in sales activity between periods in lieu of actual final sales results (see Research Methodology).

RENTAL DATA All median weekly rents are published on a postcode basis, as calculated by the Residential Tenancies Authority, where sufficient data is available. Caution should be exercised when interpreting any median rental price data based upon a relatively small number of new bond lodgements. L Listed localities (or suburbs) represent one of potentially several that fall within that postcode. N.A. Due to insufficient new bond lodgements, no median rental price has been calculated Source: Residential Tenancies Authority, Rental Bond lodgements (www.rta.qld.gov.au) GROSS RENTAL YIELDS House yields are based upon REIQ median house prices and RTA weighted median weekly rent for houses. Unit yields are based upon REIQ median unit & townhouse prices and RTA weighted median weekly rent for units and townhouses. VACANCY RATES All figures are based upon all residential rentals as at the end of each quarterly period, as submitted by REIQ accredited agents. A vacancy rate of 3 per cent is generally considered to indicate equilibrium of supply and demand within a rental market. N/A Due to insufficient information received no vacancy rate has been calculated Source: REIQ Residential Rental Survey 5DECEMBER QUARTER 2013 ON THE MARKET INDICATORS At the time of publication, latest information available was for the 12 months to the end of November 2013. "Average Vendor Discount" is the average difference between the contract price on a property and the first advertised price. The figure is expressed as a percentage and is an average of all private treaty sales which sold for less than their initial asking price during the last 12 months. Auction listings and listings without an advertised asking price are excluded from the calculation. "Average Days on Market" is calculated as the average number of days it has taken to sell those properties sold by private treaty sale during the 12 month period. The calculation excludes auction listings and listings where an asking price is not advertised. The days on market calculation uses the contract date on the property compared with the first advertised date. "Total Listings" is the total unique number of properties that have been advertised for sale and captured by RP Data over the 12 month period. To be included in the count, the listings have to be matched to an actual address. Source: RP Data (www.rpdata.com.au)

Contributing to this healthy increase in its median was a shift in the composition of sales over the quarter. Compared to the September quarter, house sales numbers in the $500,000 to $1 million price point were up about 20 per cent, while sales activity in the $1 million-plus price point was up about 15 per cent. Recovery in prestige property sales numbers is typically an indicator that confidence is returning to the property market. The top three suburbs to record the most property sales in excess of $1 million over the December quarter included Paddington, New Farm and Indooroopilly, all city fringe suburbs. Further evidence of increased activity at the top end was the higher number of Brisbane suburbs to record an increase in excess of 15 per cent in its median house price over the quarter. Of the 15 suburbs to record an increase, the majority had a median over $650,000. Other market indicators signalling continued improving confidence is the time properties are spending on the market and the amount which vendors are negotiating. The most recent figures show that in Brisbane, the average time it takes to sell a house has reduced to 74 days, down from 87 a year ago with average discounting from list prices sitting at about 6 per cent compared to 7 per cent over the same period. In the unit and townhouse market, average days on market has also improved to 85, down from 96, while average vendor discounting is just 5 per cent. The Brisbane unit and townhouse price increased 2 per cent over the quarter to $408,000 and posted 1.5 per cent growth over the year. There was a jump in sales in the prestige unit market with sales between $500,000 and $1 million increasing by 13 per cent over the period. Demand for these top-end properties are reflected in the spike in median price in suburbs such as Hamilton and Kangaroo Point which have been impacted by the sale of higher priced units, many with river-views. The Brisbane CBD also recorded one of the highest increases in sales activity, nudging back up over 100 preliminary sales numbers for the quarter, as well as posting a steady 2.2 per cent increase in its median. RENTAL MARKET In the Brisbane City local government area, the vacancy rate as at the end of December was 3.2 per cent, up from 2.3 per cent at the end of September. Local agents report higher than usual vacancies for this time of year as tenants are either relocating for work or purchasing their own property. Across Brisbane the results are varied. Inner Brisbane, suburbs within 5km of the CBD, recorded the highest increase, up 1.7 percentage points to 4.1 per cent. For Brisbane suburbs beyond 5km, the vacancy rate eased just 0.6 percentage points to 2.8 per cent. Over the December quarter, median weekly rents remained relatively steady for two bedroom units and three bedroom townhouses, while three bedroom houses recorded an increase of $10 to $410 per week compared to the previous quarter. 6 QUEENSLAND MARKET MONITOR BRISBANE MARKET UPDATES

  11. 11. GREATER BRISBANE 11DECEMBER QUARTER 2013 BRISBANE MARKET UPDATES SALES MARKET All four of Brisbane’s surrounding council areas posted median house price over the December quarter while also recording greater numbers of sales compared to the previous quarter. The top major region across Queensland over the period was Moreton Bay which posted median house price growth of 7.7 per cent to $387,750. The region is attractive for first home buyers and investors given its relative affordability and also has the lion’s share of new housing developments across the Brisbane area. Its numbers of preliminary house sales also increased by 8 per cent over the year. The Ipswich City council area recorded median house price growth of 4.4 per cent to $308,000 over the quarter. Its preliminary numbers of house sales was also up by 4 per cent compared to the historically more voluminous September quarter. Redland City posted a median house price increase of 3.5 per cent to $455,500 and 8 per cent more preliminary house sales over the quarter. Logan City recorded house growth of 3 per cent to $345,000 with preliminary house sales up more than 10 per cent over the year. Of all four major regions, Redland City now has the lowest days on market at 84 – down from 99 a year before. In Logan and Moreton Bay, the average discounting is now 6 per cent while in Redland City and Ipswich it is 7 per cent. When it comes to the unit and townhouse market, it was a mixed bag for the Greater Brisbane region but this is probably due to the size of the unit markets in each area. Logan’s median unit and townhouse price increased 5.7 per cent to $240,000 over the quarter but this was positively impacted by two new developments – one in Beenleigh and one in Browns Plains – which were sold over the period. Moreton Bay has the largest unit market in Greater Brisbane and recorded 184 preliminary sales over the December quarter. Its median and unit price posted a minimal reduction of 0.3 per cent to $299,000 over the period. Redland City’s median unit price grew by 3.4 per cent to $351,000 over the quarter but this was based on less than 70 preliminary sales. The smallest unit market is in Ipswich, which posted just 50 preliminary sales and recorded a median unit price fall of 7.8 per cent to $219,000 over the period due to the varying quality of stock sold. RENTAL MARKET For the surrounding Brisbane local government areas, rental markets still remain tight despite a slight easing in vacancy rates. All areas recorded vacancy rates under 2.5 per cent, with Redland City the only area to record an increase of more than one percentage points in its vacancy rate. Across the Greater Brisbane area, around 40 per cent of REIQ agents surveyed reported an increase in investor activity; however tenant demand remains strong in most areas, keeping vacancy rates at low levels. The increased investor activity was most notable in the Moreton Bay area. Median weekly rents across the Greater Brisbane area saw small increases for two bedroom units and three bedroom houses, with all regions posting increases of either $5 or $10 since September. Ipswich City continues to post the most affordable median weekly rents across all rental property types.

  16. 16. 16 QUEENSLAND MARKET MONITOR REGIONAL MARKET UPDATES A solid performer in terms of price growth and sales activity was Robina which recorded a median house price increase of 10.1 per cent to $545,000 over the quarter. It also posted an increase in sales over the quarter and the year. Another strong performer was Palm Beach which recorded median price growth of 12.5 per cent to $540,000 over the quarter as well 10 per cent over the year. The median unit and townhouse price on the Gold Coast increased 1.5 per cent to $340,000 over the quarter and was steady over the year. While the Gold Coast’s preliminary number of unit sales reduced over the quarter, over the year volumes increased by 21 per cent. Local agents say the unit market has not bounced back to the same degree as the house market as yet but it is expected to follow its lead in the months ahead. A solid performer over the quarter was Currumbin Waters which posted median unit price growth of 10.1 per cent to $315,000. Over the year ending December, its median price increased by 7.3 per cent. RENTAL MARKET In our tourism centres, residential vacancy rates remain at healthy levels. The Gold Coasts recorded a tighter vacancy rate, down 0.4 percentage points to 1.9 per cent since September. Median weekly rents on the Gold Coast have been steadily increasing since the start of 2013, with three bedroom houses up $20 to $420 per week between December 2012 and December last year – the highest increase in over four years where median rents have hovered around the $400 mark. The median rent of a two-bedroom unit on the Gold Coast increased $15 per week to $355 over the same period. SALES MARKET The median house price on the Gold Coast increased 1.7 per cent to $480,000. The preliminary numbers of house sales increased 10 per cent compared to the September quarter. According to local REIQ accredited agencies, sales activity is strengthening however stock is becoming an issue. Well-priced properties are selling close to list price – especially in the under $500,000 price bracket. There is currently a lot of pent-up demand which is being released due to the improving conditions, low interest rates, and media commentary on the strengthening Gold Coast market. According to local agents, there are instances of more demand than supply which is helping price growth, while good stock is becoming increasingly difficult to source. First home buyers are more active in the market after a prolonged period on the sidelines. First-time buyers have worked out that it can be more affordable to buy than rent in some areas and they are making their move into the market. Local agents say the outlook for this year is extremely positive with the potential for continued moderate price growth as well as improvements in the region’s tourism and construction sectors. Sellers’ expectations are beginning to trend up with many now expecting to sell their properties at or above list price. Investors are more active in the market given the strength of the region’s rental market which is providing some good returns. GOLD COAST

  19. 19. 19 REGIONAL MARKET UPDATES DECEMBER QUARTER 2013 The approval of the 2nd range crossing is also said to be a boost for not only the local economy but also for local amenity as large trucks will no longer be driving through the city centre. RENTAL MARKET Investor activity is reportedly up, predominantly within close proximity to the Toowoomba metropolitan area, as is tenant demand with one agency reporting very high numbers of applicants recently. With increased demand being matched with increased investment activity, Toowoomba’s vacancy rate remained unchanged since September, at 1.3 per cent. Median weekly rents from the RTA correspondingly continue to record steady growth. Compared to the December quarter 2012, three bedroom townhouses recorded the highest increase, up $48 to $330 per week. Given the number of new bond lodgements are low, the higher median rent was no doubt influenced by the increasing number of higher quality townhouses available for rent. Meanwhile, three bedroom houses were up $10 to $290 per week and two bedroom flats were up $15 to $240 per week over the same period. Three bedroom flats still remain the most popular investment property with over 600 new bonds lodged over the December quarter 2013 SALES MARKET The Toowoomba property market continues to go from strength to strength, with the December quarter seeing preliminary sales volumes increase by around 10 per cent. The Toowoomba Regional median house price was up a strong 6.5 per cent to $329,000. According to local agents, the Toowoomba property market has continued to show robust confidence levels. Sales in the sub-$500,000 bracket are reportedly strong, with some properties taking less than a week to sell. Local agents say both owner-occupiers and investors are very active in the market, with increasing numbers at open for inspections. First home buyers however are unfortunately still low in numbers due to minimal affordably-priced properties available on the market. Investor demand is said to be particularly strong for properties that are priced well relative to their rental return, with such properties spending little time on the market. Another indicator that the Toowoomba property market is strengthening is increased sales activity in the premium end of the market, with up-graders and owner-occupiers making the step up into a higher price range. In the unit and townhouse market, the Toowoomba median sale price increased 6.5 per cent to $263,000 with an increase in preliminary sales numbers also recorded over the quarter. The Toowoomba unit market is seeing small townhouse developments pop up across the metropolitan area, such as Newtown and Kearneys Spring. While higher- end sales in East Toowoomba and Rangeville have also contributed to the increase in the region’s median price over the quarter. Over the coming year, local agents expect to see continued quiet confidence, with confident capital growth expected. Local agents say the region is set to vastly benefit from the opening of the Brisbane West Wellcamp in October, which is a privately owned and funded airport. The airport is to have the fourth largest landing strip in Australia which will open up Toowoomba to domestic flights and have the potential to see the region become a residential hub for fly-in-fly-out workers.
