Foreign Buyers Retreating From All But One Housing Market – Which One?!

Property Club Property Market Insights

There has been a dramatic fall in foreign investment in Australia’s housing market, but the demand for one capital city property market remains steady.

The latest Foreign Investment Review Board report reveals the value of approvals for foreign investment in residential real estate nationally fell $17.5 billion over the 2017/18 financial year to $12.5 billion.

Queensland received 17 per cent of all residential real estate approvals last financial year, with an investment value of $1.4 billion — more than the ACT, Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and Tasmania combined.

China accounts for the majority of residential real estate approvals.

Carrie Law, chief executive of Chinese real estate website, said that while Chinese demand for residential real estate nationally had fallen, a recovery was on the way.

A recent report from found demand from Chinese buyers for the Brisbane housing market actually rose 35 per cent in the 12 months to May 2018.

So . . . with a lot of incoming demand for properties in the SEQ market, what do you think will continue to happen to the prices?!

It is worth revisiting the article I covered about this in December 2018:
