Perth real estate finally set for price growth in 2020: SQM Research

Most of Australia’s capital cities will benefit from the interest rate cuts and loosening of credit restrictions, even Perth which has been in a long term slump, according to Christopher’s Housing Boom and Bust Report for 2020, released today by SQM Research.

In every scenario barring the worst case, Scenario 4, a doomsday scenario, Perth is expected to see price growth.

As a result of the improved international outlook and an existing recovering in mining investment, the city of Perth will finally record price rises next year after a prolonged housing downturn. The forecast is for Perth dwelling prices to rise between 3% to 6%.

In the base case forecasts, what SQM view as the most likely scenario, there are no changes in interest rates and no intervention by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).

Louis Christopher, when referencing a long term perspective, "better value can definitely found in other markets that aren't Sydney and Melbourne such as Perth and Brisbane."

SQM Research also anticipates an ongoing recovery in the Brisbane and Perth rental markets in 2020, he noted.

Sydney and Melbourne look set for the largest recovery, with Hobart and Canberra next up, followed by Perth and Brisbane while Adelaide and Darwin look set for minimal growth, or a loss.
