Melbourne at peak of unit market, Sydney remains in decline: HTW clock

Melbourne stays firmly perched at the peak of cycle for unit markets, while Sydney remains at the start of decline, according to property valuation firm Herron Todd White’s (HTW) recent report.

“This year will undoubtedly be seen as the one where the collective boomtown mentality of Sydney took a breather,” according to HTW’s Month in Review for December.

In Melbourne, it was a very good year for property with great fundamentals and many investors still confident there’s a way to go.

Ballarat, which had made it to the peak of the unit market cycle, slipped one notch to approaching the peak.

The peak of the market position is dominated by cities or regions from NSW, with Gold Coast and Melbourne the only outsiders.

As HTW put it: “2017 was the year some of our hottest markets decided it was time to take a breather.”

The bottom of market has new entrants in Darwin and South West WA, which join an already long list led by Adelaide. Darwin was approaching the bottom in November.

Meanwhile, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth remain at the declining market position.
