House price growth in Canberra was minimal in 2017/18 and 2018/19, impacted by record unit supply.

But the Federal election in May 2019 and first home buyer incentives in New South Wales may have drawn demand into adjoining regions, according to a new report. 

BIS Oxford Economics Residential Property Prospects 2019 to 2022 report said the introduction of first home buyer stamp duty exemptions in the ACT from July 1 2019, as well as post-election stability, is expected to help demand in 2019/20.

The firm said that some price growth is forecast to return.

The median house and unit prices are each forecast to rise by 10% in the three years to June 2022, although unit price rises will be weighted toward the end of the forecast period as the current supply pipeline is worked through.
