The misuse of price statistics represents a clear and present danger for real estate consumers trying to make choices about where to buy. The much-quoted adage about lies, damned lies and statistics applies very aptly to median prices for locations across Australia. While this data can be useful to buyers and sellers, if used intelligently, way too often it’s misused and abused in news media in ways that misinform and mislead consumers. One of the most common misuses of median price data occurs when media outlets publish lists of the locations which, allegedly, have had the biggest growth in...

I have often commented that every time politicians make changes that impact the cost of housing, they make it worse, never better.  And it’s happening again. Changes to the National Construction Code came into effect in Victoria and Queensland on the first of May.  And this is expected to add up to $40,000 to the cost of building a new home - through, among other things, the Code’s new energy efficiency standards. HIA Chief Economist Tim Reardon said this caused a spike in new home sales before the changes came into effect – and there will a slump in coming months –...

The Federal Government’s latest Budget will go down in history as the “band-aid budget”. Rather than fix fundamental problems and deal with core issues, the Federal Treasurer has thrown cash in various directions, in what looks very much like an election Budget. They haven’t provided solutions to any of the core problems in the housing industry, particularly the rental shortage. There are broken limbs everywhere in the industry - and in other parts of the national body - and the Federal Government has applied band-aids to a few of them. It’s the same in other areas. Rather than pull...

Carrot or The Stick? show art Carrot or The Stick?

In this podcast episode, we dive into the two different approaches that state governments in Australia are taking to address the issue of rental shortage in the housing market. On one hand, Western Australia (WA) has adopted the carrot approach, offering incentives and encouragement to investors to increase the supply of rental properties. On the other hand, Victoria has decided to take the stick approach, punishing investors with new and higher taxes if they do not comply with the government's desires. The WA government has implemented several measures to encourage investors to bring new...

The latest price data from two of the biggest sources of real estate information shows a resurgence in the regional areas, in competition with the capital cities. The background to this is that the combined regions have outperformed on capital growth since Covid, with regional areas generally out-performing the big cities in the past four years. But in the past 12 months, the tables have turned somewhat, with the cities overtaking the regions on growth in median prices, led by Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Now, we’ve seen another twist, with the latest statistics from both PropTrack and...
