We’re a few days into the new year and what a year 2018 was! The residential property market has dominated mainstream media, with major markets softening, and economically, we’ve had a mixed run.

In the year ending March 31st, 2018 Victoria had the largest population growth of 2.2%, followed by the ACT at 2.1%. Click to view the state by state breakdown. 

MOVE over Sydney and Melbourne — astonishingly, Canberra has knocked our biggest cities off their perch and been named the best Australian city for travel in 2018, while surging into a list of the top 10 cities in the world.

The ABS released the latest population data figures for the 12-months (March ’16 - March ’17). Population growth is one of many drivers of property prices.

Geocon, a Canberra based developer has purchased the West Block buildings in the Parliamentary Triangle with plans to turn the historic building in the Australia's most famous luxury hotel.

The increase in tourist numbers are great for the economy, which of course has a flow on effect to job creation, employment, and housing.

That price growth in Canberra has been steadily accelerating since 2013, but still failed to reach the eight capital city average of 10.2 per cent for June, driven largely by the country's two largest markets, Sydney and Melbourne, which grew by 14.4 per cent and 13.4 per cent respectively.

Given the market in Canberra has been strong of recent times, housing affordability indicators have shown signs of improvement. A good sign, that illustrates household incomes have remained strong and in line with house price increases. This will provide the market with significant fuel to continue its strong growth without any burdens of housing affordability to slow it.

The Canberra housing market continues to provide robust results for sellers with no sign of the usual mid-winter slowdown in activity.

The current economic climate provides the city with steady long-term fundamentals with leading economic indicators pointing to firm improvements.  is item about? What makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention...
