Property Predictions for 2016


Perth house prices are likely to fall by three to five per cent this year as the mining dependent economy teeters on the verge of recession.

National Australia Bank (NAB) expects the residential property sector to remain weak in Western Australia as lower commodities prices force companies to shed staff and population growth slows.


Sydney’s property prices grew 16 per cent over 2015, but the market is expected to slump to just 4 per cent growth next year, new forecasts show. It’s expected to slow dramatically as investors continue their exodus from the market, according to Domain Group’s State of the Market Report.


The predicted median house price growth of 1.9% in 2016, before rising oversupply and slower economic activity halt price growth in 2017 and induce a 1.1% decline in 2017/18. Units are forecast to perform at a similarly dismal rate, with negative growth of 1% predicted by June 2018.



Domain’s new housing prospect report for 2016 reveals the market is expected to rise only slightly, with growth predicted to remain about 3 to 4 per cent.

While a solid 4 per cent growth in 2016 would be an improvement on this year’s expected 3 to 4 per cent, the  gains will likely come from Brisbane’s outer suburbs.


According to SQM’s Louis Christopher predicts Melbourne dwelling prices booming by 10–15%. Melbourne’s expected to outperform Sydney by some distance.

Australian property prices will rise next year at their slowest pace in three years and Melbourne will overtake Sydney as the best performing capital city market.

    I found Mark through Google!!!.
    Since my first meeting I felt so confident in Mark's ability and experience in being able to deliver a great result. I was very much impressed with Mark's service as he made the whole process easier and stress free!!!!

    I am really happy because I bought exactly what I was looking for and it was well under my top budget. Most importantly We did it within few weeks.

    Since day one Mark was very pro-active.

     Mark emailed multiple properties every week within my search parameters and wish list.
     Mark allowed me to be involved as much as I wished.
     Mark inspected the properties I liked.
     Mark explained the positives and negatives about each property.
     Mark held a pre-auction meeting and attended the auction
     Mark's strategies and suggestions like where he’ll stand during the auction, how he’ll handle the negotiation etc. etc. and through to the final shaking of hands inside the house all played out in a positive way.

    Thank you Mark for all your work in getting me the right house for the right price!

    I highly recommend Mark for everybody who wants to find a good place to live or invest.

    Many, many, many thanks!
