crystal ball

Forget the crystal ball when it comes to predicting property in 2017… it’s as close as a sure thing when it comes to growth and return. 

Of course every year, we see different trends emerge and external factors that influence just how the Australian property market will perform, and this year is no different.

Take a look at my top property predictions for 2017:

Interest rates will stay at rock bottom levels

It’s unlikely that we’ll see any change to rates… in fact a 0.25 per cent drop mid year is on the cards. It’s like a never ending honeymoon for investors with these record busting interest rates.

The good times will roll on with growth and high demand 

All the signs are pointed toward a continuation of growth and demand. Property experts SQM Research are predicting a national price growth of 8 – 12 per cent indicating that the positive market is showing no signs of slowing down. At the same time, demand for housing will continue to skyrocket in the highly sought after capitals of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The global political environment is a whole new world

The only certainty politically is that things are set to change with the aftermath of Brexit and a new President of the United States determined to tread an unpredictable path. Will these thing trickle down to our local economy? Yes, but it’s unlikely any negative impact will upset the very solid property market in Australia.

Demand from China will continue to surge

There is no chance of demand from China slowing down…the impact of the rising wealth of the middle class in  this massive population is impossible to ignore, and it’s a game changer for demand in Australian property.

So there you have it…the year ahead is looking better than ever for investing. What’s the upshot of this…what does this mean for you? It’s pretty obvious isn’t it…the time to snap up an investment property in a prime location is NOW!
