Housing industry report puts 'boom' talk in context

The head of a Queensland property specialist has welcomed new data from the Housing Industry Association (HIA) that he says puts talk of a property boom in context.

The HIA report shows that Brisbane prices have fallen 12.3 per cent since 2010 but risen 7.6 per cent since 2005.

Coronis' managing director, Andrew Coronis, said the report contained the most informative data he had come across in a long time, and that the HIA’s long-term view made sense.

“The alarmist headlines and figures we regularly see in the media just don’t paint the full picture, so I am glad to see more reliable data coming out,” Mr Coronis said.

“The HIA figures show that we are still experiencing the ripples of the GFC, but prices overall have been rising at a normal rate over the past 10 years.

“A 7.6 per cent increase in prices in Brisbane since 2005 is, in fact, consistent with what we have seen on the market.”

Mr Coronis said this has implications for investors, who should understand that property is a long-term game.

“It’s a sticky, illiquid investment so people need to look at the long-term view to make informed decisions,” he said.

“Just like any other investment, people need to ensure that property can achieve the kind of return that makes sense for their portfolio, their situation and their personal preferences.”
