Falling Property Prices


Falling Property Prices

Is there a silver lining to falling property prices?

CoreLogic data shows that capital city house prices are down more than 7% as at October 2022 from the April 2022 peak. RBA continues to raise interest rates with no limit on how high interest rates may climb.

But is there a silver lining to the current trend in falling house prices?

We have summarised the following key points to the upside of the residential property downturn:

  • Increasing gross rental yields
  • Lower auction clearance rates
  • Longer time on the market
  • Regional markets are holding up better than capital cities.

We also cover the current threat to residential property investors:

  • Loan servicing costs are high
  • Harsh penalties for those unable to stay invested for the long term
  • Economic uncertainty
  • Complex legal obligations
  • unexpected maintenance costs.
