This year we celebrate 21 years of delivering insights into the housing market through the Australian Housing Outlook report.
Authored by BIS Oxford Economics, the Green Edition explores how the housing market is changing as we move towards a sustainable future. Australia has made many gains in the way we approach more efficient and effective green living standards. The report incorporates a comprehensive view of housing, sustainability and the housing outlook as Australia and dwelling prices enters a phase of correction.
Capital cities at a glance
Housing market insight
The housing market slowdown will be widespread but with significant variation across geographies. Sydney is the most indebted and least affordable capital city, making it the most susceptible to rising borrowing costs and is therefore expected to experience the most substantial decline. Perth on the other hand is finding support from a buoyant resources sector and a strong recovery in population flows.
