Covid-19- What does easing restrictions mean for Real Estate and the Market ?

Slowly but surely we are returning to a life with less restrictions as we move through the three phases of easing restrictions in QLD, but what does this mean for Real Estate and the Market?

What affect has the restrictions had on the Market?

Despite the fears and restrictions caused by Covid-19, Astute has readily leased 91% of vacant properties within 8 days of advertising at asking price. Most recently both the REIQ and Corelogic have also reported positive momentum for the QLD Real Estate market.

The REIQ has recently reported that the  QLD market has “weathered the storm” and remain relatively stable across QLD, with “rental vacancy rates are tight and healthy across a large part of the State, ” and sales prices are continuing to rise with  auction numbers “now on the upswing.”

In the latest quarterly report Corelogic has also reported the following stats for Brisbane.

  • Brisbane dwelling values increased by 0.3% in April
  • Dwelling values increased 1.5% in the quarter
  • Brisbane dwelling values are up by 3.8% in the past year
  • Brisbane dwelling values are currently at a record high
