Regional Australia out-performed the combined capital cities market, according to CoreLogic’s Eliza Owen.
Demand for lifestyle areas have been exacerbated by COVID-19, CoreLogic’s best of the best 2020 report revealed.
The report, dominated by Australia’s high-performing regional areas, highlighted the resilience of luxury markets in Australia.
“The relative popularity of lifestyle markets is evident in our report, and regional Australia out-performed the combined capital cities market”, said CoreLogic’s head of research, Eliza Owen.
Sunshine Beach on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast saw the highest annual capital growth in houses nationally, with an annual change in value of 27.6 per cent. The nearby Sunrise Beach also saw a significant annual growth of 24.4 per cent, to a median house value of $1.23 million.
The Sunshine Coast also hosted the regional property market’s best performing units with Noosa Heads and Sunshine Beach placing first and third, respectively, for the highest median unit value.
For investors and owner-occupiers who have yet to break into the Queensland market, their interests are expected to turn to the units with the highest annual capital growth, located on the Gold Coast.
Currumbin recorded a 24.9 per cent annual growth in unit value to $632,749, while Tugun and Bilinga recorded an 18.7 per cent and 21.8 per cent growth, respectively.
Gold Coast’s Palm Beach similarly recorded a 20.8 per cent annual growth in unit prices, and has seen recent trophy apartment sales.
“Overall, the housing market outlook for 2021 is positive, given highly accommodative monetary and fiscal policy, signs of an economic recovery and many first home buyer incentives remaining in place through to early next year,” Owen said.
