Brisbane only capital to grow last month defying national decline

BRISBANE was the only major state capital to see home values grow last month, escaping the worst national housing decline in six years that's hit other states.

Preliminary CoreLogic results show September values in Brisbane jumped 0.1 per cent at a time when every other major capital city went backwards.

Annually Brisbane's growth has hit 0.8 per cent – the highest of all state capitals – while both Sydney (-6.1 per cent) and Melbourne (-3.1 per cent) dropped substantially into negative territory.

CoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless said Brisbane now represented "great buying opportunities" with a more balanced market than Sydney or Melbourne.

Fears simmer about more cuts to investor lending from banks

As approvals for interest-only and investor loans take a big tumble, property investors are fearing the worst about their prospects for new loans and refinancing – but experts remain optimistic.

The latest APRA statistics show investor home loan approvals fell by 12.4 per cent over the last year to 30 June 2018. Further, interest-only loans took a 54.9 per cent dive in the last quarter.

These results are leaving property investors concerned that the market for financing will grow continually more difficult, compounded by declining values in capital cities like Sydney and Melbourne.

Property expert hits back at Labor's controversial negative gearing policy

ONE of Australia's most outspoken property experts has issued a dire warning for Labor, insisting the party could "destroy the property market".

Last week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison told news.com.au the ALP's vow to limit negative gearing to newly built homes would actually "invite a housing market crash".

The policy is at the core of the Labor's housing proposals — and negative gearing policy is expected to be one of the major issues at the heart of the next federal election.

Now, property investor and author Bushy Martin has weighed into the divisive debate, claiming Labor's plan could end up decimating our already ailing housing market.

Today's top-performing city is probably not the one you thought it was

As property managers or BDMs, your clients prefer to invest in the best-performing capital city market. But given the circumstances in the current market, this one might not be the capital city you imagined, according to one property expert and lecturer.

Speaking to REB sister publication Smart Property Investment, Peter Koulizos, chairman of the Property Investment Professionals of Australia and lecturer at TAFE SA and the University of South Australia, highlighted that Adelaide is currently the best-performing capital city market on the mainland and has great potential for future growth.

"If you were looking to buy into a market, I reckon you've got two options: there's either Adelaide or Brisbane because basically everywhere else is going backwards," the PIPA chairman said.

With the previous success of Sydney and Melbourne over the last 10 years, Mr Koulizos said that the next 10 years are unlikely to do well, while Adelaide and Brisbane are next in line to see growth.
