What is a buyers agent or advocate?
A buyer’s agent, or a buyer’s advocate, is a person who knows how to spot a good deal in the property market, and is an excellent negotiator in conversations and negotiating terms of sale – as well as prices. Using a buyer’s advocate means you don’t have to learn everything there is to know about buying a home, investment property, or self managed super fund asset. You can skip learning all the intricacies and sorting out the best methods of house hunting and just let your advocate handle what they do best. It’s having an expert brisbane property buyer on your side, so you don’t have to bone up and become an expert yourself! The low fees/charges to engage a buyers agent are worth the costs.
Can you manage my investment property in Brisbane?

Brisbane Property Buyers have been able to look past the consistently negative news and media headlines in relation to property values around the country. Over the last few weeks the news has become a lot more optimistic. Brisbane appears to be the city that is likely to see the most price growth over the next few years.
Major Bank economists have updated their property price forecasts this month and they are now expecting possible boom conditions in the coming years. Brisbane has been identified as most likely to out perform the rest of the Capital City Markets around Australia. Westpac’s economists expect Brisbane property prices to surge over 20 per cent between 2021 and 2023.
Brisbane buyers Agent Craig Greer-Smith of Networth Property says the report indicates that the recovery is being driven by sustained low-interest rates, improved affordability, ongoing fiscal support from regulators and both federal and state governments and of course a strengthening economic recovery.
Some of the major bank lenders in Australia have been less bullish, such as Commonwealth Bank and ANZ, but are now changing their views as it being a good time to buy.
Not all property markets around Australia will, of course, recover as quickly as Brisbane is expected to. Local issues of supply and demand will determine local performance. Over the last few months, it has been reported that the Brisbane property market performs in different ways to the Sydney and Melbourne markets. Significant buyer interest from Covid effected states like Victoria are effecting supply and demand and driving upwards property price movements. Brisbane property prices have always been more affordable, with the income to debt ratio a lot lower and the amount of our household income required to service a mortgage here in Brisbane is also a lot lower.
This gives us an enormous advantage over the Southern East Coast Capitals. There is already a noticeable surge in buyer interest from Interstate, driven by affordability and the desire for a better lifestyle. The Covid 19 pandemic has definitely caused a significant shift in thinking for a lot of people in where and the way they want to live, and it seems that South-East Queensland may be set to benefit significantly.
Brisbane Property Market Prices are rising :
According to the latest CoreLogic Home Value Index data, home values in Brisbane saw an overall median monthly price rise of a 0.5 per cent over the month of September 2020. The many dire predictions from many lenders and economists for large falls in value simply did not occur in Brisbane and many property buyers who have been waiting and hoping for the bargains to appear, have been disappointed. In fact, prices in quite a few areas throughout Brisbane have continued to climb.
The recent city price data is showing a large divergence between regions where the virus outbreaks have been mishandled and where the virus is well contained. The Melbourne market has been impacted the most with home and unit dwelling values falling a further -0.9 per cent for the month of September followed by Sydney will price falls of -0.3 per cent. These two markets make up approximately 40 per cent of Australia’s housing stock by number and 55 per cent by value so the national reading still shows a fifth straight month of decline with overall values declining -0.
In spite of the lock downs and restrictions which made for pessimistic predictions of much larger falls, but is does highlight that areas like SE Qld are definitely less impacted than others during this time.
The Brisbane Housing Market actually saw median values for the greater Brisbane region increase 0.4 per cent across the month of September 2020. The current median value for a Brisbane house is now $559,646 and likely to be rising further into 2012 and 2022
The Unit Market in Brisbane which was seen to be oversupplied previously saw a slightly higher median value increase of 0.7 per cent for the month of September 2020. The current median unit price in Brisbane is now $388,505.

The vacancy risk for investment units is still quite high in the Brisbane inner-city region where there is a large number of higher density unit complexes. Rents in the unit market in Brisbane saw price falls -1.6 per cent from March 31 to September 30. This is a consequence of supply and demand-side factors that are slowing starting to balance out. Patient Buyers are seeing some compelling value emerge in better quality buildings.
State and International border closures have definitely reduced apartment demand from interstate and international students as well as short term travellers in Brisbane. Industry sectors like hospitality, the arts and recreational services have been hit the hard by job losses and reduced working hours. Historically people working in these industries are more likely to rent inner-city apartments, which has also negatively impacted on the demand for these investment properties in Brisbane. See below the change in rents for Brisbane Units and Houses from March 31 to September 30 2020.
Why are we seeing a surge in interstate buyers using specialist agents to find the right property in Brisbane?
There is a continuing increase in the number of buyers looking in the Brisbane market. Many are from interstate and have not been able to inspect properties personally. With the fall out from the pandemic situation and of of course the record low interest rates, buyers are turning to specialist buyers agents to try and secure a property in a market that has turned sharply more positive. Also, the recently announced relaxing of responsible lending laws is likely to see credit availability flowing more freely in the months ahead.
It appears that the middle ring suburbs in Brisbane are showing the highest level of buyer demand over recent weeks. This is a combination of first home buyers, investors and families competing for a still relatively small number of properties listings so competition is intense.
There are high volumes of buyers at most open homes every weekend now and even mid-week inspections are busy in many suburbs around Brisbane. Selling agents report multiple offers are becoming very common – this includes properties that are not actually listed online. There is sufficient off-market demand from buyers (mainly through Buyer’s Agents) to cause a higher level of competition for new to and off-market transactions. It appears as if 2021 and 2022 are shaping up as strong years for the Brisbane property market.
Similar to Melbourne, Brisbane’s property market has proven stability and consistency over the last few decades and that will stay true in the coming years. It is expected that the strongest growth (+2.9% percent) will occur in its outer suburbs. A recent survey conducted by Property Investments Professional of Australia (PIPA) showed that out of 800 investors, 44% find that Brisbane offers the best investment prospects.
Brisbane’s steady and large-scale growth has been compared to the growth that the City of Gold Coast experienced in the last decade. Experts find that investors’ increasing demand for Brisbane is due to the far more affordable market compared to Melbourne and Sydney, the employment prospects, as well as the constantly increasing population growth.
Other metropolitan areas must be envious of Brisbane, because when it comes to real estate investments as well as developments in infrastructure and community amenities – it has lifted the bar dramatically. Apart from that, Brisbane is currently experiencing a surge in population growth due to the number of job opportunities and affordable housing.
The Brisbane urban skyline comprises of an eclectic mix of high-rise towers and heritage buildings dating back to the early 19th century, a glimmering spectacle by day and a kaleidoscope of dazzling lights after dark. This is a cosmopolitan and multicultural city that radiates with its laidback and trendy atmosphere where students, large families, and retirees can be spotted sitting in the same cafes enjoying their days in of the sunniest states in Australia. From the heart of the busiest shopping centre rises the tall and dignified-looking building of the City Hall – where palms and fountains create a favourite resting place for citizens who have set the tempo of their lives to the subtropical climate.
Due to the large scale of capital investment in the last decades, Brisbane attracts plenty of multinational business. In fact, the city is expected to benefit from over 18$ billion in investments by 2022.
One of these highly-prospective projects is the Queens Wharf Resort and Casino, approximately worth over 3$ billion, and expected to bring over 4 million new visitors to Brisbane and open around 2000 job opportunities at the pick of the construction. This extravagant casino resort will be the home of 50 new restaurants featuring cuisines from all around the world, garden swimming pools, 12 football fields of public space, alongside with other recreational facilities. It is expected that this resort will look impressive inside and out and it will stand out as one of the city’s most prominent landmarks.
Other notable developments that are currently underway are the Howard Smith Wharves, the second airport runway, the Cross River Rail, and the Bus and Train (BaT) tunnel project, as well as the 1.7$ billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project.
People are relocating out from the expensive and crowded Sydney and Melbourne and many choose Brisbane due to the low mortgage rents and the fact that this bustling contemporary city is one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia in terms of employment and infrastructure investments.
Brisbane has shown exceptional industry strengths and a thriving connection to global markets – not to mention that it prides itself in the numerous multinational businesses attracted by Brisbane’s supportive and open business atmosphere. Brisbane is the Australian capital city closest to Asia, where investors have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of growing industry sectors including digital industries, innovative manufacturing, energy, clean technologies, and infrastructure as well as mining technology and services.
This sprawling metropolitan area with a population of over 2.5 million that is constantly increasing has proved itself a magnet for educated investors looking for solid investments that promise high gains in the future.
