Foreign investment in Australian commercial property at record high

The post Foreign investment in Australian commercial property at record high appeared first on Oak Laurel.

Foreign investment in Australian commercial property at record high

Analysis by CBRE has shown that in the September quarter, foreign investors accounted for 56% of the $8.6 billion worth of Australia’s commercial property sales. This is reportedly the highest percentage of foreign buyers in the 10 years of data that have been tracked.

It is thought that the foreign buyers have increased the total sales in the September quarter 8.5% higher than at the same time last year.

Chinese investors are responsible for the majority of the offshore purchases.  The increases of Chinese capital had been initially driven by private investors and developers. However, major institutional investors are also getting involved in the Australian commercial property market. Chinese investors are focusing on major gateway cities such as Melbourne and Sydney.

Major Australian commercial property acquisitions in the quarter include the Chinese sovereign wealth fund China Investment Corporation (CIC) paying almost $2.5 billion for a portfolio of office tower assets sold by the Investa Property Group in what is Australia’s largest ever direct office sale.  The owner of the $8.9 billion Investa platform, Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing, announced that it has sold the property it owned through Investa.

Singapore’s Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust was another significant investor during the period, having snapped up a portfolio of 26 logistics properties from GIC in a deal valued at $1.01 billion.

The net investment position of offshore investors now totals $24 billion.

Victoria has Australia’s fastest growing population

Victoria has Australia’s fastest population growth

The latest data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics has shown that Victoria’s population is growing at the fastest rate in the country.

Victoria had a growth rate of 1.7%, gaining an additional 97,500 citizens in the year to March 2015.  New South Wales and Western Australia has the next highest population growth at 1.4%. See below for the population growth rates of other States and Territories reproduced from ABS data.

The majority of population growth occurs in Australia’s capital cities.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has projected that Melbourne’s population will exceed Sydney’s by 2052 on two of the three scenarios modelled.

Under the “high fertility, overseas migration and life expectancy” scenario, Melbourne’s population would be 9.193 million by the middle of the century and Sydney’s 8.431 million.

Under the “medium fertility, overseas migration and life expectancy” scenario, Melbourne’s population would be 8.162 million, and Sydney’s 8.124 million.

Under the “low fertility, overseas migration and life expectancy” scenario, Melbourne’s population would be 7.353 million and Sydney’s 7.716 million.

Whether or not Melbourne becomes Australia’s largest city by 2052, one thing is clear, all of those people coming to Melbourne are going to need somewhere to live. The demand for housing in Melbourne is going to continue to increase and so are the prices of well located property.

Melbourne is Australia’s hottest property market – Oct 2015

The post Melbourne is Australia’s hottest property market – Oct 2015 appeared first on Oak Laurel.

Melbourne is now Australia’s hottest property market – October 2015

Data shows that Melbourne is now Australia’s hottest property market! Up until recently Sydney was Australia’s hottest property market. There are now indications that Sydney is coming off the boil and Melbourne has become the hottest property market!

What give you that idea you may ask. Well it is all in the data!

Auction clearance rates

Auction clearance rate are in indication of how ‘hot’ a property market is. The greater then clearance rates, usually the greater the gains seen in property prices. When the market is hot, vendors / sellers like to sell their property at auction. High auction clearance rates mean that bitters are reaching the property reserve prices and in many cases can exceed the reserve price by a large margin as buyers are willing to bid extra so that they don’t need to try again at the next auction and face paying even more at a later date.

Currently, the number of properties going to auction is the highest in Melbourne with over a thousand properties going to auction in a week according to Domain.com.au.  With all those listing you might expect that the clearance rate goes down due to competition between properties on the market but the auction clearance rate was the equal highest in Melbourne and Adelaide. However, Adelaide only has a hundred or so auction in a week so a high clearance rate is not that indicative of a hot market when so few properties are being put for auction.

Sydney has had a good run but now the auction clearance rate is down from previous highs and lagging behind Melbourne’s. This does not mean that Sydney is dead, with around a 70% auction clearance rate, it just means that it is lagging behind Melbourne.

Property price index

According to the Core logic RP data home value index in the past couple of weeks Melbourne has been hitting new price highs each day. Other  cities have been behind their past price highs. This may only be a rough measure but where consistent gives an indication of where the gains are being made.

Individual property sales

Though not much can be gained from individual property sale prices, it can give some indication of the trend. For example last Saturday a property in Mount Waverley in Melbourne’s south east, a suburb attracting buyers for proximity to amenities especially good schools, sold for $6 million. The block was large and there was speculation that it was for redevelopment but even so if that is an indication of the land price then the land prices are appreciating quickly in Mount Waverley and surrounding suburbs.

 

Conclusion: Melbourne is the hottest property market and has good long term prospects

With Melbourne headed to be Australia’s largest city I guess that it is no surprise that there is a lot of interest in Melbourne’s property market. With more and more people moving to Melbourne, more than any other Australia city, the interest in well located Melbourne property is only likely to continue in the future.

Construction approvals yo-yo with large apartment developments

The post Construction approvals yo-yo with large apartment developments appeared first on Oak Laurel.

Construction approvals up and down with large apartment developments

New residential dwelling construction approvals are down in August 2015 after a high level of approvals in July.

Statistics from the Australian Bureau of Statistics on building approvals, showed that over the month of August 18,701 dwellings were approved for construction. This is down by  6.9% from the previous month of July.

Apartment approvals accounted for most of the decrease, with a 11.4 per cent fall. Private sector house approvals actually rose by 4.9%.

The level of building approvals has been up-and-down in recent months. The 6.9% fall in August comes after a 4.2% increase in July, a 5.2% decrease in June, a 2% increase in May, and a 5.2% decrease in April.

The increase in July was mainly attributed to the approval of large apartment development projects. The level of approvals excluding houses in July was up 6.1% from the previous month.
