Where are Australia’s future homes being built?

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

From June 2020 to April 2021, the number of detached houses approved for development each month nearly doubled from 8,347 to 15,134. A key driver of this was the HomeBuilder grant, as well as other stimulus offered up to keep the Australian economy buoyant during the pandemic. Approvals of attached dwellings (such as townhouses and apartments) haven’t seen the same radical upswing, which means the bulk of new housing supply is made up of houses.

The Foreign Investment Review Board recently released their annual report. It shows that $17.1 billion of foreign investment over 7,056 transactions was approved in the 2019-20 financial year—the end of which included the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. These figures reflect a $2.3 billion increase on the previous financial year, but a decrease in the number of transactions. This means the average transaction size approved by FIRB increased from $1.97 million in FY 2018-19 to $2.42 million in FY 2019-20.

Why I sold early and missed six figures of equity

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

A few weeks ago, we discussed the case of a property investor in Brisbane who grew frustrated by a two-year period of weak performance in his asset and sold it for a loss—only for this positively geared asset to grow in value by 10 percent over the following 15 months. There are many cases of this around the country, with CoreLogic reporting 10.1 percent of properties being sold at a loss in Q4 2020. Data shows those most at risk are investors who only hold their asset for a short-term period (less than four years).
