As an indication of just how hot the property market is right now across Australia’s capitals; 20 Perth suburbs have recorded a median house sale price growth of 10% or more in 2021.

According to Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) President Damian Collins, those figures have met or surpassed forecasting for 15% price growth in Perth by the end of the 2021 calendar year.

“A total of 20 suburbs have seen their median house sale price increase by 10 per cent or more since the start of the year.

“Bicton has experienced the strongest price growth in the first four months of the year, with its median house price increasing 20 per cent to $1.14 million between 31 December 2020 and 30 April 2021. This was followed by North Beach (up 17 per cent to $1.05 million), Sorrento (up 16 per cent to $1.118 million), and Applecross (up 15 per cent to $1.79 million),” Mr Collins said.

The data, courtesy of reiwa.com, reveals that growth suburbs come from both sides of the curve with nine suburbs beneath Perth median house sale price of $508,000 and 11 above – eight of those in the $1 million-plus price range.

“The recovery of the market is widespread across Greater Perth. Six to eight months ago it was mainly the higher end of the market showing strong growth, but now we are seeing movement across the board,” Mr Collins said.

New research suggests spending 40 percent of household income on loan repayments is the new normal

Requiring more than 30 percent of household income to service a home loan has long been considered the benchmark for ‘housing stress’. Yet research shows it is becoming the new normal. The 2024 ANZ CoreLogic Housing Affordability Report reveals home loans on only 17 percent of homes are ‘serviceable’ if serviceability is limited to 30 percent of the median national household income.

Based on 40 percent of household income, just 37 percent of properties would be serviceable on a mortgage covering 80 percent of the purchase price. ANZ CoreLogic suggest 40 may be the new 30 when it comes to home loan serviceability. “Looking ahead, there is little prospect for the mortgage serviceability indicator to move back into the 30 percent range any time soon,” says the report.

“This is because the cash rate is not expected to be cut until late 2024, and home values have continued to rise, even amid relatively high interest rate settings.” ANZ CoreLogic estimate that home loan rates would have to fall to about 4.7 percent to bring serviceability under 40 percent.

CoreLogic has broken down the actual household income required to service a home loan on a 6.27 percent interest rate for an 80 percent loan based on current median house and unit values in each capital city. As expected, affordability is worst in the most expensive property market, Sydney.
