ANZ Bank Tips House Price Rise

Australian housing prices are set to rise 17% in 2021 across capital cities according to ANZ economists.

Sydney and Perth housing prices are predicted to rise by 19% in 2021, with Hobart (18%), Melbourne and Brisbane (16%) and Adelaide (13%), following on.

ANZ reported that property prices rose a rapid 9% in the month of February, accelerating sharply from the 0.5– 0.6% gains over the previous three months.

The latest figures are a stark difference from the forecast 9% national rise for 2021 previously predicted by the bank.

ANZ senior economist Felicity Emmett said she expected the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) would then introduce macroprudential measures later in the year to slow house price growth to 6% in 2022.

The new forecast figures comes as the red-hot property market continues to surge amid ultra-low interest rates, the likelihood that rates will stay low and pent-up demand following last year’s lockdown measures.
