Rising Coastal Suburb Prices Predicted

Coastal suburb house prices in Sydney and the Gold Coast are tipped to climb over the next two years, a new report shows.

Data calculated by Select Residential Property predicts a rise of up to 23.05% in southern Sydney suburb Gymea Bay and 21.6% in northern beaches suburb Warriewood.

Based on housing supply and data indicators — which indicates a want for larger properties, close to the water and further from the CBD as driving factors – the median house price in Gymea Bay is set to rise by $311,711 to 1,664, 359 and in Warriewood by $360,310 to $2,025,330.

In determining the price trajectory for a suburb, Select Residential Property research director Jeremy Sheppard takes into account 17 demand and supply metrics, including auction clearance rates, vacancy rates, discounting levels, days on market and the number of properties available to arrive at a ‘suburb score’.

“The list of areas with the highest growth potential all have high demand relative to supply and all scored well above 80, which are historically reflective of double-digit growth rates,” said Mr Sheppard.

Across the country, house values in the Gold Coast’s Elanora and Worongary are also expected to grow over the next 24 months, indicating a potential 22% each. Elsewhere, Melbourne’s Keilor Park and Diamond Creek are to see 10% and Adelaide’s Cumberland Park is forecast to grow by 20.6%.

Queensland’s Airlie Beach and South Townsville are expected to see unit value drop by 8.5% and 8% respectively. Similarly, the report predicts South Bunbury and Bunbury in Western Australia is staring down an 8.6% and 7% drop respectively.

Ray White’s chief economist outlines her predictions for housing market trends in 2024

Ray White’s chief economist, Nerida Conisbee says property price growth will continue next year and mortgage holders will need to “survive until 2025” amid expectations of higher interest rates for longer.

Ms Conisbee said strong population growth and a housing supply shortage combatted the impact of rising interest rates in 2023, leading to unusually strong price growth during a rate hiking cycle. The latest CoreLogic data shows home values have increased by more than 10 percent in the year to date in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Among the regional markets, price growth has been strongest in regional South Australia with 8.6 percent growth and regional Queensland at 6.9 percent growth.

“As interest rates head close to peak, it is expected that price growth will continue. At this point, housing supply remains extremely low and many people that would be new home buyers are being pushed into the established market,” Ms Conisbee said. “Big jumps in rents are pushing more first home buyers into the market and population growth is continuing to be strong.”

Ms Conisbee said interest rates will be higher for longer due to sticky inflation. “… we are unlikely to see a rate cut until late 2024 or early 2025. This means mortgage holders need to survive until 2025, paying far more on their home loans than they did two years ago.”

Buyers in coastal areas currently have a window of opportunity to take advantage of softer prices, Ms Conisbee said. “Look out for beach house bargains over summer but you need to move quick. In many beachside holiday destinations, we saw a sharp rise in properties for sale and a corresponding fall in prices. This was driven by many pandemic driven holiday home purchases coming back on to the market.”

3 key housing market trends for 2024

Here are three of Ms Conisbee’s predictions for the key housing market trends of 2024.

Luxury apartment market to soar

Ms Conisbee said the types of apartments being built have changed dramatically amid more people choosing to live in apartments longer-term and Australia’s ageing population downsizing. “Demand is increasing for much larger, higher quality, more expensive developments. This has resulted in the most expensive apartments in Australia seeing price increases more than double those of an average priced apartment. This year, fewer apartments being built, growing population and a desire to live in some of Australia’s most sought-after inner urban areas will lead to a boom in luxury apartment demand.”

Homes to become even greener

The rising costs of energy and the health impacts of heat are two new factors driving interest in green homes, Ms Conisbee said. “Having a greener home utilising solar and batteries makes it cheaper to run air conditioning, heaters and pool pumps. We are heading into a particularly hot summer and having homes that are difficult to cool down makes them far more dangerous for the elderly and very young.”

More people living alone

For some time now, long-term social changes such as delayed marriage and an ageing population have led to more people living alone. However, Ms Conisbee points out that the pandemic also showed that many people prefer to live alone for lifestyle reasons. “Shorter term, the pandemic has shown that given the chance, many people prefer to live alone with a record increase in single-person households during the time. This trend may influence housing preferences, with a potential rise in demand for smaller dwellings and properties catering to individuals rather than traditional family units.”
