  • Australian house prices to rise by up to 20 per cent

    AUSTRALIAN house prices will rise by nearly 20 per cent over the next three years, buoyed by the "current heat" in the market surrounding first home buyers.

    That’s the forecast from research house BIS Shrapnel’s Residential Property Prospects report - based on data from the Real Estate Institute - released today.

    BIS Shrapnel’s Angie Zigomanis said activity in the lower end of the market - buoyed by the boost to the first home owners grant and low interest rates - were generating “green shoots” of recovery.

    The report says average house prices in most capital cities will grow by between 11 and 19 per cent over the next three years. In real terms (where prices are adjusted for inflation) the level of percentage growth is about half.

    Mr Zigomanis, who said actual prices were more indicative than prices adjusted for inflation, predicts the boost to the first home owners grant combined with low interest rates would kick start further activity in the “upgrading” market.

    How about as home owners? Think if you are selling a house in Australia it would be an advantage.

            It forecasts the Sydney median house will lift by 19 per cent to $770,000 over the three years to June 2014.

              That could be good news to investors, but for FHBs - *ouch*

              I think a lesson here is to get in as early as possible?
