I like to look back at predictions, interesting, the so called experts most of the time don't seem to get it right BIS Shrapnel predicting 17% growth for Brisbane over the next three years, we are now 2 years since this article was written... Also predicting Melbourne to slow down, yet we are in mid 2016 and this market continues to be a relatively strong, infact 2014/15 I would say Melbourne was a booming market. Glad I never took too much notice of these reports. Is Brisbane hot on Sydney’s heels? Posted In June 25, 2014 BIS Shrapnel are pipping Brisbane to be the next boom town, accelerating past Sydney and a slowing Melbourne. In the long run though, big structural factors will give every capital city a lift. A recent report from BIS Shrapnel reckons Brisbane will be Australia’s premier property market over the next three years. Even over three years picking price growth is a tricky business, but for what it’s worth, BIS see prices in Brisbane growing 17% over the next three years. That’s a pretty decent clip. It also sees Brisbane accelerating past Sydney, where BIS expect prices will grow by 10 percent. Melbourne on the other hand is likely to feel the head-winds of some recent job-losses in the manufacturing sector, and prices are predicted to grow around 8 percent.
