We all know there are markets within markets. We always hear about Brisbane-wide (or worse, SE QLD-wide) stats, but it's never easy to get specific suburb stats. You probably all know me as being a big fan of the Sunnybank and surrounding areas so now I have some stats to backup my enthusiasm... I can't take credit for this btw - it all comes from QMT (credit where credit is due), except for the following analysis, that's all mine: My analysis / observations: In the last 18 years, there have only been 2-4 years with negative growth. And of those, at least half of those were a result of a freak incident (the 2011 flood) Notice the market takes off in 2002 - for reference, the Sydney boom ended in 2003, which supports the trend that Brisbane generally takes off after Sydney Notice how the boom always hits Sunnybank first and trickles out to Sunnybank Hills and Runcorn as people get priced out - again something I and other investors here have been saying for a while (compare 2002 - 2004 Sunnybank with the other two, notice both the magnitude and the 1 year delay) Notice the dwindling stock levels in the second chart - this is good news for price growth...it's cheaper to buy, but on the flip side it's also cheaper for vendors to hold on as well Also notice the peak sales periods are the start of Spring and towards the end of Summer (third chart). We're just entering Spring now! Hold onto your hats ladies and gentlemen... Enjoy.
