  • Despite the price growth, rental yields for a Brisbane apartment remain one of the nation’s strongest at 4.6%, well ahead of the average 3.8%.

CoreLogic’s Director of Research, Tim Lawless: ‚ÄúTotal advertised inventory is more than 20% below levels from a year ago in Brisbane and Adelaide, and around 40% lower than the previous five-year average in both cities. The flow of new listings has generally been higher than normal in these markets; the shortage of available housing inventory in these markets is more due to a rapid rate of absorption as homes sell quickly amidst high demand.”
