BRISBANE House Prices Tipped to Rise Another 10% in 2022

Westpac has upgraded its housing market forecasts, tipping house prices to lift by a further 5 per cent in the remaining three months of 2021 to be up 22 per cent for the year.

Prices in the major capital cities are already up 17 per cent for the year to September and are tracking for a 1.5 per cent gain in October.

Westpac expects Sydney home prices to lift by 27 per cent for this year, well above its previous forecast in August of 22 per cent, before lifting again next year by 6 per cent.

Melbourne is also expected to surpass its previous forecast by 2 per cent to be up 18 per cent for the year.

Sydney’s house prices and Melbourne’s house prices are currently, 18 per cent and 10 per cent respectively, above their previous price peaks in 2017-18.

Brisbane’s house prices, already up 19.9 per cent over the last ten months, still has a further 2 per cent to grow before the close of the year, before picking up again by 10 per cent in 2022.

Nationally, prices are forecast to lift again next year, with Westpac revising its earlier call of 5 per cent to 8 per cent.

The bank expects most of 2022’s increase to be weighted in the first half of the year before moderating.

When are Australian house prices expected to drop?

Westpac chief economist Bill Evans said the bank was preparing for the market to move into a correction phase in early 2023 as higher interest rates, stretched affordability and the tightening of macro-prudential policies take hold.

“While the market upturn has weathered the latest Covid disruptions very well and is clearly carrying strong momentum, the boom is entering trickier territory,” Evans said.

“Price momentum has held up near term, prompting us to revise up the near-term outlook for prices.

“However, affordability is becoming stretched and policy tightening is now in play.”
