Property in Australia

Foreign investors have been buying Australian properties more actively in the first six months of 2009. This is quite interesting and surprising given the fact that the impact of global financial crisis is drastically affecting investment behaviors of businessmen all over the world. Indeed, just like in the past years, real estate sector in the country is performing relatively better compared to the property sectors in other parts of the developed world, including the progressive European and North American countries. Observers and analysts identify several reasons for the continuous uptake in Australia properties. First, the depreciating Australian dollar is boosting the value of the US dollar and other global currencies, making the purchasing power of offshore investors in the country higher.



Second, compounded investment growth rate of about 8% to 10% annually (depending on which state) translates to a 25% upside of local real estate. This is quite higher compared to the overall performance of current global property market.

Many investors are also seizing opportunities posed by lower tax rates on loans and easier procedures in securing them, especially for the purpose of constructing or buying residential properties. Analysts commend the Australian national government for offering a number of incentives aimed at stemming declining confidence in residential markets amid the global economic downturn. In particular, the government has been actively lowering interest rates in an effort to reduce property mortgage costs. The state of Victoria is most popular among foreign property investors because of the local government’s offered perks. The state is imposing lower tax rates and stamps if property buyers would buy land immediately and then settle the full amount as soon as the building or development is completed.


Such incentives further lure and attract more foreign buyers of Australia properties. To date, there are four major types of investors who buy Australian real estate.

Those buyers are those who aim for capital gain, for migration, for properties to be passed on to children in the future, and for lifestyle buying. British investors comprise the biggest bulk of such property buyers collectively, while Asian investors are trying to catch up.

It is expected that in the coming months, the Australia property sector would strengthen further. Federal and local governments in the nation-continent are continuously working hand-in-hand in making the local property sector survive the times.


Indeed, the country’s real estate industry is still young and is up to enjoy more good times ahead.

Private and public sectors are cooperating with each other to make Australia property market more attractive than ever. It is not surprising that the sector is helping the overall national economy survive the challenges of the current times. Growth is looming ahead for sure.
