Start Sounding the Alarm!
Australia will run into a glut of apartments in just two years led by Melbourne and Brisbane - but other cities are also building more than they need, says BIS Shrapnel.
The forecaster, which started warning about an apartment overhang in Melbourne a year ago, is now also ramping up warnings about Brisbane and Adelaide.
Brisbane's voracious appetite for apartment construction has resulted in a stock surplus that dates back at least to 2006, but that glut is about to triple from 5000 from last financial year to 15,000 by next year, BIS Shrapnel says.
