There are different trends for the apartment market in different parts of Brisbane. For example, West End and The Valley may be oversupplied at present, but there is an undersupply of large quality apartments in the Western Suburbs.
Place Projects have produced an interesting report, in two parts, that is worth reviewing:
See Part 1 and Part 2
From the report:
"It’s no secret that the Brisbane apartment market has suffered in recent periods. As shown in the graph below, each of the three regions have experienced varying amounts of decline over the past two years.
Over the past 12 month period, Brisbane’s Inner Ring has experienced the largest decline in median apartment prices, decreasing by 3.5%. This was followed by the Middle Ring, declining by 2.7% over the period, whilst apartment prices in Brisbane’s Outer ring decreased by just 0.7% over the period.
The Inner Ring does however, remain to be the most expensive region to purchase an apartment. During the six month period ending December 2016 apartment prices sat at $468,000, compared to $445,000 in the Middle Ring and $380,000 in Brisbane’s Outer Ring. Longer term, the Middle ring has experienced the highest price growth, with median apartment prices increasing by 3.5% per annum over the past ten years, followed by the Inner Ring and the Outer Ring, recording 2.7% and 2.3% price growth per annum respectively over the past ten year period."
