No surprise - Brisbane apartments cheaper than Sydney

Sydney apartments are way more expensive than apartments in Brisbane.

Sydney’s median apartment value currently sits 98.3% higher than Brisbane’s median apartment value, which is the largest premium since late 2002.  The average premium for a Sydney apartment over Brisbane has been recorded at 54.1%.

Does this mean that Brisbane apartment values will rise as a result of this difference?  CoreLogic does not think so:

"We would expect the Sydney premium to reduce over the coming years as values decline however, we also believe that historical premiums for Sydney relative to other capital cities don’t reflect the likely differentials in the cost of housing going forward.  That is to say we expect that the cost of housing in Sydney and Melbourne will continue to be higher relative to other capital cities than it has been in the past."
