The trend is your friend – Housing price growth in Australia over the past 25 years and prediction for next 25 years in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane
Strong housing market conditions over the last 25 years have boosted median house values by over 400pc for houses and 300pc for units compared to 261% for ASX value
The capital gain over the past 25 years equates to an annual growth rate of 6.8% for houses and 5.9% for units.
Investing in these asset classes have provided homeowners with a significant wealth boost, and one of the main ingredients for building this wealth is leveraging your asset growth with debt, which has largely grown in the same proportion as property prices .
And using debt to fund the purchase of growth assets is a massive leverage to create wealth.
So how do the numbers extrapolate?
At the same rate of growth over the next 25 years, Australia’s national property values could rise to $2.9 million for houses and $2.1 million for units by 2043
Sounds a lot?
25 years ago $1m for a property sounded a lot!!
One thing you can be sure of…..
The housing markets will continue to move through their cycles, with periods of growth, decline and steady values conditions …..
….. but in my view …. over time these cycles will smooth out the year to year volatility in growth rates.
