Core Logic recently released their monthly update on the Home Value Index.

The Home Value Index rose 0.8% in September 2023. The biggest factor is the continued supply to demand imbalance.

This month had a larger increase than that of August 2023 at 0.7%

The September quarter saw Adelaide record the highest quarterly capital gain at 4.30%, Brisbane in second place with 3.90% and Perth 3.60%.

Hobart going the opposite way with a -0.2% correction.

Tim Lawless notes that the performance of each individual city is directly related to supply.

The three capital cities recording the highest capital gain have advertised supply levels that are around 40%below their previous 5 year average.

Hobart on the flip side having stock levels 40% above the 5 year average.

Since the trough in January 2023 the national home index has recovered by 6.6%, and is now only 1.30% below the historic high of April 2022.

Brisbane looking set to reach a record high in October 2023, 0.6% below it’s peak.

The upper quartile growing easing to 2.3% whereas the lower quartile growth rate has increased to 3.2%.

Affordability being a factor always to consider when investing.

The lower value capitals such as Perth and Adelaide have record the faster rate of growth, with the lower quartile outperforming.

Regional markets are lagging the capital cities recording weaker conditions.
