Apartment Market – Bank Lending – Oct 2016

We spoke with a few relevant partners from our Reality Channel network (developers, valuers, consultants and financiers) about the current state of bank lending for apartments. We also asked about the risk of settlement failures and trends within each market. Comments are split between Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane due to the divergent nature of the markets.

  • The industry recognises the challenges in the finance market but developers are factoring in longer settlement times and accommodating their existing presales.
  • No evidence of increased settlement failures.
  • In Melbourne CBD and Southbank, apartments bought off the plan 18 months ago will be settling in the next 6 months and after that the pipeline is slowing.
  • Sydney is the optimal market to be operating in with continued demand.
  • Melbourne is experiencing solid demand for owner occupied developments in the inner suburbs.
  • Brisbane is the market under the most pressure due to oversupply and lower relative population growth.
  • Funding for offshore buyers is predominantly coming from Asian banks.
