A report from Propertyology notes that growth in Australia’s median house price exceeded that of apartments by 20 per cent over the five years to April, and the firm expects this trend to continue for some time. Propertyology director Simon Pressley says factors such as an apartment glut and concerns about building defects means that people who have bought apartments in medium-to-high-density towers over the last two decades should sell them as soon as possible. He warns that some of these buildings are of such poor quality that demolition may be the only option to restore public confidence in high-rise towers.
