SQM Research MD Louis Christopher expects growth in housing prices in Australia’s capital cities to average 11 per cent in 2020. The latest edition of Christopher’s Housing Boom and Bust Report forecasts that dwelling prices in Melbourne will rise by up to 15 per cent, while Sydney’s housing market will record growth of 10-14 per cent. However, the Darwin market is expected to buck the trend, with a two per cent downturn in 2020. Christopher says the housing market rebound is unlikely to be sustained over the longer term.
