Property prices predicted to continue increasing in 2022

In 2022, the Australian property market could see similar growth as 2021 but not as strong, says the newest Bricks and Mortar market forecast.

Here is what the experts predict:

  • In 2022 we will see property price increases but not at the same acceleration as 2021.
  • Bank interest rates are likely to increase, which could reduce the numbers of buyers.
  • As restrictions lift, the supply of homes available on the market should increase.
  • Houses are predicted to outperform units again.
  • The regional property market is likely to continue to be a popular choice for home buyers.
  • When the borders open, experts predict a spike in rental prices and demand.

Overall, the Australian property market exceeded all expectations this year. Nationwide prices for houses and units rose 22.2 per cent and the median value of a home went up by $126,700. Many economists predict that the market's momentum will likely slow down but not to pre-pandemic levels.
