Thinking of working in Queensland Real Estate? Well now is the time to obtain your necessary training and grab onto these opportunities.
According to Australia Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the number of people committing to investment properties in Queensland has hit a seven-year high. In April quarter 2015, the housing finance for the purchase of existing Queensland dwellings hit $4.2 billion, the highest since December quarter 2007.
This seven year-high is competitive for current investors but what does this mean for the Queensland real estate industry?
Current investors are likely to switch to Queensland, particular in the South East because of the low interest rates predicted to sustain investor activity in Queensland dwellings and Brisbane’s rental yields more attractive than other major capital cities.
This seven-year high gives real estate professionals the opportunity to grow their Queensland rent roll and obtain more frequent commission with investors purchasing attractive ‘Queenslanders’. All this creates great opportunities for real estate professionals all while supporting activity within the renovation and maintenance sector.
