Dan Phillips - Being an absentee owner, I have entrusted management of my Brisbane property to Rental Trends for a number of years now. All dealings I have had with Ann and her team have met my expectations over this time, and I would highly recommend Rental Trends for their professional management in protecting all property interests.
Despite subdued activity in the apartment market, Brisbane’s apartment market value in Brisbane declined by just 1 per cent in 2018 and 0.7 per cent in 2019.
CoreLogic-Moody's Analytics recently noted that that the Queensland housing market was generally faring better than other states and has tipped apartment values across the greater Brisbane area to jump by a strong 5.6 per cent next year with a further 5.8 per cent rise in 2021.
The positivity has filtered back into Brisbane's apartment market with a trove of residential developments lodged and approved in Brisbane over August.
The highlighted properties show a continued focus from developers on boutique projects aimed at owner-occupiers in core apartment markets.
It is no surprise to see two proposals located in New Farm, with planning constraints making smaller complexes ideal and a buyer pool chasing higher-end product with larger floorplates.
Other multiple dwelling proposals not on this list can be found on CityShape, which shows a number of existing approvals being rejigged to accommodate changing market conditions and buyer profiles.
