Property Market – News, Analysis & Forecasts
Our goal here at Profit Watch is to keep you up to date with the latest property market news and analysis.
Sometimes we talk about the global property market and sometimes we talk about the Australian property market.
This is the stuff that matters when you are trying to make a property investment decision.
A crash in one part of the global property market could feed through to Australia, with the potential for a financial crisis driving Aussie house prices down.
With this in mind, Profit Watch is generally bullish on the Australian property market.
Let us explain why…
The property market operates on a cycle
What virtually no one tells you about Aussie real estate is that it operates on a cycle.
Knowledge of this cycle is essential to making more informed property investment decisions in this country.
The Australian property market is a complex beast — one that is difficult to navigate if you don’t understand the way the Australian economy works.
So on this page you will find property market forecasts, useful property charts and pretty much anything we think is important for you to know before you make a move in the real estate market.
Will the Australian property bubble burst?
You’ve seen the headlines — ‘Australian Property Bubble Set to Burst’ or ‘Australian Property Crash Imminent’.
The fact is, there is a lot of misleading information out there in the property market. Talk of a crash in Australian real estate is often driven by a profit motive.
Fear sells, it’s as simple as that.
No doubt, Aussie homeowners felt the pinch in 2018, with the market down 6.5% for houses and 5.3% for units.
This brought house prices back to mid-2016 levels.
2019 was largely flat with an annual gain of 2.3% nationally for all dwellings.
But there is a difference between housing and other types of property.
For instance, retail property continues to falter while industrial and office/corporate thrive.

The main thing to keep in mind about the Aussie property market is that passive income from rent is one of the most, if not the most desirable forms of income.
The rent generated from land is so desirable that some people speculate on property just to scrape away the smallest bit of rent.
Knowing this will make you a far smarter property investor.
