Date: 11 March 2011

Denise Pinwill, Principal, First National Real Estate Beerwah expects the Queensland property market to weaken in 2011. “House price decreases of up to five per cent are expected as a result of an excess of properties on the market relative to current rates of sale,” Denise said in the 2011 First National Property Market Outlook released this week. “Some regional areas are doing well, but the majority of the state’s markets are moderating.” Denise expects apartment/strata property prices to trend downwards with marginal decreases of between one and five per cent as the market waits on many project sale properties yet to enter the resale market, coupled with less than desirable market conditions.
