Key Property Trends Shaping the Australian Housing Market in 2023


If you’ve kept your eye on the housing market recently, you’ll be used to its ups and downs. Australia's real estate landscape is ever evolving, influenced by economic factors, societal shifts, and, of course, the enduring Aussie dream of owning a home.

Here are some current property trends shaping the housing market this year.

Population Expansion
With around 5.2 million residents, Sydney is on track to reach 8 million people by mid-century. NSW is expecting to grow to 10 million. With a deliberate push by the government's efforts to attract more immigrants to address labour shortages, it is a sure bet the growing population will play a significant role in the demand for housing, which, in turn will push up housing prices.

Housing Markets Resurgence
After a robust performance in 2020 and 2021, Sydney’s property values experienced a decline of 12.3% from their peak in January 2022. The good news is that the market has made a positive turnaround and is expected to grow by 5-6% in 2023. Major research agencies report that a slowdown in the luxury sector has been offset by an upswing in the affordable housing segment over the past seven months.

The Rise of Sustainable Living
Australians are more eco-conscious than ever and are willing to pay a premium for properties that reduce their carbon footprint. Homes with high energy efficiency ratings and sustainability features are in high demand. Buyers are looking for properties with insulation, solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems, and eco-friendly materials to not only help the environment, but also save money in the long run.

Aging Population and Downsizing
Australia's population is aging, and this demographic shift is leading to increased demand for smaller, low-maintenance homes. Retirees who want to maintain or upscale their lifestyle are looking for homes that offer affordable luxury.

Renting and Airbnb are Long-Term Trends
Renting continues to be a popular choice for many Australians, especially among younger generations who value flexibility and mobility. Short-term rentals are booming in tourist hotspots and city centres, with many homeowners joining Airbnb. Both savvy investors and ordinary families are opting to build new duplex homes and properties with granny flats to capitalise on these trends and benefit from extra income streams.
