For the December quarter 2018, Brisbane property market posted an almost flat year-on-year growth, after it registered gains in the previous quarters. Whilst industry experts point the reason of the slowdown to the tighter credit access that’s crippling housing market in other capital cities, optimism remains high for Brisbane housing market. Queensland remains to be a favourite among interstate migrants and overseas buyers; with QLD’s strong fundamentals, Brisbane housing market is seen to remain stable, if not growing.
