By Rishabh Dhall

Homeowners could make a hefty profit on their dwellings if they decided to sell now. According to CoreLogic, most of Adelaide’s popular suburbs are achieving more than the expected prices.

There is a substantial increase in home prices in Adelaide, with an 18.6% increase in metropolitan Adelaide and a 6.3% increase in median unit prices.

Looking at the current market, we suppose that the property prices will continue to rise over current the year and will continue to rise in 2022 as well.

According to CoreLogic, the median time on the market for the house dwelling is around 30 days, which has considerably reduced by 2.8% per day, which is a ‘WOW’ factor.

According to CoreLogic Insights, there are 1,850 new listings advertised in the market holding a 74% increase over the past. This is a good sign as the vendors are now showing up and we could expect more listings and competitions in the market.

According to Tim Lawless, “The pace of capital gains across Australian housing markets has been close to record breaking, with the national growth rate in March the fastest since 1988,” he said.

Lesser Clearance Rate

The average clearance rate in the last week of March was at 83.1% which has now been reduced to 78.6% over the week ending April 18th.

“Historically there has been a strong positive correlation between auction clearance rates and the pace of appreciation in housing values,” Lawless said.

 A Spike In The Vendors Activity

As more vendors are taking advantage of the strong selling conditions. There is a drastic increase in the number of new listings.

According to Tim Lawless, “Total advertised stock levels remain low, tracking -17.5 percent below the five-year average, which implies buyers are still likely to feel some urgency, but the lift in stock additions should gradually support a rebalancing between buyers and sellers, especially if buyer activity slows as new supply levels lift”.

Significant Lift In Housing Construction

New Dwelling construction is getting approval by almost 20% increase as compared to the last year ensuing, increase in the overall supply levels.

Adverse Population Growth

Higher housing demand will remain low due to the closing of borders and delayed overseas movement.

According to Tim lawless, “The lift in new home building will gradually add to overall housing supply levels at a time when population growth, which is an important component of housing demand, has turned negative for the first time since 1916 due to closed borders and stalled overseas migration.”

The best time to sell is NOW,

The second best time to sell is NEVER.
