Record levels of new apartment completions in inner-Brisbane’s apartment market has seen it tipped into oversupply, with 52 projects abandoned or deferred over the 2017-18 period.


A new report from economic forecaster BIS Oxford Economics shows 8300 apartments will be completed in 2017-18, up from the 5,700 apartments that came on line last year. Another 5000 apartments are in the pipeline for 2019.

Due to these numbers, vacancy rates in the inner-Brisbane market have increased, sitting at four percent in the December quarter for 2017.

The flow-on effects of the large-scale development and high-rise projects flooding the market have ensured downwards pressure on rents and prices for Brisbane residents.

Brisbane’s record levels of apartment completions, buoyed by an investor-heavy market, has been well publicised, and BIS has signalled that the inner Brisbane apartment market may level out.
