What property investors will be doing in 2022

Are you planning to buy an investment property in 2021?

Or maybe you’re hoping to buy a new home?

Well, you’ll be in good company because 55.2% of the respondents of a recent survey believe now is a good time to invest in residential real estate.

This is significantly fewer than the 74% keen to invest last year, with 17.4.4% of this year’s respondents saying they were going to pause their investment plans until the economic situation became clearer.

And this is a little surprising as only 12.4% said their household finances had worsened because of the pandemic.

In other words, most Australian households have noticed no real change or an improvement to their family finances.

However, 24.7% of respondents plan to buy a new home in 2022 (up a little from 24% last year and 20% the year before).

This is no surprise Covid has made us realise that our homes are more than just a place to live, but now they’re where we often work, work out, and spend most of our days.

Clearly, these buyers are taking a long-term view as the respondents of ourannual Property Investor Sentiment Surveyhave realistic expectations of what’s likely to happen to property values next year.

  • 30.4% of the respondents believing Australian property values would only increase by 5 to 10% in 2022
  • 23.6% forecast a smaller increase in property values of 0-5% in 2022
  • 16.4% believe values will remain steady next year
  • 14.1% believe property values will increase more than 10% next year
  • 4.5%% think property values will decrease 0-5% next year
  • 2.7% see a bigger fall coming – thinking property values could decline 5-10%
  • While 2.8% see declines of over 10% in property values ahead
