Case analysis of auction market in Brisbane housing system
Only recently, the average Australian residential property market was experiencing negative growth caused by the decrease of average housing prices in the major capital cities, in particular, Sydney and Melbourne. However, other cities were registering positive growth. In a decade, the average house price in Brisbane has increased by more than 150 per cent. In 1994, the highest average house price in Brisbane was around $310,000 but in 2004 it reached $780,000. The high appreciation expectation has also influenced the choice of housing transaction method. In a boom market, auction in Sydney and Melbourne contribute a certain level of residential property market share. In Sydney, there was 50 per cent of all real estate sold by auction marketing. During the same boom period, the Brisbane auction market only had 20 to 30 per cent market share. This initial study aims to explore Brisbane housing auction market and the risk/benefit analysis to stakeholders in the auction mechanism. This study analyses the results from in-depth interview of representative of stakeholders and recent sales data (mid August to early October 2005). It was also found that vendors gain more benefits than buyers in the auction market. However, the strict terms of conditions that apply in auction transactions relative to the private treaty sales have discouraged buyers from utilising the auction process.
