The lustre of Australian property shines on despite global uncertainty

The latest edition of the awards launches as Australia recovers and strengthens its appeal to overseas property buyers, according to Property Report by PropertyGuru, the official magazine.

Highlighting the growing number of high-rise options around Australia, and in particular, the Melburnian suburb of Box Hill, PropertyGuru’s Property Report for December 2023 – January 2024, delved into the rise of multi-storey in Australia, alongside the necessity and incentives for higher density.

The piece also shone a light on the new price records achieved across the nation. Sydney recorded a median price of over $1.11 million as of the start of October 2023; Melbourne recorded a median of $776,716 for the same period, and Adelaide recorded a median of $691,591.

Alongside strong returns and outstanding performance, PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards and Events general manager, Jules Kay, added that the Australian property market’s strength also lies in its governance.

“Amid global uncertainties, Australia offers a well-regulated environment, attracting international investors as a haven of stability and opportunity.”

Kay added that the nation’s natural beauty was another major drawcard.

“From the picturesque waterfronts of Gold Coast to the multicultural cities of tomorrow in New South Wales and Victoria, Australia offers some of the finest lifestyle value propositions in the world.

“The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards amplify this message, providing a platform to showcase Australia’s best real estate to the rest of Asia-Pacific.”

From Australian success to the regions

Joining Kay at the launch event was Travis Su, managing partner of Skyland Group, winner of the Best Luxury Boutique Developer title at the 6th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Australia) 2023.
