Australia Real Estate Market Outlook 2020

The outlook for Australian real estate in 2020 remains positive in most geographies and sectors

The residential sector continues to recover, logistics will benefit from low vacancy in most markets, and in the office sector Perth and Brisbane are forecast to lead the nation in terms of effective rental growth. There are deep pools of capital looking to invest in Australian commercial real estate, but, similarly to 2019, a shortage of stock for sale will mean that some investor demand is unmet.

We are pleased to introduce a new format for our Market Outlook publication. Replacing the solitary report format from previous years is six sector-based chartbooks and six capital city market reports. This format enables CBRE to provide deeper analysis into sectors and geographies, containing more valuable insight from our market specialists.
