Historical Trillion Dollar Housing Market in Queensland lends much needed Confidence
According to property research company Corelogic, the value of Queensland's housing market has cracked the trillion dollar mark for the first time in history.  The 10% increase took the state's residential property figure from $910 bn in 2016 to $1.004 tn in 2018.

Doron Peleg RiskWise Property Research chief executive said that the value of Queensland's housing market breaking through the $1 trillion was a gamechanger.

"You cannot ignore a $1 trillion housing market," Mr Peleg said.

"It makes Queensland the third major player, yet it often gets overlooked by policy makers. "This shows it is a big market with a huge impact on the economy."

With Queensland's improving economy, housing affordability, a rise in interstate migration and increased optimism in the residential real estate sector continues to drive the value in the state's property market.

"It is important to remember the state had a two-speed housing market, with houses in the state's southeast performing well but units still carrying some risk", said Mr Peleg.

"Overall, due to the improved economy, increase in employment and population, $15 billion construction boom and the Advance Queensland Business Development Fund, Queensland is projected to deliver good long-term capital growth," he said.

"However, proceed with caution when it comes to units and in some areas of Queensland, particularly mining towns."
