      Boom time in Tasmania as Australians flee mainland


      Tasmania's capital, Hobart, currently has the strongest property price growth of any Australian capital - up 17 per cent in the past year. Average house prices there are well below those in Sydney and Melbourne.

      More flocking to once-forgotten state to escape rising prices, congestion in big cities.

      Jonathan Pearlman For The Straits Times In Sydney

      For years, it was the oft-forgotten piece of Australia, which was sometimes left off maps and saddled with one of the worst-performing economies among all the states in the country.

      But the island of Tasmania, off the south-east corner of the mainland, is undergoing something of a boom.

      Surging tourism, growing exports and a thriving property and construction sector have helped fuel growth and led unemployment to drop to 6 per cent, its lowest level in about five years.

      The boom has partly occurred because there has been an influx of people moving to the island to escape the unaffordable property prices and growing congestion of the nation's biggest cities, Sydney and Melbourne.

      Tasmania's capital, Hobart, currently has the strongest property price growth of any Australian capital - up 17 per cent in the past year. Average house prices in Hobart are A$443,521 (S$459,000), well below those in Sydney and Melbourne of A$S1.18 million and A$903,859 respectively.

      Explaining the property boom, Mr Hans Waldhoff, a property consultant from Elders Real Estate - Brown & Banks, said growing interest from people across the country had led to a huge demand in Hobart, a harbour city with a population of about 220,000.

      "Australians are visiting Hobart on holiday and realising what a wonderful place this is to live in, and what a marvellous city to invest in with prices only a fraction of what they pay elsewhere," Mr Waldhoff told the Domain website on Feb 1.

      "As a result, they're buying up big time and with so little product left for sale on the market, that strong price growth will continue well into the future."

      Some of the recent migrants include Dr Ruth Quibell, a sociologist and writer, and her husband, Dr Damon Young, a philosopher and author, who moved from Melbourne to Hobart in November along with their children aged nine and 12.

      The pair said they knew some people who had already moved there who they planned to work and spend time with.

      In an interview with Hobart's Mercury newspaper last month, Dr Quibell said they were attracted by the lifestyle and the natural beauty.

      "I grew up with the mountains and Damon grew up near the beach," she said. "And Hobart offered that combination."

      Tasmania, a former British penal colony, was long derided as Australia's backwater - a state with high unemployment and large pockets of disadvantage. But it has experienced a dramatic turnaround in recent years.

      It has a thriving wine and spirits industry, as well as highly-rated restaurants and cafes, which have all helped to fuel tourism and exports.

      The state has a population of 520,000 but its government wants to increase this to 650,000 by 2050. In January, the state's Growth Minister, Mr Peter Gutwein, launched an advertising campaign to lure people from Sydney, promoting the island's relaxed and stress-free lifestyle.

      "At the moment, Tasmania is the hottest place on the planet and we want to ensure that the rest of the country knows that," Mr Gutwein told ABC News.

      "In Sydney, you can spend up to 12 hours a week travelling to work. In Tasmania, some people will spend around 12 minutes."

      According to the latest analysis of Australian state performances by broking firm Commsec in January, Tasmania now has the nation's highest population growth, rising 0.64 per cent in the past three months.

      Tasmania ranked as the fourth-strongest economy, a big improvement since the first such analysis in 2015, when it was in last place.

      Internationally, the state had a boost when Chinese President Xi Jinping chose to visit during a trip to Australia in 2014. Mr Xi said he had visited every other state and territory in Australia and wanted to see Tasmania.

      It was the highest-level state visit in island's history and has led to growing business ties, including Chinese investment in local tourism, wine, fruit and dairy enterprises.

      But not all are happy with the changes in the state.

      The property boom has left Hobart with almost no rental vacancies and a severe shortage of properties for sale, prompting fears of growing homelessness.

      The head of the Tasmanian Council of Social Service, Ms Kym Goodes, told ABC Local Radio last month that the state government needed to ensure housing and services remained affordable.

      She added: "We have to look at how we ensure that we can house our own population before we look at bringing in a higher number of people from interstate."

      New $2b Offshore International Airport Planned for Northern Bali

      Jakarta. Indonesian private-sector company Bandara Internasional Bali Utara plans to build a new international airport in northern Bali to accommodate growth in foreign tourist arrivals.

      The airport will be built offshore to avoid interference with rice fields, temples and villages.

      Bali receives around 6 million foreign tourists annually, with most visiting the southern part of the island where the only international airport is located.


      Bali Governor I Made Mangku Pastika has met with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on several occasions and they have agreed to build a new airport in Bali on a reclaimed island off Buleleng district.

      "One advantage of building an airport offshore is that we do not need to waste time on land acquisition, which is often very expensive," Freddy Numberi, a former environment minister and now strategic advisor to Bandara Internasional Bali Utara (BIBU), said at a press conference in Jakarta on Thursday (22/02).

      The project is currently awaiting approval by the Ministry of Transportation.

      BIBU is partnering with Airports Kinesis, a Canada-based airport development consulting company, which also helped design Kertajati Airport in West Java.

      "Bali's northern airport will be funded privately by investors from Canada and the Middle East, involving a total investment of $2 billion," said Shad Serroune, chief technical officer at Airports Kinesis.

      Beside opening opportunities for overseas investors, BIBU also hopes to attract local investors who may be interested in the project.

      "Basically, we're open to anyone who wants to inject money into this project, even the regional government," BIBU operations director Tulus Pranowo told reporters.

      "But at the moment, we're purely a privately owned company," he said, confirming that they plan to build the airport without funding from the state budget.

      Responding to a question of when the airport construction project will break ground, Tulus said BIBU was still waiting for the Transportation Ministry to stipulate the exact location before the company will proceed to the next step.

      According to the Transportation Ministry, Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport can only accommodate 17 million arrivals per year, while the provincial government hopes to attract 35 million to boost tourism development

      US dollar testing major support levels.


      In my 2018 Predictions I said "the US dollar would fall significantly in 2018 "
       i
      "U.S. dollar will fall: 2018-01-01


      One of Bellefontaine’s major predictions for 2018 is that the U.S. dollar, which had started a downturn before Christmas will continue to fall in 2018 against many currencies such as the Euro, Canadian Dollar, Singapore Dollar, Australian and New Zealand dollars.

      This is also bullish for items that benefit from a falling dollar such as commodities, precious metals and Bali real estate which is often priced in American dollars.

      He goes on to say that “we may have a scenario like 1980 when overnight surges in oil prices coupled with a great economy led to hyperinflation of over 10%. When prices start to rise for consumer goods people start to adopt the attitude I better buy it now before it goes up. Therefore, huge demand in a short time for consumer goods”.


      As you can see by the chart today the U.S. dollar index is now down 5% in just two months and has actually been done more.



      Right now it is testing a major support level at 89.693.

      If it breaks this support level it may go all the way down and
       and test the support level of a couple weeks ago at 89.552.

      I have a gut feeling that both of these support levels will fail and we will resume a major exponential downturn in the US dollar.

      This is good news for Bali as many hotels and airfares are priced in U.S. dollars therefore it makes it less expensive for tourists.


      As I always say "the more tourists the more real estate buyers".

      Another way to profit from this downturn is to buy foreign currencies such as the Canadian, Japanese and South African Rand. I'm also watching closely the British Pound and Euro which may also benefit substantially from the US dollar downturn.

      I have invested heavily into Silver at 16:50 price range.

      Looks to me the like there might be one last leg of this nine year bull market in the stock market and to take advantage of this I have invested in Amazon, and a few other stocks.

      I highly encourage you to attend my free seminar coming up this Wednesday evening to learn more about how you can make 10 to 20% per year on relatively safe investments.

      Best Asia real estate editor's comment:


      Many people laughed and scoffed at my prediction last year that Sydney real estate was heading down after decades of growth.

      They're not laughing anymore after 24 straight months of a downturn.

      And it's only going to get worse because it will fall exponentially as any investment does.

      You know the time buy will will be when everybody thinks is the worst investment in real estate in the world or when the proverbial "blood is running the streets". That may be years now.

      If you own Sydney real estate you should get out now even if you have a small loss.

      There are much greener pastures such as Bali which is already had the worst downturn in modern history and started back up with growth shown in the last few months.

       The deflation of Sydney’s housing market has continued for the 24th consecutive week, with CoreLogic’s dwelling values index registering another 0.18% decline, and values down a cumulative 3.8% over that 24-week period.

      Dwelling values also down 3.7% over the past 29 weeks:

      Vancouver Ranked #4 City In The World Most At Risk For Real Estate Bubble

      Best Asia real estate editor’s comments:

      As my long-time readers are aware my accuracy level on estate predictions around the world for the past 30 years has been almost 95%.

      Real estate markets are long-term markets and therefore very easy to predict.

      In January of this year I predicted that many Western Cities such as Toronto, Vancouver and London were dangerous real estate markets.

      I also predicted bear market for Sydney Australia and Hong Kong.

      It appears from the well researched article below that my predictions are well founded.

      Sigh, tell us something we don't know.


      As we all already know, Vancouver's housing market is a bit of a gong show and this ranking probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise to us. But rather, simply confirming that our city continues to be a risky investment.

      UBS is a Swiss global financial institution that publishes a Global Real Estate Bubble Index annually. According to a recent report on this index from Visual Capitalist, it states that Vancouver sits at fourth place for being at most risk of a real estate bubble, when compared to other cities around the world.

      Via Visual Capitalist



      While Toronto is ranked #1 most at risk across the globe, with real estate prices having doubled over the last 13 years and scoring 2.12 on bubble risk index, Vancouver does not fall shortly behind. With a score of 1.80, it sits just right below Toronto, Stockholm (2.01) and Munich (1.92).

      Via Visual Capitalist
      The report shows that Vancouver's housing prices have steadily risen between 6-7% annually over the past five years, and as you probably already know, has been deemed "risky territory".
      Last year, there were three key real estate markets that showed no rising in prices, which were Milan, London and Singapore.
      But perhaps this isn't all bad news. If the bubble bursts, maybe not all hope is lost in finally being able to afford a place in this city.

      SINGAPORE HIKES STAMP DUTY 2% ON MILLION DOLLAR HOME SALES AND MORE ASIA REAL ESTATE HEADLINES

      2018/02/21 BY MICHAEL COLE LEAVE A COMMENT


      Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran says the stamp duty hike is not a cooling measure

      Singapore home sales jumped 37 percent in January compared to the same month last year, but it didn’t take long for the city-state to react to the sudden real estate surge as regulators roll out a new tax on luxury homes. Also in the news, the mainland’s outbound party may not be completely over, and Keppel Land has a group of unhappy neighbours on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road. Read on for all these stories and more.
      SG Boosts Stamp Duty on Million Dollar Homes

      Singapore’s move on Monday to raise stamp duty on expensive home purchases is likely to dampen the recent wave of redevelopment sales in the city-state’s recovering property market, analysts said.

      From Tuesday, the wealthy city-state will apply a new top marginal rate of 4 percent stamp duty on the portion of residential property value in excess of S$1 million ($761,615), Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat said in his budget speech. The current rate ranges between 1 and 3 percent. Read more>>

      Residents in a Bangkok neighbourhood have opened up a new front in their battle against a Singapore-based property developer with a plea for the Singapore government to urge Keppel Land to make the modifications they are seeking to a proposed 30-storey condominium.

      The residents sent a letter to the Singapore embassy requesting assistance in the dispute. They want Keppel Land to make design changes to the K5 Condominium project in Sukhumvit Soi 28 so that the structure conforms with Thailand’s Construction and Building Act. Read more>>

      Emerging trends in Australian real estate

      Charles Tarbey February 19, 2018


      Most people can no longer expect that a property will simply sell itself like it has in many markets in the past three years. Some may need to re-evaluate expectations for elements such as price, how quickly a property will sell, and how an agent will manage your transaction.

      In January, CoreLogic reported that national dwelling values fell 0.3% over the month, taking dwelling values 0.7% lower since their recent peak in September last year. Across the capital cities, the softer month-on-month housing market conditions were led by Sydney (-0.9%), with declines also reported in Melbourne (-0.2%), Adelaide (-0.2%), Perth (-0.4%), Darwin (-0.2%) and Canberra (-0.1%) while values in Brisbane were unchanged.

      According to CoreLogic, a preliminary auction clearance rate of 69.1%t was recorded across the combined capital cities over the week ending 18th February. Auctions clearance rates are lower across all capital cities (except Perth and Adelaide) when compared to the same period last year.

      In light of these changing conditions, here are three trends to watch for over the coming year:

      Opportunities that exist outside property hotspots

      By the time a real estate hotspot is found and presented, often they are no longer hotspots. All the information communicated about the area may have occurred by the time the hotspot is publicised and all the buying activity has often taken place.

      Sometimes markets that have attracted negative attention may hold good prospects for savvy investors.

      For example, minutes of the Monetary Policy Meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia have noted that in the eastern capital cities, a considerable additional supply of apartments is scheduled to come on stream over the next couple of years.

      Oversupply can drive prices lower which in turn, may create enticing investment opportunities. Savvy investors may wish to build their cash reserves and be ready to act in falling markets that they believe still hold strong long-term prospects.

      However, in the short to medium terms, it will also be particularly important for investors to consider the prospect of higher vacancies and lower rents. Investors should not be put off by this but should ensure they are well prepared financially for lower rental income in the midst of a potential rental oversupply.

      Equity markets impacting property

      Recent volatility in the equity market may start to influence certain types of property. Discretionary spending areas tend to be the first affected by such volatility. If you are considering buying properties such as holiday homes, it will be as important as ever to define the reasons why you are making the investment and ensure that any investment works for your personal finances.

      An agent who drops their commission too quickly

      When searching for a real estate agent to sell your property in the coming months, it will be important to pay close attention to their negotiation style.

      Whilst negotiation has long been the basis of a successful real estate transaction, it will be a skill that is increasingly important in a softer growth phase as the negotiation process may take a little bit more time, and a little bit more back and forth between parties.

      An agent’s negotiation skills will be on display during your initial consultations, and you may be able to assess their capabilities based on how they negotiate their commission. You should be wary if an agent offers to drop their commission with you too quickly. This could be a potential sign that they may do the same when negotiating your property’s sale price.

      By meeting with a few different agents, you can assess who presents a strong, reasonable argument for a fair price for their services, and in turn, choose the agent who you feel is the right fit for your property.

      As we predicted -Sydney home prices fall for fifth consecutive month

      Best Asia real estate editor’s comments:

      Editor Lawrence dictating newsletter well in Macau next two years ago
      As my long time readers are well aware my accuracy level on real estate predictions  around the world for the past 30 years has been almost 95%.

      Real estate markets are long-term markets and therefore very easy to predict.

      In January of this year I made the following predictions below for Australian real estate now they are coming true.

      2018 Predictions for World’s Real Estate Markets:
      Jan 2018

      "Most of Australian Real Estate Will Fall in 2018:

      In the last couple years Bellefontaine became increasingly bearish on Australian real estate for the same reason that he became bearish on Singapore real estate three years ago. The buyers were not Australians but Chinese speculating on Australian real estate who did take into consideration whether they obtained a positive cash flow. 


      The Australian government has along with the Canadian government recently put in new laws to curtail speculation by foreign investors. Foreign investors will feel less comfortable will find other greener pastures."


      If you want to find out about my future predictions for markets around the world and especially Bali attend my next free seminars coming up next week on the of February 28th and 3 March. Click Here For a Reservation or see further information below the article on Sydney real estate.

      Sydney home prices fall for fifth consecutive month in ‘controlled slowdown’


      SYDNEY home prices look set to fall for the fifth consecutive month as the current market downturn gathers momentum, but experts remain divided on how long the slowdown will last.

      SYDNEY’S median home price looks set to fall for the fifth consecutive month as the current market downturn gathers momentum.

      Preliminary data released by research group CoreLogic showed the median dropped 0.8 per cent over the first 29 days of the month in what the group described as a “controlled slowdown”.


      CoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless said the fall was minor, representing only about a $7000 drop, and was consistent with price movements over previous months.
      In December the median price fell 0.9 per cent to hit $895,000, while in November and October the falls were 0.7 and 0.5 per cent, respectively.


      Activity in the market was largely flat before that, with July representing the last month in which Sydney home values grew.
      Much of the recent slowdown has been the result of bank restrictions on loans to investors, particularly interest-only loans and those involving deposits at less than 20 per cent of the property’s value.


      The frantic pace in which prices went up in recent years — Sydney’s median home price remains 75 per cent higher than it was in 2012 — has also failed to match growth in wages, creating an affordability barrier for buyers that has sapped housing demand.

      CoreLogic publishes its final growth figures for January on Thursday and Mr Lawless said he expected the results to show a softer Sydney housing market pulling down national growth figures.
      The median price of a home across Australia as a whole would likely drop 0.5 per cent for the month, with the Sydney housing market the weakest of the nation’s five biggest capitals, he said.


      “The Sydney market peaked back in July last year and values have been gradually falling since that time (but) it looks like there is a bit of momentum gathering in that downturn,” Mr Lawless said.

      The market wasn’t about to crash and was instead moving through a controlled slowdown that would only impact recent buyers, he added.


      “For the vast majority of homeowners they will still see fairly significant equity in their properties. Only the people that bought around the middle of last year or later will have seen a fairly subtle decline in the values of their property,’’ Mr Lawless said.


      Property experts remain divided over how long the current downturn will last.


      An analysis published by Macquarie this week predicted that Sydney house prices had already stopped falling, although the group did not expect a major bounce back in price growth like the one recorded in 2016, when typical prices climbed nearly 15 per cent over the year.


      Other commentators such as SQM Research’s Louis Christopher expect banks may reopen their lending books to investors midway through the year after falling well-below restrictive targets set by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. This would pave the way for modest Sydney price increases toward the end of the year, he said.


      CoreLogic’s Cameron Kusher, on the other hand, said weaker housing market conditions would likely continue throughout 2018.
