Quarterly house price to income ratio in Australia 2015-2019

House price to income ratio in Australia from 3rd quarter 2015 to 1st quarter 2019

by L. Granwal, last edited Sep 2, 2019
Quarterly house price to income ratio in Australia 2015-2019 The house price-to-income ratio in Australia was 102.6 percent as of the first quarter of 2019. This ratio, calculated by dividing nominal house prices by nominal disposable income per head, was the lowest since the third quarter of 2017. The price-to-income ratio can be used to measure housing affordability in a specific area. A similar trend was seen for the house price-to-rent ratio in the same period.
Property bubble

There has been considerable debate over the past decade about whether Australia is in a property bubble or not. A property bubble refers to a sharp increase in the price of property that is disproportional to income and rental prices, followed by a decline. In Australia, rising house prices have undoubtedly been an issue for many potential homeowners. Along with the average house price, the average value of outstanding mortgages on residential dwellings has also continued to increase over the past 20 years.

Housing affordability

Housing affordability has varied across the different states and territories in Australia. In 2019, the median value of residential houses was the highest in Sydney compared to the other major Australian cities. Housing costs for Australian homeowners with a mortgage were around 16 percent of household income in financial year 2018. This share was higher for renters of private property in the same period.
