BIS Oxford Economics produces the following reports on the residential apartment markets:

BIS Oxford Economics' apartment reports are unique in the marketplace. While most analysis is undertaken at the supply level via a list of apartment projects in the development pipeline, we also model occupier demand to determine whether the pipeline is likely to be absorbed, or if a deficiency or surplus of supply will ensue.

As a result, the reports provide both a picture of current market conditions, as well as a forward-looking document that addresses the issues facing these important sub-markets today:

  • Who are the apartment occupiers and what drives their demand?
  • How do overseas and interstate migrants and buyers influence demand?
  • What does the pipeline of supply in each of the markets look like?
  • Can each market absorb future new supply? 
  • What is the prospect for rental growth, yields, prices, and how does this interact with off-the-plan demand for new apartments? 

BIS Oxford Economics are the only analysts who provide a detailed model of apartment occupier demand, allowing us to examine the interaction between demand and the supply pipeline to forecast the outlook for vacancy rates and consequently rental growth, yields, prices, and future off-the-plan demand.

These comprehensive reports are an important analytical and strategic tool for developers, construction companies, financial institutions, or anyone with an interest in the outlook for this key residential market.
