Residential Property

BIS Oxford Economics forecasts house prices by Australian capital city and dwelling commencements by state. BIS Oxford Economics has extensive expertise in forecasting the housing market for investors and owner-occupiers, along with having a thorough understanding of demographic trends.


BIS Oxford Economics regularly works with developers to assist them with development proposals, project feasibility and marketing. A sample of the range of work undertaken by BIS Oxford Economics can be seen below: 

Bespoke Demand and Supply Analysis of Residential Proposals on Individual Sites

BIS Oxford Economics regularly works with developers to assist them with development proposals, ranging from profiling local demand and supply, examining the dwelling mix, as well as providing projections of take up rates, rent and price growth. The data is typically used by the client for project feasibility and marketing purposes. Projects include apartment sites in Erskineville and Eastwood in Sydney, Coburg in Melbourne, as well as land subdivision in outer Brisbane. 

Long Term Take up of Subdivision Land 

BIS Oxford Economics was asked by a developer who had land banked a major site beyond the current development front in Brisbane to forecast the take up of subdivision land to project how long it will take for the development front in the corridor to reach their site in order to help enable them to better understand the timing of development in outer Brisbane and assist them with the planning process. 

Demand Modelling for Retirement Accommodation 

BIS Oxford Economics regularly undertakes demand modelling for retirement accommodation – across both the independent and cared accommodation sector. The analysis looks at population growth in the seniors-aged demographic of the potential catchment area of a potential site and applies the relevant penetration rate to this group to determine demand. This is then compared against the supply pipeline to estimate the future demand/supply balance and help determine the viability of retirement accommodation at the proposed site. 

Economic Impact of Reducing Stamp Duty on New Dwellings 

BIS Oxford Economics was commissioned to undertake an evaluation of the impact of reducing or removing stamp duty on new dwellings in New South Wales. We analysed prevailing market conditions for housing construction, involving an evaluation of supply and demand for new housing in the state, with a focus on the implications for housing activity and rental costs. We compared the proposal with the objectives of the Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney, then assessed the impact of removing stamp duty by estimating the potential market stimulus in terms of new dwellings. 

Demand Outlook for Holiday and Park Accommodation Services

BIS Oxford Economics was engaged by a property funds manager to prepare a report on the sector in which it operates, its drivers and outlook for the purpose of raising capital from investors. The report provides an overview of the industry and the key user groups that underpin the demand for services within the industry.
