Red Hot Real Estate Industry is Good News for Your Career

In terms of GDP growth, Australia has one of the largest economies in the world. According to a report by the World Bank, Australia’s GDP was 37828.25 US dollars in 2014 per capita. In actual fact, the per-capita GDP is higher than a number of economic powerhouses including Germany, the UK and France. A report from 2014-2015 indicated that Australia ranks 9th in per-capita income.

Rising Real Estate
Because of low unemployment rates, high labour costs, low interest rates and strong social security, Australian people have the wealth and flexibility from their banks to buy property relatively easily. A report recently published by the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) suggests that housing affordability has improved slightly in 2014.The proportion of income required to meet loan repayments has decreased 0.2 percentage points to 30.6% over the quarter according to that report. This scenario is true for New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory as well.

Buying Home
The President of the REIA Mr Peter Bushboy said that "The ACT remained the most affordable state or territory in which to buy a home with the proportion of income required to meet loan repayments sitting at 19.8% while New South Wales remained the least affordable state or territory in which to buy a home with the proportion of income required to meet loan repayments 4.0 percentage points above the national average”. However he mentioned that compared to a year ago, housing affordability is continually improving in all states and territories. In conclusion he said that "With budget forecasts of moderate growth and inflation well within the RBA’s target zone, interest rates should remain low for some time and that is good news for home owners and prospective buyers".

Australia is a famous destination for skilled workers all over the world. So there is no doubt that real estate business will continue to grow as the economy improves. This is encouraging news for young people who want to build a career in the real estate business. The value of education for real estate will play a major role in helping people get jobs in the field.
