Elliott Heads highlights how the affordability of Queensland suburbs has enabled these areas to stave off declines in the face of excessive supply.

This suburb is an example of the oversupply issue observed in the regional market, with stock on market recording a 117% rise, according to Real Estate Investar. These properties are all detached houses, thus supporting the call to halt construction approvals until established homes can be occupied.

However, despite this staggering increase in supply, the average vacancy rate inched upward by only 0.23% over a 12-month period, suggesting that demand is adequate to cover the excess for most part. This may be ascribed to the low prices of homes, low interest rates and an increased grant, which could have spurred market activity especially among first-home buyers.

House prices soared by nearly 13%, as per CoreLogic, and the high rental yield of 4.5% could also be inviting investors into the market.
