NT Excerpt from the 2020 September Market report

23 Sep 2020

Property sentiment in Darwin is strong, with many agents reporting increasing numbers of potential purchasers, said Will Johnson, Northern Territory local expert at HTW.

"The volume of sales appears to be increasing, although pricing remains static. This can be attributed to several factors, one being Darwin is considered quite close if not at the bottom of the property price cycle," he said.

While the medium- to long-term impacts of the robust market activity on capital growth remain to be seen, Johnson said Darwin is expecting to finish the year strong.

Darwin and the whole Northern Territory have been less affected by the COVID-19 outbreak compared to other southern states, Johnson said. Still, the state's local economy has suffered considerably due to the slowdown in the tourism sector.

Despite the uncertainty, Darwin remains a top spot, especially for local investors due to its strong rental returns.

"Looking to the short and medium term, Darwin still provides opportunities for investors to put their money in property. Whilst capital growth may be some time in the future, recent signs of strong purchasing activity are positive signs," Johnson said.
