Despite a general state-wide trend of low supply in Tasmania, the suburb of Chigwell recorded a significant increase in stock on market.

Real Estate Investar noted that the number of houses in the area increased from 10 to 18 over a 12-month period. This may have been a response to the needs of the house market in Hobart as demand increases with property affordability and a strengthening local economy. By contrast, unit supply was consistent.

CoreLogic points out that the new housing stock has caused prices in Chigwell to drop slightly, pulling the median house price to $206,000. Nonetheless, this may turn out to be a benefit for investors – the low price is coupled with a remarkably high yield of nearly 8%, which should allow them to turn a profit. Moreover, Chigwell is just a 20-minute drive from the Hobart CBD. As a result, the average vacancy rate is a very low 1.25%, indicating that demand is strong
