    Property Marketing Outlook

    Australia’s property market remains robust both in terms of house prices and building approvals. This will support ongoing growth in all overall classified and display expenditure by home sellers and real estate agents. Median house prices in metro areas (notably Sydney $780,000 and Melbourne $585,000) are on all time highs having achieved double digit growth rates in the past 12 months. Foreign investors and low relative interest rates has fueled these trends. Likewise the the loans market is very large and continues to grow, though there has a been a shift in recent times towards higher density housing (now around 49%) relative to detached homes.

    Property marketing outlook: Rightmove tightens its grip

    This is the second of our three reports in our annual review of vertical marketplaces (classifieds), focused on property, and follows Vertical marketplaces overview and recruitment outlook [2015-115]. Zoopla Property Group (ZPG) has been hit by new entrant OnTheMarket, and has diversified its publishing and revenue models. But OnTheMarket is a red herring in the marketplace, delivering the same charging model more expensively for estate agents than leading portals Rightmove and ZPG. Property marketing expenditure has been resilient this year, and we expect it to be roughly flat (a little down in real terms) over the next two to three years, largely a result of the print-to-digital transition depressing spend, but also because estate agents are feeling squeezed. Local newspaper print decline will roughly offset increases at the property portals and elsewhere, though print spend at the top of the market – brands such as Country Life, the FT and the Telegraph – remains robust, despite deep declining volumes of £1.5m homes.
