Alpha Real Estate Market Outlook

In Alpha there has been a history of lower than average prices and demand, offering opportunities for investors or first home owners, especially in the context of the growth in working from home. Low average incomes in Alpha is reflected in smaller and lower quality accommodation. Over time this may change providsing long-term returns but in the short to medium term, prices are likely to be less than state averages. The slightly lower than average earnings from occupations in Alpha changes the housing and lifestyle preference. It is more a matter of what can be afforded rather than what would we prefer, leading to slower price increases over time. Medium density in Alpha necessitates a mix of lifestyle options for housing, shops, open areas, and facilties. Where this is available, demand is high and growth ensured. Lower than average industry presence in Alpha we believe will be less of a negative impact than it has in the past. Post-COVID and the growth in working from home has lessened the demand for local employment options. This may make Alpha a better buying opportunity than it may have been in the past.
