Over the 12 months to November 2018, turnover of national housing stock was recorded at 4.6%. Over the nine years shown on the chart it was the lowest turnover of stock and was down from 5.3% the previous year. Turnover has been trending lower since it was recorded at 6.3% in mid-2015.

As credit availability has continually tightened over recent years, transaction volumes in the housing market has fallen leading to a reduction in turnover.

CoreLogic’s turnover metric shows the percentage of properties that have sold on an annual basis by comparing the annual number of sales to the number of dwellings in a market. Keep in mind that this metric only includes settled sales which are subject to revision as off-the-plan properties settle over the coming years however, the revision in sales will also result in a revision in the count of dwellings so the change in both cancel each other out.

The share of housing stock which turns-over each year in Perth and regional WA has been very low for a number of years. This is due to the ongoing weak economy (and housing market) which is resulting in very low sales volumes. Over the past year, 4.0% of housing stock in Perth and 3.9% of housing stock in regional WA turned-over. By comparison, a year ago turnover was greater in Perth (4.2%) but slightly lower in regional WA (3.8%).

In regional Tas, turnover was steady between November 2017 and 2018 at 6.3% however, it has fallen slightly over recent months.

Turnover in Canberra is unchanged over the past year at 4.8%. Although the measure is the same, turnover has fallen over recent months from 5.0% in July and August of this year.

annual turnover, canberra
The data shows a clear declining trend in housing turnover across most geographies. This is being driven by a number of factors with the main factors: worsening affordability (particularly in Sydney and Melbourne) and the ongoing tightening of credit conditions. While affordability and credit conditions have worsened, the volume of stock for sale has actually increased with ample stock for sale to encourage turnover but credit access is crimping turnover. With credit conditions expected to remain tight over the coming months, the expectation is for fewer sales transactions and an ongoing fall in housing turnover.
