Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Operators in the Real Estate Services industry have reaped the benefits of a booming residential property market over the past five years. Despite turbulent economic conditions, housing prices have grown strongly, supported by government incentives at the beginning of the period and then fuelled by decreasing interest rates. In contrast, the commercial property market has performed modestly due to volatile business confidence and subdued economic conditions. Industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 4.2% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $14.3 billion. Industry revenue is expected to contract by 0.2% in 2016-17, with an anticipated reduction in housing transfers likely to decrease industry activity and earnings.

Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The industry has low barriers to entry. Initial capital outlays are low and there is no need to hire staff for a small business. The largest barrier to entry is lack of reputation and presence. There is significant competition in the industry, and it is imperative to develop a referral base and centres of influence to build a critical mass of customers and sales.

Geographical boundaries may also represent a barrier to entry. Prospective buyers of properties tend to concentrate their search within a localised area. Established firms can have expertise within defined areas. A small number of firms generally cater for these local markets, which can be difficult for a new entrant to penetrate.
