THE value of Queensland’s housing market has smashed through the trillion dollar barrier for the first time in history.

The state’s residential property sector is now worth $1.004 trillion — hitting the milestone in September after hovering on or just below that level for months, according to exclusive figures provided to The Sunday-Mail by property research firm CoreLogic.

It’s been a rapid rise to the top, with the total value of Queensland’s housing market sitting at $910 billion only two years ago — that’s an increase of 10 per cent or more than $90 billion in just 24 months.
