Melbourne apartment the oversupply will be significant. BIS Shrapnel tips 'very messy end' to the apartment boom.

Melbourne CBD will have an excess of 22,000 homes by June next year.

The report, by Bob Birrell and David McCloskey, says Melbourne, and then Sydney, will soon see obvious signs of a market replete with surplus apartments as both cities jump to about 21,000 to 22,000 apartment completions in 2016 and 2017. In 2014 and 2015, completions totalled 13,000 to 14,000.
