Latest stats show another strong week in property

Let’s look at some of last week’s property market stats…

We’ve experienced another strong week in our real estate markets around Australia, even though we may be in for a little breather consider asking prices are falling according to SQM.

Firstly… this weekend’s auction clearance results remain high, much higher than last year…

Vendor Asking Prices

But according to SQM Research vendors asking prices are slipping a little in all our cities.

This may mean that the frenetic rise in property prices may slow for a while and catch their breath.

Of course this is not a bad thing. The current rate of price growth – up to $1,000 a week in some cities, is unsustainable.
