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…

RPData’s home price index confirms the strength of the market, showing with daily, quarterly and year on year prices higher in all reported capital cities
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.
