was the only capital city where the median price fell for both houses and other dwellings due to slowing population growth and decreasing market activity.”
Sydney continues to lead the country in terms of median property prices, which now sit at 46.5% above the national average. Adelaide
also recorded relatively strong growth.
On the other hand, median rents across the majority of capital cities weakened.
“With Perth and Darwin
having the highest vacancy rates, median rents in these cities fell markedly compared to 12 months ago. Rental markets in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Hobart appear to be balanced based on their vacancy rates at around the industry benchmark of 3%,” said Sanders.
