In Greater Brisbane, the median unit price fell 8.6% over the year to June, according to the report.

The capital city’s unit prices are “sitting at 2013 levels”—down from their peak in 2015, according to Domain research analyst Eliza Owen.

However, prices are expected to bottom out this year, with the end of the downturn in the unit segment in sight, Owen said.

“Unit listings are also moderating, which should reduce downward pressure on prices,” she said.
