Property BOOM: Australian Housing Values Rising At Fastest Rate In 17 Years

New data from property research firm CoreLogic shows Australian home values have risen by 2.1 per cent in the month of February. This reflects the largest month-on-month increase in CoreLogic’s national home value index since August 2013. The median property price for the country as a whole is now $598,884.

“Housing values are rising across each of the capital cities and the rest of the state regions, demonstrating the diverse nature of this housing upswing”, says CoreLogic’s research director, Tim Lawless.

“Spurred on by a combination of record-low mortgage rates, improving economic conditions, government incentives and low advertised supply levels, Australia’s market is in the midst of a broad-based boom”, CoreLogic notes in its release.

Sydney’s home value rose to 2.5 per cent in February to a median of $895,933. Hobart also led the uptick with 2.5 per cent to a median of $535,994. Melbourne’s rose to 2.1 per cent to a median of $717,767.

Lawless also predicts it won’t be long until both cities eclipse record highs set in 2017.

“Both cities are still recording values below their earlier peaks, however at this current rate of appreciation it won’t be long before Australia’s two most expensive capital city markets are moving through new record highs.”
