Property prices have now risen in consecutive months

Australian property prices look to be trending upwards again, judging by the latest data from CoreLogic.

After the national median price fell 9.1% between May 2022 and February 2023, it has since risen in consecutive months – by 0.6% in March and 0.5% in April.

“Not only are we seeing housing values stabilising or rising across most areas of the country, a number of other indicators are confirming the positive shift,” CoreLogic’s research director, Tim Lawless, said.

“Auction clearance rates are holding slightly above the long run average, sentiment has lifted and home sales are trending around the previous five-year average,” he said.

Mr Lawless said it was notable this housing turnaround was occurring despite interest rates remaining elevated.

“The last time we saw housing values trending higher through a rising interest rate environment was during the mid-to-late 2000s when the mining boom was underway. This period was also characterised by surging net overseas migration that contributed significantly to housing demand,” he said.
