Melbourne house prices will soon be growing at double-digit rates!

Sydney and Melbourne house prices will be growing at more than 12 per cent per annum by the middle of next year, one of the nation's largest banks has forecast as the Reserve Bank talks up the chances of the economy recovering in 2020.
