Melbourne property downturn over: Median house prices rise for the first time in 18 months…

by | Jul 29, 2019 | property

Finally, the biggest downturn in Melbourne property prices since the 1980s looks to be at an end!

Melbourne’s median house price rose by 0.3 per cent in the June quarter, the first rise since December 2017. The median house price is now $818,200, which is 10 per cent below the peak reached in late 2017.

Melbourne’s median unit price increased by 2 per cent in the June quarter, the median unit price is now $501,000, which is 2 per cent below the 2018 peak.

House and unit prices are 49 per cent and 20 per cent higher than they were in 2013.

Melbourne’s most expensive areas have seen the biggest house price falls. Houses in Melbourne’s inner-east and inner-south regions have fallen 16 per cent and 13 per cent respectively over the past year, whereas house prices were unchanged in Melbourne’s west and north-west regions.

However, there are signs that prices in expensive areas are rebounding fastest. Notably, auction clearance rates in Melbourne’s most expensive regions in recent weeks are the strongest of all city regions. Melbourne’s more expensive regions tend to lead the overall market, so this is another sign that the Melbourne market may be nearing the bottom.

Other indicators also point to a turnaround. More buyers are attending open for inspections, sentiment has improved and auction clearance rates are at the highest point since November 2017.

House prices increased in Ballarat and Bendigo by 11 per cent and 5 per cent respectively over the past 12 months. House price growth has slowed in Geelong, with prices up only one per cent over the year.
