May Housing Market Update

June 5, 2018
| Christine Bode

Core Logic has released their newest housing market update for May 2018 which reveals the lower priced end of the market showing better conditions than the higher priced properties.

This is likely the result of more first home buyers as well as affordability barriers preventing activity across the higher price points.

Generally, we are seeing growth conditions showing a mild pick up across regional markets, while the capital markets ease.
