House prices have fallen, but these suburbs are resisting the trend

While Australian homeowners may be a little nervous after hearing real estate prices for the first time in 20 months, buyers will sit back and take notes.

According to two leading monthly indices – CoreLogic and REA’s PropTrack – the nationwide monthly decline is approximately 0.1 percent.

Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra lead falls while Adelaide, Brisbane and some regional areas continue to show sharp price increases.

The coin always has two sides

Just as homeowners may perceive the latest news about home prices as negative, buyers may feel some long-forgotten optimism about returning to the market.

Likewise, middle prices do not tell the whole story. Median values ​​do not necessarily mean that all houses in a particularly favorable growth area will rise in price.

These statistics provide an overview of properties that have been sold in a given time period.

Ultimately, the value of your house will be determined by how much the buyer would pay for it.
