Bi Monthly Market Update | March sees Perth sales hit a 12 year high!!!

By Katy O'Shea

March sees Perth sales hit a 12 year high!!!

  • As expected, the RBA left the cash rate on hold whilst being very positive about  the employment rate, which is trending to below 4%. Now watch carefully for the March quarter inflation numbers and May wage cost data coming soon.
  • With the Federal Election looking like mid to late May, June is firming as the date most economists predict the RBA to raise rates.
  • The S&P ASX 200 closed at 7527.9 and the Aussie dollar is near a 10 month high at $US .76 c.
  • Alan Kohler showed another really cool chart on Monday – he compared the ratio of house prices to income over the last 40 years for ‘Australia’ against the ‘rest of the world’. Australian house prices have more than doubled as a percentage of income over the last 40 years.
  • Top-end prices on the East Coast are leading that recent market downturn with suburbs such as Surrey Hills down 6% and South Yarra down 5% in the last quarter.
  • Perth sales volumes reached the highest level in 12 years during March. REIWA stats show an average of 1078 sales/week.
  • Perth prices grew 1.9% in the first three months of the year and we remain the most affordable housing market in the country.
  • Call me now to see if your home is the perfect match for those East Coast buyers just working this out.
