March 2010 Index Data
The RP Data – Rismark March Hedonic Home Value Index results released yesterday reveals that home values in Australia’s capital cities rose by 1.4 per cent in March (and +1.1 per cent on a “seasonally adjusted” basis) following on from similarly strong 1.7 per cent and 1.1 per cent growth rates across Australia in the months of January and February, respectively. In the 12 months to end March, Australian capital city home values have increased by 12.5 per cent.
Rpdata.com Director of Research, Tim Lawless, stated “We expect capital growth rates to cool in 2010 as the cost of mortgage finance is normalised by the RBA. Over the longer-term home values should be expected to track disposable incomes.”
