Buyer's Market says RP Data

"The survey was conducted across 1,030 respondents who were located across the capital city and ‘rest of state’ regions around the country.  The headline findings showed 80% of Australians think it’s a good time to buy a home but only 37% think it’s a good time to sell.  The results suggest, at least from a consumer perspective, that housing remains a buyers market."

"There has been clear evidence of weaker housing market conditions over the second quarter of 2013. The housing market is highly seasonal and we anticipated a slowing of conditions over the current period however, it is likely that the magnitude of the slowdown and subsequent value falls has been heightened by falling consumer sentiment. Should this continue, it is reasonable to anticipate a less active housing market where value growth is lower than when confidence was much more buoyant."
