From an REIQ press release yesterday concerning houses (not apartments):
"The numbers of house sales across Queensland peaked at the end of last year as well as recorded healthy price growth, according to the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ).
The REIQ December quarter median house price report, released today, found that the volume of house sales hit its annual peak of activity in the last three months of 2013. The numbers of sales was also one of the healthiest quarterly periods for a number of years.
REIQ CEO Anton Kardash said not only could the December quarter claim to be the third strongest in as many years, it was also firming without the aid of extraneous stimulus measures."
