Property valuers place most mainland capitals at the bottom of the property cycle clock

02 July 2019

Analysis from a large Australian property valuation company shows our major mainland capital cities are at the bottom of their price cycle after a lengthy period of low clearance rates, price drops and falling confidence.

Valuation company Herron Todd White says Melbourne, Perth and Darwin are sitting right at the bottom of the property cycle and Sydney is not far behind.

Despite being valued at the bottom of their price cycles and home loan rate cuts the analysis shows there’s no guarantees of price rebounds in our capital cities in the near-to-short term.

Herron Todd White have published a national property clock for July this year showing where major cities and towns around Australia are sitting in relation to their house price cycle.
