Australian Property Clock, August 2015

This month’s property clock from Herron Todd White Valuers shows Brisbane in a stable rising market, while Sydney is well into the peak. The variation of position of different regional areas is one reason why those regulating financial and monetary policy are restricted in what they can do – stimulation would be bad for constraining Sydney house prices, and interest rate rises would be bad for most of the rest of the country.
