Market Overview - Median Suburb Prices and RP Data Report


There has been a lot of market activity this spring.

Volumes of new listings year on year are up and overall volume of listings is down, suggesting what is coming onto the market is selling and older listings are as well. However the Victorian auction success rates have been hovering just slightly under that of last year, though in and around the inner city the auction success rates are up on the state average which is certainly reflective of what we have seen in the market place.

A few days ago, Corelogic RP Data released their October Quater report. It’s a detailed read but we have pulled out the stats relevant to the Melbourne Market. The link to the full report is below.
