The Australian Housing Market Report is your guide to the current home value trends in Australia. You’ll find information about what’s happened over the last 12 months (up until April 2015), as well as NAB’s expectations of where prices are headed in the near future. 

Nationally, house prices are tipped to grow 2.1% in the House Price Expectations (%) next 12 months according to the March quarter 2015 NAB Residential Property Survey. While expectations for national house prices have strengthened the picture remains quite mixed across states. Expectations for house price growth over the next 12 months have improved in NSW (3.3%) and QLD (3.3%). Expectations were scaled back in VIC, but remain positive (1.3%). House prices are expected to fall in SA/NT (-0.4%) and remain flat in WA.
