By Murtaza Bagasrawala

Every month, the CoreLogic Research team compiles a comprehensive Housing Chart Pack, encompassing the most up-to-date statistics, facts, and figures regarding the residential property market. This includes valuable insights on the collective worth of residential real estate, sales volumes, and the prevailing trend in new listings.

  • The combined capital cities dwelling market value rose 0.7% in the month of April, following a 0.8% lift in March. This takes dwelling values 1.4% higher from a trough in February this year.
  • The high end of the Sydney housing market is currently leading capital growth, up 4.0% for the three months to April.
  • The number of sales trended seasonally lower through April, with CoreLogic estimating 35,398 sales in the month nationally. However, sales are fairly on-par with what is typically observed this time of year.

  • In the four weeks to 7 May 2023, the volume of new listings totalled 31,356 nationally. New listings have seen a slight uptick following a string of public holidays, but are likely to trend seasonally lower through the cooler months of the year.
  • The combined capital cities clearance rate averaged 65.2% in the four weeks ending 30 April 2023. While this was a much stronger result than in the final weeks of 2022 (averaging 55.1%), the combined clearance rate average did drop slightly on the previous four-week period (65.4%).
  • Annual growth in rent values held steady on the previous month, at 10.1%. Across the combined capital cities, rent values rose 11.7% in the past 12 months, which was the highest annual increase on record.

  • New housing finance secured totaled $24.0 billion in March, posting a strong monthly increase of 4.9% nationally. This is the first monthly rise since January last year, and follows more positive data flows on home values and sales volumes through March.
  • The value of first home buyer finance rose 12.3% through March. First home buyer finance accounted for 24.7% of owner-occupier finance in the month, which is above the decade average of 23.7%.
