Auction clearance rates have remained above 70% for most weeks since mid-September and median selling time has continued its falling trend over the last quarter.
House prices in Melbourne rose by 2.3% in October and by a total of 5.5% over the three months to October.
New research by CoreLogic also suggests that Melbourne’s property market is on track to make a full recovery from the downturn and reach record high prices by the start of next year.
According to Tim Lawless, Head of Research at CoreLogic, ‘values only have to rise a further 5.8 per cent before staging a recovery’.
