Sydney and Melbourne are noticeably absent from the most recent nationwide list of the country's most discounted suburbs and have had minimal presence in recent weeks.

We think to a certain extent that this reflects SQM Research's initial forecast for 2011, that the state of Queensland is set to suffer a little more than the others, and is already showing declines on a larger scale comparatively. With three properties in the top end of our list with discounts in the percentage range of 37% to 43%, Queensland is taking the lead so to speak where the slashing of prices is concerned.

Of course this is suburb-specific, and not all areas are suffering similarly, but the regions that are being hit this year are being hit hard.
