The 10 most discounted properties in Australia at June 16

The list remains quite steady from last week, with a newer batch of regular properties repeatedly making the top 10 each week. It is now properties from Queensland and Western Australia that are continuing to dominate our list of slashed property prices. This is in line with our recent forecast that these states (Queensland and Western Australia) will suffer steeper falls than the others, comparatively speaking.

What is particularly noteworthy about this week's list is that we have finally been graced with the addition of a discounted property in Victoria! It has been a while since we have seen discounts from this state in our top 10, and number nine on the list, 2506/83 Queensbridge Street Southbank 3006, has been discounted by a whopping 30%. This property is apparently going to auction at a price range given of at least $500,000 less that the vendor's orginal asking price. Having said this, these types of auction advertisements can often be ambigious, as it is never known whether bidding is expected to start from the given price range or whether the vendor is hoping to acheive a sale within the given price range.
