Those who believed the market is more vulnerable to a correction are becoming more cautious.

Higher numbers of respondents from Sydney  felt a market downturn was possible, which the survey noted may be attributed to the high rate of capital gain over recent years causing some concern about an over valuation in the Sydney market place.

Perth residents were overly optimistic about the state of the market since the peak of the resources boom and those in the Northern Territory and regional Western Australia the most pessimistic.
