The median unit price in Brisbane dropped 5.5 percent over the June quarter to $375,000.

Annually, unit prices are down 4.9 percent, the latest Domain State of the Market Report calculates.

Domain Group chief economist Andrew Wilson not at 3.1 percent annual house price growth is still positive, but this is the slowest growth rate recorded since 2013.

The drop of 5.5 per cent is the steepest fall in unit prices since the December 2000 quarter - and is predicted to continue as supply continues to outweigh demand.

In the Greater Brisbane area, which includes the local government areas of Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redland City and Logan, house prices fell 0.1 per cent
