The amount of stock on the market declined in all capital cities in April compared with March, according to SQM Research. Of course, the month of April contained the Easter long weekend, Anzac Day and school holidays.

The biggest decrease in stock on market was in Sydney, which recorded a 12.1% decrease month on month. 

"It is becoming more evident that the number of real estate listings has reached its peak," says SQM managing director Louis Christopher.

But Christopher warns that just because stock levels have peaked, it does not mean that prices are rebounding.

“Now while stock levels maybe be peaking, that doesn’t mean prices have suddenly stopped falling," Christopher says.

"As the ABS data illustrates, house prices were falling in the March quarter and we think they are still falling as we speak. I’d like to see a sustained decline in stock levels before calling a real bottom in prices. But overall, the worst now is likely behind us with this current downturn.”
