The chart has RP Data tracking house prices to September 26.

It shows that Sydney dwelling prices are up a "stunning" 3.4% since June 1 while Australia-wide dwelling prices have surged 2.7% in the last four months.

"But the biggest winner is Melbourne," says Joye on his Aussie Macro Moments blog. "Melbourne dwelling prices are up an amazing 3.8% since 1 June. And, yes, I am afraid Steve Keen got it wrong again: Aussie house prices have officially risen in 2012!"
