Perth was the only capital not to see gains, with their value decline over the quarter now approaching Darwin after the Northern Territory capital saw a 0.3 per cent dwelling value increase over October.

Darwin's slight increase was led by houses, up 0.7 per cent. Perth's median dwelling value has now slipped behind Adelaide.
