HIA senior economist Shane Garrett said the current market is quite polarised in terms of dwelling price growth.

"Two of the eight capital cities have seen prices drop over the past year, while two are experiencing growth at double-digit rates," he said.

"Tellingly, no capital city currently lies in the ‘middle groundprice growth band of between 5% and 10%.

 

"With respect to dwelling price growth, the situation in Australia is currently quite unique, with a significant gap between the high growth markets (Sydney and Melbourne) and those cities experiencing falling prices."
