Median Prices for Australian Property.

For many years there have been discussions on the value of property in Australia, and the rest of the world, and the most vocal comments have been the consistent statements that a property price bust will occur SOON.

I have seen these comments starting from around the year 2005, with many people saying that Australian property prices will drop by around 50%, as the values of the day could not continue.

From the information below it can be seen that the anticipated Property Value Busts have never really materialised, and property has continued to rise, especially in the Capital Cities.

Looking at the Ten year period from 2004 to 2014 we can see the following average increases:
