Home prices largest fall in 12 years

CAPITAL city home prices have posted their biggest quarterly fall in at least 12 years, as more stock in the housing market allows prospective buyers to wait for bargains, a survey shows. 

Capital city dwelling values fell by a seasonally adjusted 2.1 per cent in the first quarter of the year, according to the latest RP Data-Rismark Home Value Index.

The quarterly change was the steepest since the index series began in June 1999, RP Data research director Tim Lawless said.

Prices were flat in the month of March and down 0.6 per cent over the past 12 months, with the national city dwelling value median price at $455,000.
