National Housing Market Update - May 2020

Corelogic has released its National Housing Market Update for May 2020.

Key points:

  • Data to May shows that combined capital cities are about to decline

  • The top quartile of the Melbourne market has begun leading the downturn registering a 0.8% monthly reduction in value

  • Property sales volume is 40% lower than the previous month

  • Inner-city rental markets have seen a significant uplift in rent listings off the back of falling demand, and increased supply, amid COVID-19

  • By April, all markets saw an annual decline in vendor discounting. But as the market turns, vendor discounts are likely to become larger

  • Investor participation continues to decline. First Homebuyer participation at its highest since 2012
