Perth leads house price recovery

Perth's housing market looks set for a strong recovery in 2013, with the median home price reaching a two-year high.

The RP Data-Rismark daily home value index for Australia's five largest capital cities was up 1.7 per cent compared to a year ago, with the median price of Perth homes up three per cent over the same period.

Interesting term used in the opening sentence, 'strong recovery'. Recovery from what? Perth housing has hardly been in the doldrums rather there was a slight correction over the last year in an inflated market.

Our young folk will have even less chance of actually owning a home as prices lift further beyond reach. They will have to wait to inherit their parent's house, which is a sad state of affairs. A stable population would stop this madness. Rising house prices don't make the country richer over all.
