End may be near for housing boom

Property price growth has started to look very modest throughout Australia, with the notable exception of Sydney.

New CoreLogic RP Data statistics have revealed that the median price in Australia’s eight capital cities grew by an average of 3.1 per cent during the 12 months to 31 March 2015.

However, the average growth rate was only 1.5 per cent once Sydney was excluded.
