Capital city prices continue dominance over regionals

City brokers have enjoyed substantially larger loan values than their country cousins during the past year, if new data is any guide.

South Australian prices grew 5.1 per cent to $426,000 in the city and 1.8 per cent to $290,000 in the country.

Tasmanian prices increased 3.0 per cent to $360,000 in the city and remained flat at $252,000 in the country.

In Western Australia, the median metropolitan house price climbed 3.8 per cent to $550,000, while the median country house price climbed 1.3 per cent to $385,000.
