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.

According to CoreLogic RP Data statistics, capital city house prices throughout Australia grew about twice as fast as regional prices during the 12 months to 31 March 2015.

NSW recorded the greatest disparity, with the median metropolitan house price rising 13.4 per cent to $800,000 as the median country house price rose 5.6 per cent to $385,000.
