When was Australia’s housing market last $10T?
Throwing back to 2015, the residential real estate market was widely reported as a $6 trillion industry.
Halfway through 2022, residential real estate broke the $10 trillion mark.
Values began to decline throughout the remainder of 2022, recorded at $9.5 trillion in November 2022.
Prices began to recover as 2023 progressed, with Australia’s residential property market returning to the $10 trillion mark in September.

How does it compare to super and the stock market?
The residential sector far outweighs its commercial counterpart, which only came in at $1.3 trillion.
The stock market and superannuation also accounted for a substantially smaller figure than residential property.
Australian home values continue rising
The pace of growth slowed slightly, with the 2.2% rise in the three months to September down a touch from the 2.4% in the three months to August.
Annually, home values lifted 3.9%.
Discounts in decline
Capital city sales were 1.8% below the historic average, with 24,996 homes sold. Across the regions, 14,220 sales were recorded, trending 6.1% below the five year average.
The report also found that, at the median level, vendors are now offering less of a discount on their property.
The median vendor discount, nationally, was -3.8% in the three months to September, up from a recent low of -4.3% at the end of last year.
