I know, tell me about it....... one day its up, one day its down.. then again, the ABS statistics is lagged, this report is based up until June 2006. The 42% drop is was last weekend.

Just like the US there are are wide regional variations in price changes. Sydney is slightly down/flat and Perth has rocketed, probably because it's a mining town. The 42% figure was for a single house in, what I'm told, was a pretty cr4ppy suburb of Sydney anyway. (Dare I mention location, location, location?)

Here is a link to the original report -

The journo isn't wrong, they're merely cherrypicking the paper-selling facts.

I suppose you could generalise massively and get to an average fall of about 15-20%.

If this happens within a year I'd call it a sharp correction - or at least the beginnings of a crash...
