RP Data is reporting that in the last year, four in five property sales have been below $600,000, and almost half of all sales were less than $400,000.
"Across most regions at least 30 per cent of home sales over the past year have been at prices below $400,000, highlighting thereremains opportunities for price sensitive purchasers," said RP Research analyst Cameron Kusher.
Properties sold for $200,000 to $400,000 accounted for 41.2 per cent of sales in the last 12 months, with sales between $400,000 and $600,000 representing 30.4 per cent.
Sales under $200,000 were 7.1 per cent, outstripping the high end of the market, where only 5.4 per cent or properties sold for more than $1 million.
