Herron Todd White have released their April property clock, and there has been little movement in the residential sector.
Broome and Canberra were the only locations to change their position on the clock in terms of residential housing values, with both regions moving to ‘rising market’.
There were also few changes to the property clock for the residential unit market last month, with the biggest shift being Canberra moving to a declining market.
Toowoomba units shifted to ‘start of recovery’ and Emerald is now classified as a ‘rising market’.
