Hi again,

Just thought we would give you an update on the Tasmanian real estate market at this time.

The Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) has released new data showing recent modest price growth in most of the nation’s capital city property markets.

In the December quarter Real Estate Market Facts report from REIA, most capital cities recorded increases in their median house prices, which are now up 0.7 per cent on-quarter to $522,696.

Most importantly for you, The biggest jump came from Hobart, which increased by 5.8 per cent, although Hobart still has the lowest overall median price of the capitals.

“Despite the increase being small, the December quarter improvement is the best improvement recorded during the year,” the president of the REIA, Pamela Bennett, said.

Sydney’s median prices, although unchanged, remain the nation’s highest at $636,822.

For an expert analysis of the Tasmanian real estate market we suggest you read this blog post.

So perhaps the tide has turned in at least the Hobart property market. Overall it is still a buyers market but we believe it is an excellent time to start finding that right property.
