I hope they are going down but they seem to be selling very quickly in my area of inner brisbane at the moment.

I've generally found when agents put in a sold range it sold for the exact midpoint so in your case it would be $420k

Interesting article ...

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/15/bu...15housing.html

“When people can no longer handle the debt, or when the debt stops growing, prices will come down, and we will face the same deleveraging crisis as in America,” said Mr. Keen. “But the last thing you can say in Australia is that house prices will fall. It’s like saying Jesus is Hindu.”

but that's got to dry up, we'll be fresh migrants granted but won't be buying!

£'s will be staying in UK until something better on the exchange rate front.

% of migrants planning to come will either not come, postpone or do same as us and rent, so that pool of buyers will become like a Sydney water reservoir!!
