Sales numbers dropped significantly in Darwin which only had two growth suburbs.
The total sales in the June 16 quarter were the lowest in the past five years and less than half those peak levels of 2014.
The report also revealed that Tasmanian markets were strong with Hobart’s momentum rising, as was Launceston and Devonport.
Sales activity picked up in Tasmania last year and maintained highly consistent sales levels throughout 2015,’ the report says.
The June quarter was Tasmania’s strongest quarter for sales for at least five years.
There have been areas in Adelaide that have seen double digit growth in average prices in last year. Now with the number of suburbs with rising housing markets it is the number one city in Australia for growth.
Sydney and Brisbane now have ‘danger markets’, particularly with apartments, where there has been a big fall in the number of sales.
Hobart is doing well, the Tasmanian economy has improved and investors are looking at Hobart and seeing it has the cheapest prices, lowest vacancies and the highest rental yields among the capital cities.
