    What do you think is this going to be like this for some more months or sooner the trend will go the other way ?

    The slowdown in house price growth began prior to the slowdown in employment growth.

    Australia is so huge that the left side is totally different from the right side and the top wouldn't recognise the bottom. I can't see how cumulative stats apply here.

    Two other markets at risk are Australia and New Zealand. Both have benefited from higher commodity prices and have seen increases in construction-related employment. Their central banks have responded by tightening monetary policy; the last time rates were cut in either country was more than four years ago.
    Since 1997 house prices have risen faster in Australia than New Zealand, but Goldman reckons that the latter is more vulnerable. Real house prices are 82% higher than they were in the last quarter of 1999, and have risen by 70% relative to household income, the biggest increase in all the countries Goldman has surveyed.
    If house-price weakness does spread more widely, there may be important economic consequences. There is plenty of debate about the size of the “wealth effect?? of higher property prices on consumer demand. But it will hardly help that fuel and food prices are soaring at the very moment when the value of bricks and mortar looks about to sag.

    Where are you getting your information from Stacy - as it's grossly incorrect. Just do a search on rate cut NZ and you'll see what you've presented is out of date.

    cheers,
