‘Lorne – Market Round up’. According to the recent post by R.P Data dwelling values across the country contracted – 0.5% over the month of April after posting a solid 2.5% gain over the first three months of 2013.

Based on the April R.P Data Rismark Home value index, capital city dwelling values recorded their first month on month decline since December, posting a -0.5% fall across the combined capital cities index.

The April decline in dwelling values partly reverses the growth seen over the first quarter of the year where capital city dwellings rose by 2.8 per cent.

The positive is that according to R.P Data’s director of research, Tim Lawles, the April results represent more of a stumble along the path to recovery than a sign of a renewed trend in value falls.
