This week’s episode Terry highlights the recent misleading media headlines and stories around monthly housing price indexes released by Core Logic. 

 

In this episode he covers:

  • The problem with stand-alone monthly housing price index figures
  • Analysis of recent Core Logic data released and media reaction in Melbourne and Adelaide
  • Why month-to-month changes are misleading and irrelevant
  • Examples of the reported monthly data compared to longer term trends
  • Why you need to take a long-term view, looking at quarterly and annual changes to determine the underlying noise in a market
  • The media and commentator’s over-reaction to the latest dwelling approvals in Victoria from the Australian Bureau of Statistics
  • Why consumers need to be ignoring the grandstanding of media outlets who are desperately trying to attract attention
