The PropTrack Listings Report June 2022 found new listings dropped by 3.1% nationally in June.

Despite this, new listings were up 8.5% year-on-year across the country, making it the busiest June for new listings since 2011.   

Almost all capital cities, apart from Darwin, experienced an increase in new listings compared to the same time last year.

In regional areas, new listings picked up in June rising by 2.5% to be 12.9% higher than last year.

Angus Moore, PropTrack economist and report author, said property markets across the nation experienced a boom in new listings to what is usually a slower period.  

“The property market has had a strong first half of 2022. There has been a brisk pace of new listings, with more new listings nationally across the first half of the year than during any year since 2015,” Mr Moore said.

“While conditions are likely to slow a little as we continue through the typically quieter winter period, activity has remained robust in many markets.

“Though selling conditions broadly have begun to temper after a very strong spring 2021 and early 2022, fundamental drivers of demand remain strong, with unemployment low, wages growth expected to pick up over this year, and international migration now returning.”

SQM Research data for June also shows a slight reduction in listings over the month, albeit with the number of older listings (more than 180 days) trending up. 

Nationally, listings older than 180 days were up 1.6% through the month, and most pronounced in Canberra (+14.6%).

"This reveals the slowdown in the housing market driven by lower buyer demand. Going forward we expect July to record similar trends of lacklustre activity and more rises in older listings," said Louis Christopher, SQM Research's managing director.

"At this stage we can safely state there is no panic in the market. The downturn remains orderly [and] ... vendors are adjusting their market expectations down, particularly for the Sydney housing market.

"Meanwhile cities still recording strength include Adelaide and to a lesser extent, Brisbane, and Canberra. All other cities are now showing signs of weakening."
