Across the country, median prices fell by 0.5 percent in April, while experts expected this to flatten and rise again in July.

Macquarie Bank attributed this to the election result, expected interest rate cuts and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, which solved the loan restrictions.

& # 39; With the unexpected coalition victory, APRA's policy change and an expected fall in the Reserve Bank rate in June, we are more confident that house prices in Australia may rise within a few months, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; This should work towards a better growth of home financing and building approvals. & # 39;

AMST Capital chief economist Shane Oliver predicted that the same factors, along with Mr. Morrison's first home buyer policy, would prevent greater price falls.

& # 39; The combination of removing the threat to property taxes, previous interest rate cuts, financial assistance for home buyers and APRA lowering its seven percent interest test indicates that house prices are falling earlier and higher than we expected, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; We now expect house prices in the capital to fall on average by 12 percent – of which they have already done 10 percent – instead of 15 percent and later in the year. & # 39;

Australian interest rates have reached a record level of 1.5 percent since 2016, but it is expected that interest rates will rise to even more unknown levels.

The fall in house prices has flattened since the largest month in January, which historically means that prices will rise again about seven months later.

Labor promised to limit the negative gearing to new homes and halve the tax reduction for capital gains from 50% to 25%.

Trailed real estate categories to claim this would lead to investors withdrawing from the market and keeping prices in free fall.

It was generally expected that the ALP would win, resulting in the rush to buy houses after the party's shock loss.
