When is the best time to buy a house?
The best time for buying a house in Australia may be before you retire, experts say.
In a bid to keep up with the market, the latest Australian Financial Report on home buying shows that the average price of a detached house in 2016 was $1.45 million.
“This is very well above the average cost of the detached house of $1 million in 2017,” says the report.
“This reflects the higher price of new homes in 2016, which may be offset by lower prices for existing homes.
It also was the fourth-highest year on record, up from $2 million in 2016.””
For new homes, the average sale price of $2.4 million was the highest in the last three years.
It also was the fourth-highest year on record, up from $2 million in 2016.”

The report says that many buyers who have bought their first home in the past five years will be able to buy another property in their next 10 years if they stay in the market longer.
This may include the prospect of being able to get a bigger mortgage, or get a second mortgage if they want to stay longer.
“For the most part, people are now starting to come out of the market a bit earlier, and that will be a good thing for property buyers,” Mr Kaldas said.
A number of Australian cities have been in a housing affordability crisis for a while.
