Chances are if you've been kicking around old HHV's blog for the past 12 or 18 months, you'd have saved enough to get your hands on this beautiful German girl without doing anything at all.
How's that go HHV? We thought you would have given up smoking the BC when you left for greener and sunnier pastures just 7 short months ago?
Simple I say! If you didn't buy a Victoria median house last January, you would have saved yourself a cool $51,000, about enough to get yourself a BMW 3 series with a whistle and still have a $1000 to impress the ladies with! Sheeeet.
Median SFH prices fell $51,000 between January 2011 and January 2012. Average prices dropped from $597K to $567K - though the average is far less indicative of the market than the median.
Speaking of indicative of the market, did anyone else notice VREB's fancy schmancy new way of reporting the numbers. Now it could be coincidence, seeing as that it is the first reporting month of a new year and all, but the cynic in me would rather explain it as confusing on purpose. Switch up how you report your sales data and no one will know that prices fell almost 9% over the past 12 months.
Presto Chango! Whackadoo!
