The proportion of loss-making resales trended lower and was recorded at 9.6% over the March 2015 quarter, down from 10.3% the previous quarter and 10.9% a year earlier, the report found.
Not surprisingly the Brisbane City Council area has the highest proportion of profit making sales with only 5.5% of properties being resold at less than the original purchase price.
This puts Brisbane city ahead of the national average with 9.1% of all Australian home resales and 6.2% of the combined capital cities’ resales recording a gross loss.
