This month's issue of SA Stats shows the house price index for established houses in Adelaide rose 0.4% in the June quarter 2008. However, the percentage increase for the year (from June 2007 to June 2008) for Adelaide (16.2%) was the largest of all Australian capital cities.

The average home loan commitment for owner occupied dwellings in South Australia in June 2008 was $193,100, showing little change from June 2007 ($193,500). Between June 2007 and June 2008, the average loan size for first home buyers has increased 9.6% (from $207,300 to $209,300). Over the same period, the average loan size for non-first home buyers has decreased 1.1% (from $192,500 to $190,300).
