    The value of Australian housing has reached $10 trillion for the first time since June 2022. This increase is due to higher home values and an increase in the number of properties. Despite a cost of living crisis and low consumer sentiment, housing values have continued to rise. Factors contributing to this include net overseas migration, the use of savings and equity for purchases, and constrained supply. However, the housing market outlook remains uncertain, with borrowing constraints and potential economic downturns posing risks.
