4BC Mornings: Recently released Australian property figures are sending mixed messages regarding the state of the Brisbane property market, neither confirming that it is recovering or still in the doldrums. 4BC's Real Estate expert, Kevin Turner, talks to Greg Cary to clear up the confusion.

  • Absolutley spot on post Phil, This current Labor party through association with minorities has itself now become a minority party that I believe will never again govern in its own right.
    Instead of doing deals with the minor parties at the last election they should have done a deal with the Australian people and gone back to ther polls until we had a Government that could govern in its own right because clearly this minority thing is not working.
    Let the people decide Ms Gillard. It's our country too.

  • A nations true wealth should be measured by the happiness of its people.
    Not by its GDP and corporate profits.

  • So in he latest Poll, 78% of the Australian electorate believe that the manner in which the Gillard led Athiestic Socialist Government of the Labour Party are not handling the
    Illegal Immigrant situation
    competently. Funny that eh, I'd love to know how the Poll questions were posed. Methinks that the Australian People are sick to death of the prattle espoused by the Bleeding Hearts who are forever forcing their opinions down the throat of we mere silent majority who are sick of the incompetence of Gillard and her Union backed cronies. At last the true feelings of the Australian People are known, fed up no doubt by the latest effort by Gillard to gift $400 million and 5000 Australian places at Centrelink to persons of unknown origin, not forgetting the ancillaries and infrastructure needed to keep them. Gillards and her Union backed Cabinet have shown their true colours, remembering of course that only 15% of the workforce are now Union Members. The Party of the People is no longer that, but a party being led by a woman who can only be described as a bully. Good onya Jules, you Madam are a complete and abject failure. Time to move on.

  • Whilst I own (or more precisely, the Bank owns) several properties, I don't think it is a bad thing for real estate prices to reduce or just stabilise. Real estate prices are absurd in this country, as too are the red tape costs like stamp duty, headworks contributions etc. and sadly, future generations will be generations of renters if values keep driving up. There must be better ways to generate wealth, like hard bloody work!

  • @ jackie:sorry but were already on our a$$!!!!!!The countrys already a deadman walking and I can't see any savior in plain sight!!!!!Whilst Krudd did spend the surplus like a drunken salior on a friday night and might I add was cheered on by the rest of the sniviling Grubs heading up the A.L.P as john says house prices aren't the domain of governments!!!!!!!The State government likes'em high if only to raise reveunee from stamp duty other wise I'd be looking at your local banks for the real answers!!!!!And yes I hate to say it but Johnno has it right for once!!!!!

  • A nations true wealth should be measured by the happiness and wellbeing of its people.

    Happiness is typically measured using subjective measures - e.g. surveys - and/or objective measures. One concern has always been the accuracy and reliability of peopleâ??s responses to happiness surveys.[3] Objective measures such as lifespan, income and education, are often used as well as or instead of subjectively reported happiness, though this assumes that they generally produce happiness, which while plausible may not necessarily be the case. The terms quality of life or well-being are often used to encompass these more objective measures.

    Property Prices are like shares.
    Good news for some , bad news for others
