108 Residential Property Markets 2013-14 Budget Source: REINT The Darwin and Palmerston overall median of $578000 in the Decemberquarter2012 represents an increase of 12.0percent compared with the Decemberquarter2011. Within Darwin and Palmerston, inner Darwin recorded the strongest growth, with a median price of $875000 in the December quarter 2012, up by 15.4percent compared with the same period last year. Median house prices also increased substantially in Darwins northern suburbs and in Palmerston, up by 14.9percent and 11.5percent, respectively (Chart 9.7). The substantial increase in Darwin and Palmerston median house prices in 2012 reflects increased demand for housing as population and employment growth strengthened after the commencement of several major projects, increased confidence in the Territorys property markets and a number of interest rate cuts since late 2011.
