In the period since the influential studies by Case and Shiller (1989, 1990), it hasbeen established that housing markets are characterised by information diffusionpatterns determined by informational inefficiencies. In Australia, little work hasbeen completed on the long-term patterns of these inefficiencies. This paperexamines a rich data set of transactions for the Perth housing market in the period1988-2000. The results confirm some significant long-term patterns for real houseprice changes and some close relationships between these patterns and changes inreal interest rates.
