Comparing shares vs. property in the final month of FY24, we saw ASX 200 shares outperform bricks and mortar in terms of asset price appreciation.

The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) rose 0.85% in June. Meantime, the national median home value rose by 0.7%, according to CoreLogic data.

That was the 17th consecutive month of growth for the national median price.

The median house price rose 0.5%, and the median apartment price lifted 0.7% over the month. On the share market, some stocks outperformed by a mile, including an ASX energy share that skyrocketed 40%.

CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless said the national median had lifted between 0.5% and 0.8% every month since February.

Lawless commented:

The persistent growth comes despite an array of downside risks including high rates, cost of living pressures, affordability challenges and tight credit policy.

The housing market resilience comes back to tight supply levels which are keeping upwards pressure on values.

Last month, we saw the same growth patterns and the same dominant markets as we saw in May.

Perth, Adelaide, and Brisbane delivered the highest home value growth. Home price medians rose in June at 2%, 1.7%, and 2%, respectively.

Among the regional markets, regional Western Australia led the pack with 1.5% growth. Regional South Australia followed with 1.1% growth, then regional Queensland with 1%.
