Listings fell last week across most capital cities, led by Melbourne at -9.8 per cent, Darwin at -9.4 per cent and Sydney at -9.2 per cent. Canberra experienced the only gain at 16.6 per cent.

Houses remained more popular than units, and the average time on market for both houses and units rose last week, with only Hobart holding steady at 36 days.

The worst performers were Darwin at 107 days, Perth at 79 days and Brisbane at 71 days.

Vendor discounting across most capital cities was between 4.6 per cent and 6.4 per cent for houses, and between 4.8 per cent and 6.1 per cent for units.

Hobart was the low-end exception for houses at 3.3 per cent and Canberra for units at 3.1 per cent.

Darwin was the high-end exception for houses at 9.9 per cent and Perth for units at 10.9 per cent.
