However, the discounting to secure unit sales  in both major capital cities has increased slightly.

Successful Melbourne house vendors on average discounted their houses by 8.2% in the week to April 7, down from 8.4% the week prior.

Successful Sydney house vendors on average discounted their houses by 6.5% in the week to April 7, down from 7% the week prior.
