One for the ages...

House prices now the mining investment boom has gone

Interesting piece out from Propell which you can read here, charting the mining towns property bust.

So many of these towns will be familiar names having been tipped by advisers as hot areas for buying property.

The concerning point of note for resources regions is that the unwinding of the capital expenditure boom has barely even begun its decline. 

There is evidently much more pain to come.
