    Hey All,

    Anyone know where you can download list/csv data of things like median house prices, growth, yield.etc

    Basically I want the data from the back of magazines like API in excel so i can filter and sort the data.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm interested too (along with many others I'm sure). I asked API if the data could be exported to Excel. Response was that it could only be sorted in website itself. Looks like a lot of typing out figures into Excel to then do the sorting etc.

    I registered thinking I could simply connect using their API.
    1. It doesn't look like they provide the real API connection where you can write a code to get data. We need to go month by month to download the data. I guess it fine but not fun.
    2. They are asking a question like "What is the last word of the title in Angela Young's Advanced Investor story on page 64 of the September 2015 issue?"
    Seriously??!?

    I wonder what some people would think if the password for each month was shared on this site? Anyway, currently its July 2016... we're all ;) equals. ;)

    So is this a vb code we are talking about?

    Are their anybother ways through whixh we can get such data. I have always been interested but never been able to get that. I am sure these guys should be sourcing the data from somewhere. What could be yhe source?

    Regards

    API's source is Australian Property Monitors.

    Been having a look at the data on the API for August and July ;-), but I can't find asking price data for units or houses in suburbs like Balmain, Waterloo, Abbotsford all in sort of central Sydney. Looks like even if you could export this it wouldn't be worth it.

    Anyone know of any other source that might be a bit more complete?

    SQM is where I'd get asking price stats (can only do 1 postcode at a time though) or just look at Realestate or Domain for the asking price of current stock on market....

    Any ideas for historic data? After a few different suburbs, so a table would be good.

    You can get historical data through paid services, eg Pricefinder
