June saw a rebound in the number of people who think now is a good time to purchase property, up 11.4 per cent following declines over the past three months.
Not only this, there has been a 11.1 per cent fall in the number of respondents also believe house prices will rise in the near future, up from 9.8 per cent in May.
"While those expecting house prices to rise over the next 12 months still outnumber those expecting declines, nearly a third of respondents now expect prices to be unchanged," explained Westpac senior economist Matthew Hassan.
