Residential property prices have been increasing rapidly in recent years in Australia. The national stratified median house prices reached to A$701,827 in June quarter 2015 [1]. This paper examines the impacts of Australian migration on house prices for the period of March 1981 – June 2014. The relationships between house prices and immigration are estimated through a single error correction model (ECM). The estimated results suggest that net overseas migration contributed to house price appreciation in Australia. However, employment and supply factors also played major roles.
