Median House Prices have risen over these 28 years by the following average annualised growth rates:

Annual Property Growth By Capital City over 28 years

How do prices really affect house buyers?

Mortgage Payments as % of Income:

In 2011 90.1% of mortgage payments were UNDER 30% of household income.
In 2006 91.6% of mortgage payments were UNDER 30% of household income.

In 1984 The average New mortgage payment was about 20% of household Income.
In 2012 The average New mortgage payment was about 24% of household Income.

These rates have fluctuated between 18% (1980 and 1998) and 32% (1989 and 2008) over these years.  The 21% in 2009 seems a bit out of place, but maybe because only well off people took out new mortgages during that time.
