Standard Bank's median house price last month dropped by 11.3 percent year on year to R550 000 from R620 000 in June last year, increasing the possibility that some homeowners owe more on their homes than they could sell them for. Its five-month moving average growth rate in the median house price was minus 7.8 percent.
