Real estate is widely considered as a reliable hedge of inflation rate and there have been many literatures examining the inflation-hedging characteristics of the real estate. The study described in the paper focuses on testing the significances of impacts of consumer price on house price in eight Australia's capital cities. The Autoregressive Distributed Lag model is introduced to obtain the estimates of the coefficient. The significances of the impacts are defined as the accept probability of t statistics of the coefficients. Analyses and comparisons of these significances suggested that the impacts of consumer prices on house prices depend on the inherent characteristics of cities.
