AMP Capital chief economist Shane Oliver predicts property prices will rise by between 4% and 5% in 2013 spurred on by lower mortgage rates.

Oliver says property investors can expect returns of around 6% from their investment properties over 2013, compared with returns of 2% in 2012 and a loss of 4% in 2011, but well below expected returns for both listed property (12%) and unlisted property trusts (9%).
