Buy a home or apartment in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Canberra.
We cover what’s new and hot, what’s on the market, and what’s bargains.
The latest home sales, property listings and industry news to know.
1 / 7 Buy a house,what’s real estate?
Property market data show that Sydney has the highest number of properties for sale in the country.
This is despite the fact that Melbourne and Brisbane have the highest population densities, with Sydney’s population of around 1.8 million people and Brisbane’s of 1.1 million people.
The average Sydney house price is $1.4 million.
Property sales are also higher in the suburbs of Sydney, with more than 5,000 homes listed per hour on Sydney’s CBD alone in the past week.
The suburbs are home to a number of well-known luxury properties, with a number such as the Hyde Park house and the iconic Belvedere Hotel making the cut.
However, despite this high concentration of properties available, the median price of a home in Sydney is $4.7 million, which is lower than the $5.2 million average price of the property market in the whole of Queensland.
Property values are also set to fall in Sydney in the next three years, which could mean a major drop in the affordability of property values, especially in Sydney’s outer suburbs.
2 / 7 Which is best value for money?
The most affordable homes in Sydney come with plenty of amenities and amenities that make them more affordable to the middle class, according to property agents.
Property owners in the outer suburbs can get the best value out of their homes by not only getting their money’s worth, but also having the luxury of being able to have more than one property.
In some areas, like Southbank, the value of the average house is higher than the average apartment price in the city, which means you’ll be able to afford to buy more than just one property and still have enough for the whole family.
However in other areas, such as Bondi Beach and Southbank in particular, you’ll have to look at whether you can afford to move to one of these places.
The median price for a home with two bedrooms in Southbank is $749,000, which makes it the second most expensive property in the region.
3 / 7 Why are property prices in Sydney so high?
A big part of the reason for this high house prices is due to Sydney’s high concentration in the inner-west suburbs.
This area of the city has a median house price of $1,737,000 and is dominated by houses built between 1995 and 2020, according the Sydney Real Estate Board.
In fact, more than 60 per cent of the median house prices in the suburb are on the Sydney Gold Coast.
This high concentration also has contributed to the fact property prices are so high in the areas around Bondi, the CBD, Southbank and other inner-western suburbs.
While the median Sydney house value is $2.2m, the average price for an apartment in the CBD is $3,700.
A new house in Sydney costs around $1 million, while an apartment that’s only 20 per cent bigger in size is $600,000.
The high price of Sydney property is also due to a housing crisis in the capital city, where prices are rising at a rate of more than 30 per cent a year.
This means that many buyers are forced to go elsewhere to buy a house in the area.
4 / 7 What is real life like?
The Sydney housing market is extremely volatile and has changed over time.
It is hard to say how the housing market will react to the economic crisis and the housing bubble that is about to burst in Sydney.
The Sydney real estate market is particularly vulnerable to the effect of the national housing crisis and rising property prices.
It has seen prices soar, particularly in the more expensive inner-city suburbs of Bondi and the CBD.
However this bubble is expected to burst soon, as Sydney’s housing market stabilises and prices begin to recover.
A number of factors are thought to have contributed to this increase in Sydney house prices.
Sydney’s economic boom and bust of 2008 and 2010 was one of the biggest factors behind the rise in Sydney property prices, which resulted in the housing crisis.
The downturn in the economy also played a major role in the property bubble in Sydney which had people struggling to find work.
Some people also moved into other suburbs because of the lack of opportunities.
This may explain why some property owners are now in Sydney with their homes in an unoccupied area.
However there is also the increased risk that the economic boom will return.
This would likely result in a massive fall in property prices if the housing price bubble burst.
Another factor that may have contributed is the rise of international buyers and the high cost of living in Sydney
