Out of the total 437 suburbs to make the $1 million + average property value, NSW had the greatest number of suburbs at 302, up from 232 the previous year. With 61 suburbs, Victoria has the second highest number of suburbs with an average property value in excess of $1 million and far less than NSW’s number. Across the rest of the country, 14.0% are in Vic, 3.2% in Qld, 2.7% in SA, 8.9% in WA, 0.0% in Tas, 0.5% in NT and 1.6% in ACT.
This list shows the effect of strong capital growth rates, with Sydney values rising substantially faster than all other major cities. Good news for property owners who have owned property in Sydney for at least 3 years as they are likely to have built up a large amount of equity in their home.
