Sydney housing confirmed as most expensive — since 2007

Sydney housing, most expensince since 2007

Despite moderate declines very recently and with a healthy current median value of $904,041, Sydney remains the country’s most expensive housing market, as it has been since it took the title from Perth in 2006 and 2007, according to the latest CoreLogic data.

According to CoreLogic’s most recent Property Pulse, the current Sydney dwelling value premium is as large now as it was in late 2002.

Research analyst Cameron Kusher said that Sydney values peaked in December 2002, before falling by 8.2 per cent, then peaking again in October 2007.

“It is reasonable that we could see similar falls over the coming years, which would in turn narrow the gap between the value of housing in other capital cities relative to Sydney,” Mr Kusher said.

“Just because the Sydney premium is currently above the long-term average for most cities, this doesn’t necessarily mean that we will see a reversion to those long-term averages.”

Mr Kusher also said that dwelling values are beginning to fall in Sydney, and assuming they continue, the premium relative to the other capital cities is likely to decline.
