Where will house prices be 25 years from now?

While most real estate investors worry about the value of their properties today, particularly in light of our flat and falling property markets, in my mind a much better question is “where will property prices be 25 years from now?”

And the good news is that, believe it or not, the median house price in Sydney could be over $6million and the median apartment price in our Harbour City could be close to $3.5 million in 25 years’ time.

Now before you say “NO that can’t be! Housing is already unaffordable” let me explain…

The 15 Best Suburbs to Invest in Sydney in 2019

This Blog is going to be a little different from my other blogs.

Purely because I write this blog with a level of hesitation.

And the reason for this hesitation is because whenever I see a blog written with the title “Top Hotspots for 2019” or “Property Investment Hotspots” it usually makes me cringe.
