Want to know how property values have grown in your suburb?
The Corelogic Mapping the Market Report looks at suburb median values, comparing values in December 2017 to December 2012.
The interactive format of the graphs below provides valuable insight into how the value of housing varies across cities, across the country as well as how values have shifted over time.
The data is useful in understanding the cost of a typical house or unit in a suburb.
Just scroll through the interactive graphic below using the buttons for maps of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart.
Please be patient – it takes a while for these maps to load because they contain lots of data, so they’re worth waiting for!
- Outside of Sydney and Melbourne housing market conditions have generally seen much lower rates of capital gain that has provided a more affordable playing field for home buyers.
- In Sydney, more suburbs now have a median house value in excess of $1 million than below.
- In Melbourne, only slightly more likely to find a suburbs with a median house value below $750,000 than you are to find one with a median above $1 million.
- Housing values vary substantially across the metro areas of the capital cities; even markets like Sydney show pockets where housing values are remarkably lower relative to the city wide median.
- Late in 2017 the rate of value growth started to slow, with the slowdown most pronounced across higher value housing stock. This may result in some reduction in suburbs with a median above $1 million over the coming year.
