Sydney home values have experienced the greatest increase of any capital city over the past year.
In this, the first part of an 8 part series from Core Logic’s Quarterly Review of the Australian Residential Property Market and Economy we look at the Sydney Housing Market.
The lift in home values has been supported by a reduction in the average time on market, a low level of discounting by vendors and a reduction in the number of properties available for sale.
