Our insights


The Sydney property market has experienced a boom over the last ten years thanks to population and job growth. But, a recent decrease in median property value indicates the market has entered its correction phase.


Sydney has experienced a boom in the last five years with a huge 75% increase in house prices since 2013. For the first time, the median house price hit $1 million, making Sydney one of the most expensive cities in the world to buy.

As expected after growth of this scale, Sydney’s market is now slowing. However, Sydney’s economy remains strong with jobs and population figures predicted to continually increase, indicating this is a natural correction in the market cycle rather than a market ‘crash’.


Sydney is made up of many small markets. By zooming into individual suburbs, there is still potential for property price growth despite the overall slowing of the Sydney market as a whole. This is particularly true for Sydney’s inner and middle ring suburbs, which consistently see a higher property price growth than outer areas of the city.

  • The population of Sydney grew by 1.7% last year reaching an estimated 5.57 million people


  • Sydney created almost one third of all new Australian jobs last year


  • There are approximately 650 suburbs in Sydney’s metropolitan area


The average age of residents in Sydney’s CBD is just 32 years old, with many younger buyers and tenants looking for the convenience of city living and entertainment facilities. This has contributed to the gentrification of previously undesirable areas, which are now hot spots for property investment with infrastructure spending being pumped into inner and middle ring suburbs.


Property investors can benefit from these trends by securing the right type of property, in the right area. Some areas of Sydney suffer from an oversupply of property, so it’s important to conduct research to ensure that any investment will be attractive to Sydney’s very specific demographic.
