Houses are getting snapped up within three weeks in some parts of Australia, while days on market is at worrying levels in other cities.

Sydney has the most hyperactive local market in the country, according to CoreLogic RP Data statistics for suburbs that had at least 30 house sales in the year to July.

Houses in Sadleir spend an average of 15 days on market, houses in Acacia Gardens spend 16 days on market, houses in Holsworthy spend 18 days on market, while houses in Currans Hill and Kareela spend 19 days on market.

Melbourne’s hottest suburbs are Croydon South with 19 days, Scoresby with 21 days, Chelsea Heights with 22 days, and Croydon Hills and Viewbank with 24 days.

Although Perth is Australia's worst-performing capital city for days on market, it has five stand-out suburbs that buck the trend.

Houses sell in an average of 30 days in Lockridge, 31 days in Shenton Park, and 33 days in Coolbellup, Brentwood and Parkwood.

In Brisbane, houses take 32 days to sell in Wilston, 33 days in Salisbury and Mansfield, 34 days in Everton Park and 36 days in Belmont.
