The top 10 most expensive suburbs for units were all located in Sydney, with Point Piper ranked number one, with a median value of $2,219,503.

Darling Point was second with a median value of $1,665,104, followed by The Rocks ($1,664,513), Cabarita ($1,515,092), Millers Point ($1,479,816), Cremorne Point ($1,299,864), Huntleys Cove ($1,281,955), Balmain East ($1,252,908), Tamarama ($1,232,265) and North Ryde ($1,222,875).

The data also showed that nationally, a total of 503 suburbs held a median value above $1 million at the end of 2015 – up 31 per cent on the 12 months prior.

“There was a time when housing that cost more than $1 million was seen as exclusive,” CoreLogic RP Data research analyst Cameron Kusher said.

“However, with recent increases in home values, suburbs with a typical home value of more than $1 million are becoming more common.”
