Zero vacancies: 20 suburbs where renters are in ‘desperate’ mode
A new report has revealed 20 suburbs where tenants are now in crisis mode, as they cough up more than half of their week...
The number of suburbs with a price tag over $1 million has gone through the roof in the past year.
According to new information from RP Data, there are now 417 suburbs in this category, up from 312 in 2013.
New South Wales dominated the high-end of the market as 174 of its suburbs have a $1 million plus price tag.
In addition, 22 of the nation’s 25 most expensive suburbs are found in Sydney.
The country’s highest prices were found in Point Piper, where the median price is $5,692,339.
Peppermint Grove in was the highest non-Sydney address on the rankings, coming in eighth place with a median price of $3,726,975.
RP Data research analyst Cameron Kusher pointed to low interest rates as a driver of the luxury market.
“This encourages people to look to upgrading to bigger homes and in more ideal locations,” he said.
“We’re seeing a large slice of this activity taking place within the higher-end of the housing market and as a result, propelling home values higher and into the million-dollar realm.”
