Last year, median house prices in Sydney have increased by 15.1% to $763,169 – a $100,000 increase. The national median house price stands at $597,556, increasing by 4% from the previous year. Sydney has been a major driver in national house prices, but with a weak Australian dollar, high unemployment rate and inflation should keep these price increases at a minimum.
