Sydney’s Most Expensive Suburbs

9th May 2017

The Harbour City is home to some of the nation’s priciest properties, but which areas are Sydney’s most expensive suburbs?

Point Piper, home to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and eye-watering property prices, didn’t make the list as the tightly-held suburb had too few sales over the past 12 months to qualify.

By Danielle Cahill –

So where are Sydney’s most expensive suburbs?

Darling Point topped the list of the most expensive established suburbs in Sydney with a median sold price of $5.7 million, followed by Cremorne Point at $4.875 million and Bellevue Hill at $4.775 million. Scroll down further for the full list.

Sydney’s most expensive neighbourhoods range in price from $5.7 million – $3.2 million, CoreLogic data for the 12 months to 30 April 2017 shows.

These figures represent the median sold price for properties in these areas and are for suburbs with at least 10 sales within that twelve-month period.

So what attracts buyers to these upmarket neighbourhoods?
