Sydney property continues to perform strongly with clearance rates of 83% at the past weekend’s auctions. Listing numbers were down slightly on the prior week– with 626 properties listed this week versus 696 last week, however more properties sold at auction this week.

The two trends to emerge from the weekend auctions were:

  • The emergence of “sleeper” suburbs such as Epping and Eastwood, which are recording $3m+ house prices where historically $3m+ prices have not been achieved.
  • The strength in the apartment sector, particularly two bedroom apartments within 10kms of the Sydney CBD. Buyers are both investors and owner occupiers.

What sold?

11 Lewis St, Epping, a 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom home on 936 sqm sold for $3.06m. Epping’s median 4 bedroom house price is $1.793m.
