February 25th proved to one of the biggest auction days Sydney has had in the past year with 940 properties listed for auction and an 80% auction clearance rate. In total, $693 million dollars worth of property was sold and the median price increased to $1.42 million from $1.227 million the week prior. The reason for the spike in the median price is the increase in property prices all across Sydney – not just in historically affluent suburbs.

The story from this weekend’s auctions is the sheer number of properties that sold above $3 million in suburbs all across Sydney. There were 22 properties that sold for $3 million+ at this weekend’s auctions and while this price is expected in some Sydney suburbs, we have never seen the spread of $3 million+ sales as widely across Sydney. There were multiple sales in the Inner West, sales in the South, in the North and in the East. Here is a sampling of some of the properties that sold above $3 million in Sydney this weekend:
