Sydney’s Price Growth in 2021

Virtually every suburb in the Greater Sydney Area has delivered growth in their median house prices in the past year and in the most recent quarter.

Only three suburbs – Darlinghurst, Artarmon and Hurlstone Park – failed to record annual growth in house prices.

The vast majority of Sydney suburbs recorded double-digit growth in their median house prices, including 44% which rose by 20% or more in the past year.

All but three suburbs recorded median house price uplift in the most recent quarter, with six out of 10 suburbs achieving quarterly growth above 5%.

The city leader on price growth, once again, is the Northern Beaches, where 19 suburbs delivered annual growth in house prices of at least 25%. The Northern Beaches stars were Manly, up by a remarkable 51%, Freshwater (43%), Manly Vale (40%) and Palm Beach (41%).

Northern Beaches suburbs to top 30% in annual price growth include Avalon Beach, Beacon Hill, Collaroy, Dee Why, Fairlight, Mona Vale, Narrabeen, Narraweena, Newport, Seaforth and Warriewood.

All of the 19 Northern Beaches suburbs that grew 25% or more have median house prices well above $2 million, with Manly close to $4.5 million and Palm Beach nudging $5 million.

Another wealthy enclave to record exceptional growth in the City of Waverley, where Bondi Beach, North Bondi, Bronte and Bondi Junction all recorded median house price uplift between 32% and 47%. North Bondi’s median price is now above $4 million and Bronte has now topped $5 million.

The Ku-ring-gai LGA has a cluster of suburbs with annual growth of 25% and above, led by Killara (up 36% to $4.02 million) and Warrawee (up 34% to $3.86 million). Other high-growth suburbs area Gordon, Pymble, Roseville, St Ives and Turramurra.

The North Sydney LGA also has a cluster of high achievers, including Neutral Bay (36%), Cammeray (26%), Cremorne (25%) and North Sydney (36%) – all places with median house prices of $3 million and higher.
