Current value buying areas – houses

We’ve seen significant declines in median house prices in some of Sydney’s best suburbs, indicating that greater value is now available for families and upgraders in outstanding locations – and probably only for a short time. My top ten value suburb picks are:

  1. Breakfast Point (-47 per cent) *
  2. North Avoca (-38 per cent)
  3. Palm Beach (-30 per cent)
  4. Bellevue Hill (-23 per cent)
  5. Pearl Beach (-20 per cent)
  6. Northwood (-20 per cent)
  7. Wombarra (-19 per cent)
  8. Seaforth (-18 per cent)
  9. Kensington (-17 per cent)
  10. Northbridge (-16 per cent)

* 12-month price changes; Source RP Data on 3 June 2009.

My picks are

  1. Erskinsville
  2. Glebe
  3. Lanecove
  4. Gordon             for Apartments


  1. Granville
  2. Blacktown
  3. Ryde
  4. Mosman          for houses
