Go west. If you want to buy an affordable house with the highest price growth in Sydney. That's the clear message from the latest growth figures released for the Sydney property market, which will be encouraging for both people looking for a home – and those looking to invest.
The west takes out eight of the top 10 places in the table of the biggest median house price rises over the past year for Sydney in property priced between $550,000 and $600,000, with the south-west taking out the other two.
Topping the list is Valley Heights in the lower Blue Mountains, showing a huge 32.6 per cent 12-month growth, with Windsor at 29 per cent and Lalor Park at 28.7 per cent close behind.
"The outer suburbs are growing strongly, mainly because of their affordability advantages," says Dr Andrew Wilson, the senior economist of the Domain Group. "People realise that to buy in Sydney now means locational choices where they look more and more to the west and south-west for prices they can afford.
"Investors are targeting those areas too as they offer reasonable yields of over 4 per cent and the capital growth makes them attractive too. As a result of all that demand, prices are rising strongly."
With affordability now a subject of much political debate, and the Sydney median house price at $914,000 for the March quarter, and expectations that it will be much higher when the June quarter figures are released in four weeks, it seems people are choosing to move west rather than following Treasurer Joe Hockey's advice to get a good job instead.
"Western Sydney offers a great lifestyle with excellent public transport," says Doug Driscoll, chief executive of agents Starr Partners. "More and more people are now discovering how much good infrastructure it has too."
Dr Wilson says the hardest thing, especially for first home buyers, is that many of the suburbs in the top 10 were previously priced in the $400,000s but are now well over $500,000.
"The challenging statistic is how much longer will we be able to find a house to buy in Greater Sydney under $500,000?" he says. "With these kind of rates of growth, I wouldn't think it'd be for much longer."
