The latest research from Sydney Units Cityscope shows that apartment sales in Sydney’s CBD have significantly decreased both in number and total sales value in the last quarter. The last three months to the beginning of January 2020 recorded 121 sales for a total of $163.4 million, a decrease from the 577 sales at a total value of $747.5 million recorded for the previous quarter. This is due to the off-the-plan sales of three buildings being included in the October update.

The 12 months leading up to the beginning of January 2020 recorded 1722 sales for a total of over $2.434 billion, more than $793 million higher than the recorded figure for the same time period the year before.
