Mapping the Market - December 2016

The Mapping the Market Report highlights the market performance across individual regions and suburbs across a capital city.

The Mapping the Market Report is published quarterly and is a series of thematic maps highlighting the following statistics for houses and units:

  • Median values
  • 12 month change in median values
  • Median rental rates
  • 12 month change in median rental rates

Across the combined capital cities, dwelling values increased by 10.9% over the 12 months to December 2016 which was their greatest increase over a calendar year since 2009.  Rental rates on the other hand, are falling and showing some of their largest declines in more than 20 years.

The common theme across the individual capital cities is that home values and rental rates are in most instances more expensive closer to the city and more affordable as you move further away from the city centre. The charts also highlight that Sydney in particular is a much more expensive housing market relative to the other capital cities.

All data included in the following pages is displayed at a suburb level and where there is no colouring on the maps it indicates there were not enough sale or rental observations to calculate statistically reliable figures.  Also note that all of the underlying data is available for purchase.
