Is your home in 1100 Australian million-dollar suburbs, Here’s list

Australian housing prices will continue to rise in 2022 but at a slower pace.

418 suburbs have now joined the million-dollar club during Australia’s housing boom.

PropTrack director of economic research Cameron Kusher told realestate.com.au that many suburbs have eclipsed the $1 million median price mark in Australia:

“The past 12 months has seen property prices rise at their third highest rate on record, plus people have been comfortable borrowing more due to low mortgage rates and dedicating more income to housing because they essentially couldn’t spend in ways they usually would during the pandemic.” 

According to PropTrack data, 1100 suburbs around Australia now have a median house price in excess of $1 million.

Mr. Kusher adds:

“Paying $1 million for a house is much more normal nowadays anywhere than it was in the past and the $1 million price tag is no longer necessarily the indication of owning a premium property like it was in decades past.”

Mr. Kusher believes that Australian housing prices will continue to rise in 2022 at a slower pace.
