Sydney housing prices have ascended more than 20% in the past year with the median house price climbing past $1 million the next mark on the horizon will be the $ 2 million median house price mark.

Founder of Buyer’s Domain, Nick Viner, thinks there are a number of suburbs across Greater Sydney that will soon cross the $2 million threshold.

Leichhardt is Mr Viner’s top pick, with a current median house price of $1.76 million.

“Leichhardt is the very definition of a ‘bridesmaid’ suburb,” said Mr Viner.

“Its neighbouring suburbs comprise $2 million-plus locations such as Annandale, Lilyfield and Haberfield.”

With its position just 5km from Sydney’s CBD, and a multitude of transport options, it’s a good choice according to Mr Viner.

Alexandria is second on the list,  currently with a median house price of $1.875 million. The affluent and desirable inner-east suburb is nearby to Sydney best lifestyle suburbs, cafes, restaurants retail and close to the CBD.

Mr Viner says the key to Alexandria is knowing the location.

“The key to making the most gains here is buying in one of the suburb’s best streets.

“That’s either in the ‘golden triangle’, as it’s known or on Lawrence St or Belmont St.

“You might have to pay a bit more for these locations.”

Rosebery is close to some of the most high profile suburbs in Sydney and could benefit from the proximity. With a current median house price of $1.845 mullion, Mr Viner said it’s posted to enjoy strong capital growth in the coming months and years.

“Like Alexandria, this suburb is on the edge of the inner-east suburbs, so it is extraordinarily well placed to enjoy strong capital growth in the coming months and years,” he said.

“The challenge for the budget-conscious buyer here is finding stock – it’s an incredibly tight market with many houses well over $2 million already,” added Mr Viner.

Summer Hill and Newtown — median house prices of $1.952 and $1.68 million respectively — are the final two inner west suburbs that Mr Viner tips to break $2 million median house pirce soon.

With Summer Hill, Mr Viner said the nature of the suburbs made it appealing.

“Summer Hill has a wonderful village feel with a strong community vibe,” he said.

“It has great local shopping and other facilities, and the train can get you to the CBD in about 20 minutes.”

While Newtown’s proximity to the CBD and Sydney University made it an attractive location.


Melbourne’s prestige market has had an exceptional year.

An influx of people could calm future volatility.
