“In terms of quarterly growth for east coast capitals, the median house price in Melbourne rose 3.7 per cent, to $652,500, an increase in the rolling annual median house price of 13.7 per cent,” he said.

“Sydney followed with an increase of 3.1 per cent over the March quarter to $782,973, 16.9 per cent higher than the figure for the same time last year,” he added.

At $782, 973, Sydney’s median house price is the highest amongst the Australian capital cities.
