The market's current standing is even more impressive, with prices now standing 1.36% above those of July 2022.

Sydney's Leadership Role

Sydney has emerged as a driving force behind Australia's property market recovery. The city witnessed a further 0.28% increase in July, propelling home prices to a remarkable 5.26% above the trough experienced in November 2022. Sydney's ascent exemplifies its economic strength and signals a positive shift in buyer sentiment, reflecting renewed confidence in the market.

Brisbane's Remarkable Rebound

Brisbane's resilience is another standout feature of the current property landscape. The city has successfully reversed the price falls from the previous year, with a notable 0.37% rise in July, leading to a new peak.

Capital Cities Show Positive Growth

This collective growth underscores the broad-based recovery in the property market, fueled by strong buyer interest and favourable economic conditions.

Urban Areas Outpacing Regional Markets
