- The best suburbs in Sydney were scattered up and down the west of Sydney.
- Prices are forecast to rise by 3% to 6% by the end of this year.
- However, the pace of growth has slowed since prices picked up earlier this year.
Suburbtrends has revealed the top Sydney suburbs, ranking them by desirability and investment potential.
The Sydney suburb rankings were created by whittling down an extensive list of Sydney locations, considering factors such as short and long-term price changes, the stock a suburb has, how long homes on the property market take to sell, vacancy rates, other rental trends, and affordability.
The list is further refined by looking into who owns their own home, the number of mortgagees, the impact of artificial intelligence, and SEIFA scores.

Sydney real estate market expected to surge
Recently released PropTrack forecasts show Sydney property prices are expected to grow by some margin, ranking only second to Perth.
The best suburbs in Sydney could be buoyed by the forecast of 3% to 6% price growth by the end of this year.
While growth is expected, prices may top out over the next year or so. CoreLogic‘s Home Value Index (HVI) found that while Sydney led the nation for the house price recovery, the latest rises have lost some steam; Sydney recorded a rise of 1.8% in May, while July’s rise was just 0.9%.

“Scorecards are nuanced tools, considering multiple factors that contribute to a suburb’s attractiveness,” explained Suburbtrends founder, Kent Lardner.
“By examining price changes, supply and demand indicators, rental market dynamics, and affordability measures, we capture a comprehensive snapshot of each suburb’s investment potential. It’s about providing a comprehensive view rather than relying on a single variable.”
