Home to Sydney’s world famous Harbour Bridge and boasting some of the most prestigious waterfront property in Australia, North Sydney is a thriving commercial hub 3km north of Sydney’s CBD. This suburb is still displaying consistent growth despite the high level of supply, indicating that thus far, demand could still be absorbing stock.Full summary

NORTH SYDNEY, NSW – Business hub commands growth despite glut of units

Median house price: $1,912,500     

Stock on market: 102.1%

12-month growth: 12.3%

The suburb of North Sydney could be one reason why some experts fear an oversupply in the capital.

According to Real Estate Investar, the amount of stock on market shot up by over 100%. The majority of the new supply consists of units, which went from 44 in 2015 to 90 as of November 2016. The vacancy rate of this period reflects the effect of this influx, as it skyrocketed from an already-high 6.4% to 7.7%.

Nonetheless, North Sydney is still displaying consistent growth despite the high level of supply, indicating that thus far, demand could still be sustaining it. CoreLogic data indicates that over the past 12 months, prices in this suburb increased by a staggering 12.3%, bringing the median house price to almost $2m. This is likely attributed to North Sydney’s very short distance from the CBD and status as a commercial district.
