Prices are surging in Sydney's suburbs, revealing the city’s property hotspots, according to the latest study by

Suburbs like Palm Beach, Pymble, Collaroy, Cabramatta, and Vaucluse have achieved price growth of 4% to 24% over the year to August.

Cabramatta, which was one of the relatively affordable suburbs in the city, reported a 4% increase in median sale price to $849,000, making it one of the strongest suburbs in the city in terms of price growth.

"Cabramatta is getting expensive. It's going through a bit of a transition, though, and because it's quite cheap, I think it is attracting a lot of younger people," chief economist Nerida Conisbee said.

Cabramatta is the only suburb amongst the 10 most active with a median value of less than $1m.

"It does seem to be one of those suburbs that is slowly going through a bit of a change in who's living there and who is wanting to be there," Conisbee said.

Vaucluse reported the highest growth at 24%, bringing its median sale price to $6.5m. Collaroy followed, recording a 15% increase to $2.75m
