Sydney continues to lead property price growth

The Sydney housing market is so hot that it is almost single-handedly propping up national price growth.

National house price growth is running at 8.0 per cent per annum, while unit price growth is at 5.2 per cent, according to Domain Group data for the March quarter.

Sydney is the only market where house prices exceed the national average, while Sydney and Darwin are the only markets where unit prices exceed the national average.
