Sydney house price growth nears 17pc

It hardly seems possible, but the Sydney market may be growing even faster than previously thought.

Sydney’s median house price reached $929,000 at the end of March after jumping 16.8 per cent over the year, according to Residex.

That’s even higher than the recent findings of 16.0 per cent by Domain Group and 15.5 per cent by CoreLogic RP Data.
