Sydney's house price growth slows to a crawl

House price growth in Sydney has decreased to such an extent that it has been eclipsed by Hobart over the past three months.

Sydney still has Australia’s highest median house price, at $940,000, according to new statistics from CoreLogic RP Data.

However, house prices grew only 0.3 per cent over the three months to 31 October. By way of comparison, the city's house prices grew 3.3 per cent during the previous quarter.

Adelaide climbed 1.1 per cent to $430,000, while Melbourne climbed 0.7 per cent to $675,000.

House prices in the other two capitals went backwards – Brisbane fell 0.3 per cent to $490,000, while Perth fell 2.9 per cent to $520,000.

Unit prices performed very differently during the October quarter. Brisbane led the way, with the city’s median unit price jumping 3.6 per cent to $398,000.

Three other capitals posted gains, with Sydney up 2.5 per cent to $675,000, Melbourne up 0.9 per cent to $500,000 and Perth up 0.1 per cent to $420,000.
