Sydney five times dearer than Hobart

Affordable inner-city property still exists in Brisbane and even Melbourne, but is fast becoming impossible to find in Sydney.

Median house prices start from $353,000 for suburbs within 10 kilometres of Brisbane’s CBD, according to CoreLogic RP Data.

That figure rises to $583,000 in Melbourne and $840,000 in Sydney.

The Brisbane suburb of Rocklea has a median house price of $353,000, followed by Keperra on $439,000, Tingalpa on $479,000, Salisbury on $486,000 and Nathan on $487,000.

Bellfield in Melbourne has a median house price of $583,000, followed by Maidstone on $589,000, Footscray on $618,000, West Footscray on $631,000 and Preston on $676,000.
