Description

This paper chooses to examine the property prices in the Sydney suburb. On an average, the Australian residential property prices showcase a substantive increase, with Sydney property price index having an extreme hike as reported in the June quarter. This is why the paper seeks to examine Sydney residential property price trends. Lannin (2016) outlines the UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index rankings where Sydney is ranked the fourth riskiest market over the last three years a comparison launched since the price fall after the 2008/9 financial crisis.
