House prices have risen so fast in Sydney that just four suburbs are still within reach for first-home buyers. Not surprisingly, they are all more than 45 kilometres away from the CBD.Just a small cluster of suburbs in Sydney’s west – Willmot, Tregear, Emerton and Lethbridge Park – had a median price that was on par with the typical amount spent on a property by first-home buyers.In 2000, there were 51 suburbs with a median price that matched what first-home buyers were spending, including a swathe of choices in the west and south-west.This Emerton house sold in 2016 for $440,000 – up $225,000 since 2007.

18 suburbs with the most properties for sale

And in Mosman LGA, new listings for apartments dropped by 50 per cent over the same time period.Home buyers should consider the west and south-west, including “growth” areas with new developments, where there’s more choice on offer.
