Sydney suburbs leading the property market rebound have seen median prices jump by up to $300,000 in the space of a year, new data shows, with more than a dozen recording double-digit growth.

About one in five suburbs saw prices climb over the year to December, the latest Domain House Price Report data showed, with house prices in nine suburbs and unit prices in four neighbourhoods increasing by more than 10 per cent.

A strong end to last year saw Sydney record its first annual price growth since the market boom ended in 2017. Sydney house prices increased 6.8 per cent in a year to a median of $1,142,212, while unit prices jumped 3 per cent to a median of $735,387.

“Prices are still not where they were in 2017, but it’s been an incredible rebound and all indicators point to them reaching those peak levels this year,” Domain economist Trent Wiltshire said.

The developing suburb of Norwest, where new homes dominate the market, had the biggest uplift with the median increasing a staggering 24 per cent to $1.274 million.
