Sydney has become more of a haven for the world’s rich than Dubai, Miami, Paris and plenty of other global cities, with the Harbour City enjoying a record year for luxury mansion sales.

Sydney has cemented its status as a playground for the world’s wealthiest people, pulling in record mansion sales over 2018 and the first ever $100 million house purchase.

The Harbour City’s 20 highest home sales accounted for a record $675 million in transactions this year, which included five transactions above $35 million (US$25 million).

This put Sydney ahead of other global destinations such as Miami, Tokyo, Paris and Dubai for ultra-prestige sales.
