08/29/2022 Sydney Auction News | Australia’s Sea- and Tree-change Shift

Some of Australia’s most expensive coastal suburbs along east-coast Australia more than doubled national gains in property prices from the trough to the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, some of those same suburbs which experienced the largest gains amid the pandemic property price surge are now facing double-digit drops.

According to Corelogic, Copacabana on the Central Coast ranked in the first place in Sydney as the suburb with the biggest trough to peak change (up 61.2%); however, prices have already dropped 5.4% since their peak. The largest price drop on the list for Sydney was Taren Point in Sutherland, which enjoyed a 56.6% rise over the pandemic boom but has already suffered a 16% drop in prices from the peak.

Newport, Kurnell, North Narrabeen, Avalon Beach, Elanora Heights, and Tamarama all also feature on the top 20 list for NSW, and each has price drops between 10.1-13.8% from their peak.

Instead of easy access to the city for work and nightlife, people increasingly opted for larger spaces in lower-density areas along the coast or in lifestyle suburbs where prices were cheaper and remote working was easy to do.

And while the tide has turned for some of these suburbs, many businesses have adopted a more permanent work-from-home and flexible working structure, meaning that even after prices have fallen, demand for property in some of these areas could still hold prices up higher than pre-COVID.
