Contents >> Housing >> Value of dwellings

In the 2000-01 Survey of Income and Housing Costs, owners were asked to estimate the value of their dwelling. These estimates may differ significantly from valuations made by accredited valuers and from an achievable sale price of the dwelling. The extent of the possible difference has not been measured. Therefore some care needs to be exercised in the use of these data.

The median owner-estimated value of dwellings for capital cities was $200,000, 10% higher than the national median ($180,000). The median value was highest in Sydney at $320,000 and lowest in Hobart at $130,000 (table 8.17).
