Melbourne remains the second most expensive city in the country to buy a house, behind Sydney, where the median house price for the quarter in June grew to eye-watering $ 1.4 million.

Surber-up-and-comer Canberra is hot on the heels of Melbourne with a median house price rising 10.4 percent to $ 1,015 million.

Other notable mentions included Brisbane ($ 678,236), Adelaide ($ 629,728), Hobart ($ 646,301) and Darwin ($ 608,519).

When all capitals are taken into account, the median cost of buying a detached house in Australia is now $ 955,927.

Speaking of the extraordinary growth, domain CEO Jason Pellegrino said a number of factors came together to increase property prices.

“What we see in Australia is not unique, everywhere in the world there has been a strong growth in residential property,” Pellegrino said.

“The record low interest rates, prioritization of home life due to travel restrictions and diversion of estimated income to repay debt have given Australians greater purchasing power and increased prices.”

Sir. Pellegrino said rising house prices and inadequate wage increases could see government intervention sooner rather than later.

“With the latest wage report from ABS that annual national wages have risen by only 1.5 per cent, we are eager to see if this recent national house price increase of 18.8 per cent encourages action on stamp reform, which would welcome first home buyers, “said Mr Pellegrino.
