Data from the Domain Group shows five suburbs where many vendors are still having to offer big discount to secure a sale.

Price discounting, where the private treaty sale price is lower than marketed, was most prominent in Vaucluse, in the year to May 2015.

The average vendor needed to accept 8.7% less, followed by Mona Vale, where price discounting was 6.7%.

Ultimo, Mosman and Avalon all had required 6.6% price sale discounts.

Domain Group senior economist Dr Andrew Wilson said despite the discounting, all five suburbs experienced house price growth for the year to May.
