Homes in the Sydney suburbs of Hunters Hill, Canada Bay and Ku-ring-gai are the top council areas with the most valuable real estate assets, according to a new report by Aussie Home Loans and CoreLogic RP Data.

The report found homes in Hunters Hill have an average equity level of 72.3 percent or $878,481, then Canada Bay at 70.2 percent and Ku-ring-gai with 69.2 percent.

Mortgaged homes across NSW have an average of 56.6 percent equity or $358,763.

Aussie executive chairman John Symond said the data confirms that NSW property has been a great wealth creator for owners, compared with other asset classes and property in other states across Australia.

“I believe the best investment both for security and lifestyle is still real estate and I see no reason why this will change over the next decade, especially in view of the lower interest rate climate, lack of housing supply and continuing population growth”, said.

"Fast growing Sydney council areas dominate the survey as property prices have risen at a compounding rate of 8.3 per cent over the last 20 years.

Councils in the Upper Hunter Valley had the lowest average home equity within New South Wales, especially Muswellbrook and Singleton.

CoreLogic RP Data research director Tim Lawless said Sydney is leading the state in home values as the population grows in the city, while many regional centres are facing neutral or falling population levels.

“The figures show that areas close to Sydney’s CBD have generally performed better as the population becomes more compressed with more medium to high density dwellings”, he said.
