The Murrumbidgee council area is the top-performing market in the country, according to CoreLogic.

CoreLogic said when it comes to market growth the Riverina town is number one.

The area’s median house prices have ballooned in the past 20 years, recording a growth of 13 percent per annum.

Tim Lawless, CoreLogic’s director of research, attributed the growth to an influx of new housing and strong local economic conditions.

“Prices have moved from an extremely low base which can magnify the percentage change," he said.
