Wollongong, the sprawling New South Wales beachside town, with a population of approximately 300,000 people has now joined the big leagues in terms of being expensive.

Sydney, Melbourne, Wollongong and London now all have pricier homes than America’s biggest city! They’re also more expensive than Toronto, Washington D.C. and Miami.

The survey even reported that Australian homes are overvalued by a whopping 49%! 

This may come as a shock as Wollongong has in the past been known for its affordable family homes and small units by the beach, however real-estate agents have revealed it does have its fair share of luxury properties.
