There’s no denying it’s pretty rough for first home buyers in Sydney right now, with the median house price sitting at just over $1 million. But what could that get you overseas?
Perhaps it’s time to apply for a green card so you can buy property in the USA, because things are looking much better over there.
Sydney’s median house price is currently hitting $1,123,991 (equal to $US849,385). Let’s have a look at what you can get!
In Los Angeles you can get yourself a 1950s style four-bedroom home like this one in the suburb of Fullerton. Since the median house price in LA is $US610,400 you could probably afford to buy a home near a few celebrities too.
You could definitely afford a home on Park Avenue in New York City. The properties here are generally smaller than in Sydney, but if you chose this three-bedroom apartment, you'd be two blocks from Central Park. It's also got 24-hour concierge and parking.
If you're into the party lifestyle, buy a property in Las Vegas! The city has a median house price of $US207,800 so with $US849,385 you can really splurge. Try this three-bedroom house with waterfront views and an outdoor pool.
Seattle is one of America's more expensive cities, but for Sydney's median house price it still looks pretty good. You can get yourself a cute home like this one with four bedrooms and a fireplace!

San Francisco is an expensive city, with the average house price sitting higher than Sydney's one at $US1,146,800. You could still get yourself a small inner city apartment like this four-bedroom one.
Houses are big in San Diego! You could afford this huge four-bedroom house which has a driveway for four cars - very rare in the neighbourhood.
