Realestate.com.au reports the 3.9 per cent discount Burgess secured was above the average saving offered by sellers in the area.
It comes at a time when the Southern Highlands housing market has boomed thanks to Sydneysiders looking to live on large properties. The area’s median house sale price has skyrocketed by 20.3 per cent in the past 12 months to $740,000.
