Peter and Ria Chrisafis share struggle to buy dream home in Sydney


Young couple, Peter and Ria Chrisafis, have shared their struggle to buy a dream home in Sydney, New South Wales, amid skyrocketing prices at auctions.

Recent data shows house values in the area that includes Greystanes and Merrylands have jumped by nine per cent this year.

Peter said he thought property prices were in “a bubble” at the time. He has since changed his mind. Recent data shows house values in the area that includes Greystanes and Merrylands have jumped by nine per cent this year.
