The latest home value survey shows Darwin outperforming all other capital cities over the past year.
The RP Data-Rismark index shows a median dwelling price of $495,000.
That equates to a rise of just over 1 per cent for the month of November.
But the figures show a 13 per cent year-on-year increase in Darwin and a total gross return of 20 per cent.
The next highest capital city, Perth, increased by 3.4 per cent and 8 per cent for the same two measurements.
