Arcos by Graya sold for $8.2m in 2022 in one of the biggest home sales of the year in Brisbane.


NEARLY $200m was splashed on 20 homes across Brisbane in 2022, with half of the properties selling for more than $10m each.

So far in 2022, Brisbane has recorded 36 home sales worth more than $5m each, according to Herron Todd White valuers.

That’s not as strong as 2021 when a record 52 sales were recorded over $5m, but the decrease is more about a lack of listings at the top end.

We’ve compiled a list of the top 20 reported home sales of the year in the Queensland capital:
