Owners who sell investment properties earn the lowest profits since the financial crisis.

Properties in regional NSW have also faced a significant fall in profits, but have followed better than Sydney.

Yields in the regional suburbs increased by 6.7 percent in the last year, which was still the smallest increase since February 2013.

Across Australia, total annual returns have fallen to 1.9 percent.

A year earlier, annual returns were around 14.2 percent.

Despite the success for Sydney owners, first-time buyers have seized the opportunity to buy.

Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed a six-year high in the participation of first-home buyers.
