Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 2nd Half 2019 - Brisbane
A key finding of this report is that the majority (5 out of 6) of the affordable and liveable suburbs are on the north side of the Brisbane River. These suburbs have the best possible median price growth while also satisfying other criteria such as: low vacancy rates, high yields, large infrastructure spending, low crime and proximity to amenities. In the previous 1st Half 2019¥ report, suburbs were spread throughout Brisbane, which suggests that there are now limited options.

Australian consumer sentiment read 100.7 index points in April 2019, exactly on the positive line of 100 index points, indicating that in general, Australians have a positive yet cautious outlook on the economy.
