Top 12 Resilient Regional Areas
The Australian property market is made up of many ‘micro markets’, each performing at its own individual pace dependent upon demographics, population growth, economic structure and fundamentals, and Local/State Government policies.

Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 2nd Half 2019 - Sydney
A key finding in this report was that in order to identify affordable and liveable areas, suburbs with declining annual median house or unit price growth had to be considered. This was the same methodology applied in the 1st Half 2019¥ report. Therefore, instead of showcasing only suburbs with price growth (which was the trend in 2nd Half 2018µ report), it continued to be an exercise in minimising the decline in capital growth. This is good news for first home buyers because chosen affordable and liveable suburbs are now even more affordable.
