Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 2nd Half 2019 - Hobart

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), minimising the decline in capital growth became an objective. This is good news for first home buyers because chosen affordable and liveable suburbs are now even more affordable.
