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.

Q2 2019 Key Market Indicators

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. This is interesting as the current consumer sentiment is on a -1.7% decline compared to 12 months ago (April 2018), which does not come as a surprise given past events such as: the Royal Banking Commission’s enquiry into the banking and financial sector, the handing down of the Federal Budget 2019, and the announcement of the 18 May 2019 Federal elections.
