This Week In Australian Property #48

Can you believe it’s nearly Xmas?  Crazily it’s also the 48th edition of This Week In Australian Property!

This week I’ve found a great interactive tool from that allows you to search the suburb you want to buy in, for the cheaper pockets of property.  Obviously, a house needs to be on the market in one of these areas for you to buy it, however, I love data, and this is really helpful!

Housing experts are expecting an influx of homes to be built explicitly for the renter market over the next 5 years – hopefully, this means great properties and not just budget solutions for this growing segment.

Scare articles are surfacing around a risk of a housing market collapse driven (according to this article) by Mum & Dad investors, inflated prices, record household debt and an economy that appears to be losing momentum. It’s worth a read if you are looking at buying or selling property, however, please ensure you get your own financial advice.

Looking for inspiration?  There’s a renovation of a weekender that’s to die for; and for anyone looking to style a girls bedroom, here’s one you can pick up and implement easily with stockists for all items included.

And lastly, for all those Pride & Prejudice fans, Elizabeth Bennett’s home from the BBC series is up for sale in the Cotswolds – a mere $14m!
