Canberra property market

Canberra’s median house price is comparatively lower than some of Australia’s other capital cities, making it more affordable for buyers to get into the market and get more bang for their buck. Canberra is considered to be one of Australia’s economic hotspots, boosted by a growing and employed population. It’s because of this that Canberra is expected to remain as one of Australia’s real estate hot spots. With reasonable low-priced housing, both investors and owner-occupiers are flocking to Canberra with promises of long-term capital growth and decent rental returns.
