Significant Urban Area (SUA) Tracker Report | October 2018

Spring is definitely in the air and so is hay fever. But are Australia’s Significant Urban Areas affected by it as well?

As mentioned in Episode 193, we are sharing LocationScore’s SUA Tracker Report for October 2018!

What’s in this SUA Tracker Report?

In this month’s SUA Tracker, we see Ballarat on its 6 consecutive upward trend to a LocationScore of 70. But it’s still slightly behind Hobart which is holding its high score of 74. Meanwhile, the cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide are still holding their Location Score in the 60s.

What’s also interesting is the rise of Mackay. 3 years ago it had a very low score of 36. Now the LocationScore is up to a very healthy 60. But will it keep going or start levelling out?

But of course, we’re not just focusing on the positives here cause not all of the markets are on an upward trend. Wollongong’s LocationScore for example has slid around 10% in the last year and there are a couple of SUAs that are showing slight downward trends such as: Port Macquarie and Busselton.

Overall, most of the suburbs in this month’s SUA Tracker are maintaining their current LocationScore.

Property Market Swingers Report | April 2018

Ever wondered if a certain city has reached its peak, or if another has finally bottomed? Well, we’ve calculated the average LocationScore for Australia’s 20 most significant urban areas over the last 3 years.

Now you can see which macro markets are swinging up or down. LocationScore is a mark out of 100 for the level of demand relative to supply in a residential property market. The higher demand is with respect to supply, the higher the LocationScore.

Episode 108 | Five Ways To Improve Affordability

Back in Episode 102, Bryce and Ben discussed if we are facing an affordability issue and when Jan Somers appeared on our show last month, she mentioned that her aunt was also concerned about housing affordability back in the 1950s. Now, with the Federal Budget just a couple of months away, this topic appears yet again, and it seems to be the favourite amongst our politicians.

This time, the debate is about improving affordability for first home buyers. Now, don’t get us wrong. The Property Couch believes in the Great Australian Dream and owning your home. But as mentioned before, your first home will not be luxurious nor will it tick all the criteria of your dream home. This is about setting the right expectation because you would get to your dream home, and you would be able to get that quarter acre house eventually. But it will not happen overnight. You need to work for it, and you need to be smart with your decisions especially when it comes to money and planning for the future. Your first home, may not be your dream home but this does not mean that your second or third home wouldn’t be.

That is why education around property and awareness on the risk of investing in property is so important. This is one of the suggestions that Bryce and Ben chat about to improve affordability in the Australian Property Market. Tune in to find out the rest.

Episode 102 | Do We Have A Housing Affordability Issue?

Finally, back in the studio again this week and as mentioned in Ben’s latest RBA’s cash rate announcement video, this episode of the podcast has Bryce and Ben talking about the all time hot debate topic: The Housing Affordability Issue. But before that, we just want to highlight that the podcast has reached another one of our milestone!

1,027,000 DOWNLOADS!

A big thank you to all of our listeners for tuning in! We wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without your support, reviews, feedbacks and all the amazing questions that you’ve sent in! Our next milestone target is 5,000,000 downloads so if you think we are a good bunch of people and the contents are helpful, just let someone else know. 😉

Anyway, back to today’s podcast. Today’s topic is clearly one that Bryce and Ben are both passionate about, as you will hear in this episode. From questioning the ‘affordability’ issue that we are facing, suggestions to help improve this, infrastructure developments that would benefit Australians, the political aspects of urban development and negative gearing, the importance of controlled immigration and population growth, to talking about Money SMARTS and discussing different household configurations; it will be particularly interesting for you all to listen to the different reasons and situations that could affect affordability for anyone, in any part of Australia.

Make sure you don’t miss this episode!
