Despite recent gloomy headlines about property market activity, new data shows the number of active homebuyers remains high – and they’re particularly eager to purchase in certain areas.
Analysis by PropTrack of the search habits of potential buyers on realestate.com.au has shown there are plenty of suburbs where demand is elevated.
And those pockets that are either affordable, offer a scenic lifestyle, or are conveniently located near sought-after amenities are proving to be particularly popular.
“While buyer demand has softened from the record highs seen 12 months ago, the level of activity among buyers at the moment is still very healthy,” PropTrack senior economist Anne Flaherty said.
In fact, it remains well above levels seen before the onset of the Covid pandemic, she pointed out.
Across the country, whether after a house in a leafy suburb or a unit close to the city, there are high numbers of would-be buyers looking for their next home, the data shows.
And these are some of the most dominant trends currently at play.
