August is here and the wattle is beginning to bloom, a sure sign that spring is just around the corner. The Australian economy has been a bit slower to spring to life, but there are some green shoots.
Housing affordability continues to be a BBQ stopper in Australia’s backyards, whether you’re a young person wanting to get a foot on the property ladder, a parent worried that your children will never be able to afford their own home or a retiree wanting to downsize but unable to find suitable housing. In this snapshot, we take the broad view of the housing affordability issue and look at government measures to tackle the problem. We also look at goals and how to make them into reality.
