Suburbs in Tuggeranong have emerged as Canberra’s most popular for families with children, according to an exclusive report compiled by Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans and CoreLogic.
The Aussie/CoreLogic Most Popular Suburbs for Families report found that nine of the top 20 suburbs are located in Tuggeranong, followed by seven in Gungahlin and four in Belconnen.
The study, which took into account census data, median house and unit values, average land area and sales over the 2017 calendar year, found Bonner is the most popular in the city, with 66.2 per cent of households comprising families with children.
Chief Executive of Aussie, Mr James Symond, said “Families are being attracted to the relatively new housing and lower prices in the city’s outer regions, compared with suburbs closer to the city centre.
“The most affordable suburb in the top 20 is Macgregor, with a median house value of just under $518,000, while Nicholls is the most expensive suburb with a median house value of $857,000.”
