Founder and Executive Chairman of Aussie, Mr John Symond, said “Hobart posted a fall in dwelling values of almost 1 per cent over the last year and I would expect this decline to continue, which is great news for buyers looking to get into the market, especially first timers.
“There is money available for home lending, interest rates remain low and owner occupiers can still borrow up to 95 per cent of a property’s value. Our report provides a map of where the most affordable property is located, so these suburbs are a good place to start for anyone looking to buy on a budget,” he added.
