The Aussie/RPData Top 100 list provides a statistical view on the suburbs across Australia’s metropolitan housing markets and regional housing markets that are likely to be the best suited for family living. The results show a great deal of variability from region to region, however it is those suburbs that show a blend of housing affordability, large block sizes and amenity that rise to the top of the list.
While many families may aspire to live close to the city or coastline, the reality is that across the capital cities, it is generally those suburbs located in the middle to outer ring housing markets where the large proportion of results fall. These markets tend to offer more affordable housing options that are located on larger blocks of land compared with suburbs closer to the CBD. The level of amenity and proximity to essential services such as schools and health care also play a large role in the analysis.
