The suburbs where it’s become much harder to find a house

Australia’s labor culture has changed since the beginning of the pandemic, and so has our property preferences.

As many office employees work from home, demand for seaside and nature-friendly suburbs is skyrocketing, especially in rural areas.

However, this growth in demand has outpaced the supply of properties, making it extremely difficult to secure housing in some suburbs.

To figure out which suburbs are becoming more difficult for buyers, we looked at the suburbs where the total number of properties available for sale at realestate.com.au has declined the most since pre-crisis to the present.

Especially in rural Queensland, the number of homes for sale has dropped significantly compared to the pre-COVID period.

This is due to the record level of interstate travel to Queensland where Australians seek sea and tree changes at a more affordable cost than major capitals such as Melbourne and Sydney.

Locations such as Moffatdale, Hideaway Bay and Rainbow Beach have seen significant declines in housing supply over the last two years.

In the provinces of New South Wales, the number of properties for sale has also declined.

People in the state were looking for a suburb surrounded by the natural environment, offering a spacious life without having to commute to work every day.

More insights from a team of PropTrack experts:

Pokolbin, Lithgow and Long Beach have become the hardest places to find a home in the suburbs of New South Wales.

Rural areas were most affected by low housing availability, but suburbs within metropolitan areas that share similar characteristics felt the same.

The rise of telecommuting means that people don’t have to commute to CBD. As a result, in rural towns like Lithgow, there is an influx of new residents seeking space and tranquility.Photo: Getty


North Dandarap in West Australia, Thirlmere in New South Wales, and Sorrel in Tasmania, which are near the coast and mountains but close enough to their respective capitals, are also more difficult to obtain than before the pandemic. did.

Demand for suburbs in the region will continue to grow over the next few years as urban suburbs become less affordable and remote work is integrated into our lifestyle.

The only problem is some.
