The most affordable suburbs across Australia have been revealed, as property prices ease across the country.

CoreLogic’s 2022 Best of the Best report highlighted the resilience of more affordable property markets, as well as the declines experienced by more expensive suburbs.

“More expensive markets tended to see sharper declines, while the more affordable segment of the market - where buyers typically do not have to extend themselves as much to buy into - saw greater resilience to increases in interest rates,” CoreLogic head of research Eliza Owen said.

Across the capital cities, suburbs in Sydney’s city and inner south, northern beaches and eastern suburbs saw some of the largest house and unit value declines.

On the other end of the scale, Adelaide suburbs dominated the list for the strongest growth in values.
