Interest rates are higher and the cost of living has soared, but there are still some Aussie suburbs where potential buyers can grab a bargain.

Canstar’s Best Affordable Suburb Report identified the most affordable and promising locations for homebuyers and investors to purchase property in 2023.

“After 12 interest rate hikes, and possibly more to come, the only way for some homebuyers to buy property and still be able to service a mortgage is to quite simply borrow less,” Canstar editor-at-large Effie Zahos said.

“‘Impossible’, you may say, especially as housing values appear to be rebounding. However, there are plenty of suburbs and towns around the country with an affordable edge, and the purpose of this latest report is to help homebuyers and investors find them.”
