As interest rates go down, Australian property prices rise. But this doesn’t mean you’ve been priced out of the market, there are still suburbs in all Australian capitals that are affordable.

According to CoreLogic RP Data all capital cities have suburbs that are more affordable than others. This is based on median selling prices for homes and units.

Sydney’s Most Affordable Suburbs

The most affordable inner city suburb, for homes, in Sydney is Turrella with a median price of $839,676. Eastlakes was the most affordable suburb for units with a median of $484,487.

For first home buyers who cannot afford a house, but want to live closer to the CBD, units offer a more affordable option. Unit purchasing represents a cheaper alternative to buying a home, and allows first home buyers to gain entry into the property market.

In Melbourne, the most affordable suburbs are situated in the southern areas. Bellfield represents the most affordable area for houses with a median of $582,573. Carlton was the suburb with the best median price for units.
