Australia’s housing affordability crisis is now so critical, real estate more than an hour’s drive from the centre of major capitals Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane is typically costing seven figures.

In late 2019, beachside homes with backyards on the NSW Central Coast, mid north coast, pockets of the Sunshine Coast and Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula had median prices under $600,000.

But now houses in these areas are typically selling for more than $1million as low interest rates and and a surge in people working from home spurs demand for homes in areas offering a good lifestyle.
