Which is the best way to buy your house?
In the past few weeks, many of you have sent us your favourite home-related stories.
Here are our top picks: What’s the best time to buy a home?
It depends on where you live.
We looked at data from Domain Group and found that house prices in the major Australian cities, including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, have increased by around 25% over the past decade.
The biggest growth has been in the suburbs.
The median price of a house in Melbourne rose by 12% between the last financial year and the first quarter of 2020.
It rose from $1.7 million to $2.6 million, or almost $8,000 a square foot.
Sydney’s median price increased by 15% over that period, from $3.8 million to more than $5 million a square metre.
The average price of house in Perth increased by more than 20% between January and March, from just under $4.5 million to almost $7 million.
What are the biggest home prices in Australia?
The median Sydney house price was $1 million in the first three months of this year.
In Melbourne, it rose by almost $2 million in a span of six months.
In Sydney, the median house price in February rose by more in a year than it did in the whole of 2016.
In Perth, the increase in median house prices was less than one-third of that, by less than 2%.
What are some key factors that affect house prices?
The biggest factor influencing house prices is supply, according to the data.
The supply of homes is rising, with a huge number of people moving into Sydney and Perth.
But prices are also falling, partly because of the recent housing boom.
That means prices are rising faster than supply.
“It’s not a matter of supply, but demand,” says Robyn Smith, senior research fellow at the Australian Centre for Housing Economics.
The big drivers of house prices are: land prices and land prices, and land-related prices, like land taxes.
These are two of the biggest drivers of housing supply.
Land tax is a land value tax, which is levied on the value of land that’s used to build homes.
It’s used for many things, including infrastructure.
It helps finance infrastructure such as roads and bridges.
But it also affects the price of housing.
Land taxes are a tax on land that can’t be sold for profit.
They’re also a form of land transfer tax, where people can move their property onto other land without paying the tax.
That can create problems for many people, particularly people who live in areas where they don’t own the land.
Land transfer tax is usually levied at a higher rate than land tax, so people who earn more can pay more.
It also affects people who are living in rented accommodation, which has an extra tax on it.
Land prices are a mix of land and houses, according the data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
The most recent data shows the median Sydney land price is $853,000.
This is slightly higher than the median Melbourne land price, which was $837,000 in the last quarter.
The second most expensive Sydney land is the $1,050,000 Melbourne suburb of Richmond, which includes Westbank and the surrounding suburbs.
That land price includes the Richmond City and Country Park, which sold for $3 million in March.
The fourth most expensive Melbourne land is in the inner-west suburb of Penrith, which sells for $1m.
Land sales are a major source of supply to the market, but they are also a major driver of house price growth.
The number of houses sold to buyers each year has increased by about 10% since the late 1980s, the data shows.
But that doesn’t mean house prices will continue to rise.
A house price boom has happened a lot since the 1980s.
This was driven by a boom in land prices.
But the number of new houses sold in the past year has been about the same as it was in the 1990s.
If you look at the last three years, there has been no house price increase.
And that’s not necessarily good news.
It means there’s not enough new supply to absorb a house price spike, which could slow down house price rises in the future.
What about housing affordability?
Housing affordability has been the big focus of discussion over the last few months.
Many commentators have argued that rising house prices would lead to unaffordable prices.
That is partly true, but there’s a lot of room for house prices to fall in the next five years.
That’s because the supply of housing is rising and affordability is falling.
Housing affordability is a complex issue, says Smith.
“We can’t simply look at it as affordability,” she says.
“Affordability is something that comes down to the supply and demand side.”
It’s important to understand that house price inflation is driven by supply
