Apartments v. Houses
"The apartment market is not just more affordable to enter than the detached housing market but apartments are growing in prevalence in inner city areas and along the transport spines of many large cities. These unit markets are typically located close to major working nodes and nearby to entertainment and dining facilities as well as being close to public transport amenity. This week’s Property Pulse looks at the median ‘value’ of houses and units across suburbs nationally and determines the suburbs where you can make the greatest savings if you choose to purchase a unit rather than a house."
