What we want in a homeBy
ABC By Design
The housing priorities of Australians are changing, with more people valuing aspects of where they live than a big garden or a large block. A study from the Grattan Institute asked more than 700 city residents to state what was important to them when they thought of moving house. Some of the responses run counter to common assumptions. For instance, having a garden or being close to work were not in the top musts-haves for most people. A whole series of other characteristics of the house and its neighbourhood mattered more.
