        With the current spending and budget trends in Australia, it makes sense to at least consider investing in a property outside the city, specifically in country towns. Income stats show that Australian homeowners coming from double-income earning households spend more than 29% of their monthly income on mortgage payments. With the increasing cost of housing, people are now over-extending their finances and becoming subject to mortgage stress. Some even end up spending nearly 45% of their income on their loan repayments.


        Compared to the big cities, properties in country towns are significantly more affordable. You can expect to pay a reasonable amount of money and get a decent-sized home nestled in a more rural setting. Whereas $600-650,000 might get you a one-bedroom unit in Sydney, the same amount could buy you a three or four-bedroom house on a spacious plot of land in a country town.

          Although, I'm planning to invest in Mildura as it seems a low population about 53,015 and cheap city to live right now. A long term as well as secured for future investment and maturity up-to 6-8 years. I must say real estate industry is being competitive to find out best spots to invest.
