The number of people within the average household is shrinking, while homes are becoming larger. Larger homes are a leading contributor to housing unaffordability in Australia. We share tips about affordable housing on the Sunshine Coast.
What does it mean?
Affordable housing is when people are able to rent or purchase a home within their financial means. Often people try to ensure they maintain their chosen lifestyle, while taking advantage of the best opportunities available. Unfortunately, affordable housing on the Sunshine Coast is difficult to obtain and seeking traditional homes could lead to compromising key values, such as location and materials, to meet a buyer’s budget.

Luckily, sustainability is a trend that is growing and offers an alternative option without the need to sacrifice your lifestyle. But what does this look like? By improving the sustainability of your building you increase the affordability across the lifespan of the home. Affordable housing on the Sunshine Coast could be as simple as a smaller, smarter floor plan which is a way to reduce initial and ongoing costs, or using an innovative design to make your home energy and water efficient.
