Have you ever wondered why some regions have only grown marginally whilst others have boomed?

In this Suburb Trends report for September 2021, we’re joined by Kent Lardner as we look at where prices are moving across the country - whether up or down - and why they vary. We also dive deep into “starfish” suburbs, the rise of rentvesting, the possible exodus of big-city dwellers to regional areas and more!
