Darwin's housing market - a crisis for whom?

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

    Abstract

    RESEARCH AIM
    Examine aspects of the debate on housing affordability in Darwin. This research brief discusses some issues around housing affordability in Darwin. We examine recent increases in the cost of both buying and renting and temper these against rises in incomes. We advocate that there is not a generic `housing crisis’ and that such language may negatively impact on migration decisions. However, there may be a growing number of residents who are struggling to meet rising housing costs and these should be the focus of policy attention. This research brief draws on data provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as well as NT Government reports on housing in the Northern Territory.
