However, regional areas can also come with their own set of risks such as lower demand and limited tenant pool, leading to longer vacancy periods and potentially lower rental income. Additionally, regional areas may not experience the same level of capital

Why North Adelaide is marching to its own property drum

The plethora of property metrics being published lately is showing some stark differences between locations around the nation.
