Making Better Places
The Henry Halloran Trust has released an expression of interest for a new research grant targeted at Early Career Researchers.
The National Apartment Consumer Guide
Purchasing a property is often the single biggest investment people make in their lives. 'Location, location, location' is the age-old mantra drummed into us when it comes to this important decision. In some capital cities the reality may be more like 'price, price, price'. But are location and price all that matters? Clearly, there are other crucial factors to be considered prior to purchase. The Henry Halloran Trust is currently undertaking research to wrap this knowledge into a user-friendly toolkit for new buyers. Key factors such as orientation and aspect, design functionality, and issues impacting the health outcomes of residents will form part of the material The Guide will provide. The Guide will not only contain an Informed Buyers Checklist, but also a Visual Study of existing market stock illustrating how these key factors can be identified in floor plans by potential purchasers.
The National Apartment Consumer Guide is due to be released in September 2020. The research is being undertaken by Jasmine Palmer for the cities of Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Lisa King will study both the Sydney and Brisbane markets.
