Description: This report shows that Australian households have adapted to poorer housing affordability by borrowing more, deferring home purchase, switching into cheaper accommodation (such as apartments and townhouses) and moving to more affordable locations. Despite this, low-income and single-income working age households are increasingly being pushed out of the home purchase market.
