Just 7km from Hobart but set in a landscape of mountains and rivers, Mornington is growing in popularity as buyers realise the value they can get for their money.

With a low house median of $283,000, Mornington is an affordable suburb that returns an excellent yield of 5.8% – virtually the same rate of return as neighbouring suburbs Bellerive and Howrah, which have median house values in the mid-$400,000s and $368,000 respectively.

This is likely to see house-hunters searching out cheaper dwellings and rents in nearby suburbs, and Mornington  ts the bill for both historic capital growth and yield.

A vacancy rate of 1.15% lands Mornington in  fth place in Tasmania for lowest vacancy rates.

The suburb appeals to families, and three-bedroom houses are in highest demand.

Newer homes on eastern streets are at the higher end of the median, while high-set houses have mountain views.
