As demand climbs in the ACT, this suburb has been riding the momentum by keeping supply low in order to spur competition – an effective tactic as house prices rose by 5.1% over the previous year leading up to July 2017. Even with the median value surpassing $500,000, the average discount rate is a very low 2.3%. Demand could be in part due to investors coming in as well, attracted by the high average discount rate of 4.6%
