Property Credit unveiled the top 20 locations for Australians looking to upsize to a more spacious home.

The list includes suburbs across Australia that are arranged based on starting budget, affordability, and suburb scores.

The suburb score ranks suburbs based on a combination of key variables — the higher the score is, the more likely upsizers are going to benefit from moving into the suburb.

The factors involved in calculating the suburb score are inventory levels, price changes, number of median household income required to purchase a home, and proportion of properties fully owned.

Property Credit CEO Giordano Stepancic said the list aims to provide upsizers options supported by key market metrics.

“It's not just about bigger homes — it's about finding communities where families can flourish, both socially and financially,” he said.

Here are the top 20 suburbs:

Important Information and Comparison Rate Warning

Base criteria of: a $400,000 loan amount, variable, fixed, principal and interest (P&I) home loans with an LVR (loan-to-value) ratio of at least 80%. However, the ‘Compare Home Loans’ table allows for calculations to be made on variables as selected and input by the user. Some products will be marked as promoted, featured or sponsored and may appear prominently in the tables regardless of their attributes. All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the product provider’s website. Monthly repayments, once the base criteria are altered by the user, will be based on the selected products’ advertised rates and determined by the loan amount, repayment type, loan term and LVR as input by the user/you. *The Comparison rate is based on a $150,000 loan over 25 years. Warning: this comparison rate is true only for this example and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
