    Housing Cost (50%) and Peace and Quiet (38%) are the two biggest ones. Often are diametrically opposed!

    Transport seemed a bit lower than I expected. As well as being close to CBD.

    Most of my friends would much prefer to live well outside of the city in a quieter and cheaper place, but other commitments keep them closer to the city. As I'm getting older, can't say I disagree either :)

    I think proximity to CBD would be much higher in reality. :rolleyes:

    Given we deal with a fair mix of both home buyers and investors this wasn't as straightforward a survey to complete- after all, most of us have differing priorities :) However, after the obvious constraints of budget, the overriding factor most of our buyers indicate as being most important is lifestyle ie: neighbourhood, liveability, community, streetscape and a 'pleasant' place to live. This can, of course, encompass a variety of preferences, related to demographic, age, interests, family type/size. It's also important to realise that, in this day and age of mobile workplaces, being as close to a CBD isn't as high a priority as it was 10-20 years ago. Transport is, of course, still an important factor to many buyers but not as much as lifestyle/neighbourhood... perhaps we deal with an excess no. of multi-car families!:D
