Backwater Real Estate Market Outlook

In Backwater there has been a history of lower than average prices and demand, offering opportunities for investors or first home owners, especially in the context of the growth in working from home. Low average incomes in Backwater is reflected in smaller and lower quality accommodation. Over time this may change providsing long-term returns but in the short to medium term, prices are likely to be less than state averages. Low average earnings from people in Backwater leads to lower quality housing which also negatively impacts the provision of facilities. As a consequence this area is often seen as less desirable, with lower quality of housing and slower price growth. Low population density implies low demand and limits housing choices and price increases. Could be a good entry point for first home buyers needing to somehow get into the market.

Most people are employed in service sectors with a higher than average proportion being able to work from home. This may incease demand over the medium term.
