BRISBANE residents are seeking out alternative housing to save money, as Brisbane’s house prices rise to six times the average income.
Results of this year’s Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey found Brisbane is severely unaffordable.
Young couple Charlotte Woff and Charles Huxley ( pictured left) are house sitting to save on rent in the hope that they will be able to buy their own first house by the end of the year.
