Enlighten, the Night Noodle Markets and Canberra Balloon Spectacular – in recent weeks we’ve enjoyed some of the ACT’s most loved events that have put our little capital on the map.
The federal government’s ban on large gatherings means that there’s a hold on Canberra’s colourful events calendar but that hasn’t stopped the city’s snowballing appeal as the very liveable city that will pleasantly surprise buyers looking to call it home.
Our recent February auction clearance rate proves that being the highest month in 13 years, and we also recorded the highest growth of all states in the total value of new home loans granted to first-home buyers at a whopping 85 per cent in January.
I encourage you to boot up the Allhomes app and browse through our gorgeous trove of homes for sale, some of which you can virtually inspect during open times via agents offering Facetime tours.
Enjoy this week’s selection of the best homes on the market from the comfort of your own home:
