Australians are still putting personal finances first when looking to purchase a property, with many believing the potential for capital growth a key factor in where and what to buy.

The CoreLogic RP Data Nine Rewards Consumer sentiment survey found 52% of respondents considered personal finances the primary driver behind what to purchase, with 14% swayed by interest rates and 12% primarily concerned with job security. Housing supply levels or government incentives were not an important factor.

The survey noted the personal financial situation category includes many of the other aspects surveyed, leading it to rate highly.
