News of volatility in Chinese real estate companies, including at the country’s second-largest developer, Evergrande, could affect the rest of the economy, according to S&P Global Ratings.

The Melbourne, Australia, Suburbs That Top Agency’s Ranking for Livability and Affordability

The Melbourne, Australia, suburbs of Point Cook, Keilor East and Greensborough have been deemed the most liveable and affordable, according to a report this week by PRD Real Estate. Homes in those suburbs range from A$702,000 (US$500,000) to A$970,000, compared to A$1.16 million for a house within about 12 miles of central Melbourne. Still, each of the three suburbs have also seen double-digit price growth over the last year and there’s no sign of a reversal in the near future, according to PRD chief economist Dr. Diaswati Mardiasmo. “The chances of continued buying in these areas make them quite bulletproof,” she said.
