There's been no shortage of record-breaking sales in the ACT in recent weeks but there are certainly still homes on the market for those with more modest budgets.
With a budget of $750,000, Canberra buyers can secure a modern apartment in Kingston or a three-bedroom home for those willing to venture beyond the city suburbs.
Whether you're searching for a family home or a city apartment to suit your active lifestyle, these are five options on the market right now.
1/78-82 Pennington Crescent, Calwell
A three-bedroom house in Calwell, located in the Tuggeranong district, has been inundated with buyer interest since it was listed on the market one week ago.
Downsizers, families and first-home buyers have had their eyes on 1/78-82 Pennington Crescent for its well-appointed layout, recent renovations and position inside a leafy complex.
Christine Bassingthwaighte of Blackshaw Manuka said the complex was located close to shops and public transport.
"Without being a big complex and no major infrastructure keeps the levies low, which I think is really important in comparison to some of the huge levies that are being paid these days," she said.
