With affordable prices and incentives to make it easier, buying a home is not just a dream in The Territory. It can be a reality.
Housing styles vary greatly in Australia's Northern Territory (NT), from large houses and apartments to more compact living.
In the tropical north elevated houses with louvered windows and ceiling fans are common, while in the south there are more traditional Australian house designs. These are typically ground-level brick houses with wide shady verandas to keep the house cool.
House and unit prices differ across the NT. For more information about housing costs go to the Real Estate Institute of the Northern Territory website
