On an upwards trajectory, these young professionals and singles are earning high incomes, and due to their high levels of post-graduate education these income levels are expected to continue to increase. With a significant amount of first home buyers, this Type is likely to be in the consideration stage for some major life expenses such as a furniture, appliances and even automotive.

Determined Suburbans are a mix of young, educated professional couples and singles who are new to the property market. They likely work in the CBD and the long-term priorities for the next couple of years revolve around ‘big ticket’ life milestones. At the younger end, they are aged between 25–34 working in technical fields or the sciences. They are subscribers to the thought of continuous learning, with many having sought out post-graduate qualifications leading to high personal incomes more than $150,000 p.a.

Determined Suburbans seek out up-and-coming suburbs. Being inner city and in proximity to the CBD isn’t their main driver, instead they are attracted to finding the right balance of relative proximity and affordability. It’s this balance which leads to them turning to public transport and riding into work over the gridlock of rush-hour. Residences are typically townhouses and semi-detached houses on medium sized blocks of 200–400m2. Popular suburbs for this Type are; Williamstown, Alphington and Essendon in Melboune, and Ashfield and North Ryde in Sydney. Despite a lower entry cost into these areas, mortgage costs are still substantial sitting around $4,000 a month.

Experiencing different cultures also appeals, whether that’s sampling international beers, travel, or from a culinary perspective. Due to packed schedules, arbitrary big nights out with friends have now made way for more subdued planned private functions, however, socialising remains a priority.

For this Type, technology is their go to, they utilise their laptops and tablets for their news-fix. Podcasts provide a great avenue to satisfy their desire for self-development and streaming music means they have control of the content that engage them. Outdoor advertising works well and aligns to their active lifestyles. Determined Suburbans are heavily influenced by word-of-mouth and the recommendations of their inner circle, which make social media and generating talk-ability a big opportunity for advertisers.
