Southbankers like to share

Southbankers like to share Image

By Andia May

Southbank has the third-highest proportion of share houses in the state, according to a recent analysis by website flatmates.com.au.

According to Flatmates, 13 per cent of Southbank dwellings are shared by people who previously did not know each other.

Southbank came in behind Melbourne CBD (19 per cent) and West Melbourne (14 per cent).

The analysis found that 26 postcodes across Australia had at least one in 10 dwellings that were being shared while a further 70 postcodes had between five and 10 per cent of dwellings.

Flatmates achieved the results through analysis of share home listings created in the past 12 months and private dwelling data from the Bureau of Statistics.
