Property location cost calculator

When buying a property or deciding between multiple properties it is important to take into account the location of the properties in relation to your primary destinations such as work, family and recreation. While a property closer to a major city may be more expensive on paper you may find that when travel costs are taken into account it may be a lower cost option. This property location calculator will help quantify the additional costs (or savings) you will have depending on the extra distances.

Well done, great calculator!

But to add up all costs you would need to also include the difference in the property values between the two locations, and what that meant to take on the extra debt and interest from one over the other.

And how does it calculate the impact on others, which is the first input value, when it is highly unlikely the 'others' are going to exactly the same places of work.

Either way, it would show that buying in the CBD to work in the suburbs is more expensive than the opposite.

Well done, great calculator!
