    DescriptionReal estate is booming in some coastal and 'tree-change' areas, with house prices increasing at a faster rate than in the cities, making rentals less affordable and available.

    So what does that do to these regional cities and towns, and the people who live there, and is this just a flash in the pan, or the beginning of a long term trend for people to move away from Australia's largest cities?
