Commuting nightmares prompt more families to rethink the dream of a big suburban home

Daily commuting times have risen in almost every capital city in Australia and as house prices continue to rise, experts say more families are opting to live in an apartment to beat the gridlock.

In 2016, more than 2.3 million Australians were living in apartments and parents with children made up almost 44 per cent of the families in apartments, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

The ABS also found nearly one in 10 children aged four or younger lived in an apartment.

Travis Pearson and his wife Kylie are one of those families after selling their home in Clayfield on Brisbane's northside four years ago and moving to an apartment at West End in the inner city.
