A week into 2015, many people are still likely to be pondering what the next 12 months has in store and how they can improve their lifestyle.
In many cases, this involves getting their finances in check, as revealed through the latest NAB figures.
The bank revealed that 31 per cent of people want to save more money this year, while just under a quarter (24 per cent) are hoping to make fewer impulse purchases.
It also appears that real estate ambitions are moving up the agenda for Australians, which may see more people deciding to invest in property in Carlton.
NAB chief economist Alan Oster explained: "In addition to saving, more 30-49 year olds are resolving to pay off their mortgage and loans and change or improve their work situation, while younger Australians are most keen to invest more."
With property prices continuing to rise in Sydney and its many suburbs, now could be the ideal time to start thinking about the future and what capital gains can be achieved.
