50 areas where you can make BIG profit

We reveal the 50 best areas for property investing during 2013 and beyond

There are many ways to identify a potential property hotspot but, when it comes to predicting long-term sustainable growth, the past does not always provide an accurate picture of the future.

Understanding a location’s history is certainly useful, but understanding current and future dynamics and how these will shape an area’s future performance is far more important.

Unlike many ‘hotspot’ reports that focus on what has already happened to justify investing in a certain area, you now have the unique opportunity to look into the future. In this exclusive insight into 50 of Australia’s best areas to invest in, you will be able to understand how and why each area has been included.

How markets were identified When gauging how ‘hot’ a market is, we don’t simply look at what has sold in the past six months or where the best rental yields are.

While these factors are definitely considered, there is a greater emphasis on 10 key indicators of growth, which allow the analysis of property markets to consider a wider range of data. These key indicators are based on current and future trends that were used to determine a score out of 100 for assessing an area’s potential as an investment destination.

Regardless of whether an area is within a fringe area of a major city or in a regional centre, the focus is on growth and areas where large scale infrastructure investments are underway.

This approach reviews private and public spending on infrastructure; population growth, key demographics, demand and supply dynamics; and, most importantly, ensures areas will have a strong and diverse economy that will support growth going into the future.

Something to consider Investing in a hotspot location does not guarantee success. Remember that this report is simply a guide to areas we believe have the potential to outperform the overall market.

Some areas are already ‘hot’. Others are included dependent on proposed developments or projected considerations.

Always perform your own due diligence. Research is essential. It is always a good idea to have your own conviction about a specific investment – take advice from trusted sources, but make your own decision. Only you know your goals, resources and tolerance of risk.
