Real estate educator and speaker, Rick Otton, has analysed the data from the Australian property market for the first three months of the year and delivered his verdict on where buyers can find good prospects in the East Coast capital cities.
“Even when house and apartment prices are rising, there are still individual suburbs that outperform, and the data from real estate website RP Data to March this year really shows this” said Mr. Otton.
“In Sydney, you can pretty much throw a dart at a map and hit a hot spot. But the really incredible rises were found in North Sydney, Manly Vale and Burwood. The other notable thing about those three suburbs was that over 30 houses were sold in the first three months of the year and that the median value of those homes was in excess of a million dollars,” Mr. Otton said.
“Melbourne used to be a bit of a dark spot as far as property investing went. Even as late as 10 years ago, no one wanted to live in the inner suburbs,” commented Mr. Otton. “But the success of the postcode 3000 campaign and the revamping of the inner-city means that Melbourne has really caught up to Sydney. This is especially true in suburbs like Prahran, South Yarra and Hawthorn East, all of which have seen price rises of 30% or more in the last year,” said Mr. Otton.
“Up north in Brisbane, house prices gains have been slightly lower than the southern states, which suggests that there’s still some upside in them,” said Mr. Otton. “Suburbs near the Brisbane River such as Hamilton, Hawthorne and Bulimba have seen price gains for their homes of between 18% and 35%.”
“What all of this shows is that there are always standout performers and other slower moving suburbs in any city. Investors who are able to harness creative strategies to invest in attractive and in-demand suburbs are the ones who will do well. With strong research coupled with my proven methods, Australian property investors can really build up their property investments and the value of their portfolios in any market."
