The five suburbs in capital cities predicted to see the highest growth in the next eight years have been revealed by onthehouse.com.au.
The suburbs were selected based on Residex’s eight year prediction model, with the data adjusted to focus on properties valued under $500,000 to make it more relevant for first time buyers.
The predictions come following research on the generational gap of home ownership, after onthehouse.com.au compared the best performing suburbs over the past three decades with predictions of long term future growth.
Onthehouse.com.au spokesperson John Edwards said the data shows that those who were prepared to invest in less popular areas with good growth potential back in the 80’s and 90’s would have been handsomely rewarded.
“As Gen Y start to enter the property market over the next few years, they will also need to balance their desire to live in a ‘popular’ area versus the long term value of their new home,” he said.
Below are the top five areas in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane that are predicted to grow in the next eight years, with the percentage that each is expected to grow.
