Tim Lawless, Research Director at RP Data, Identifying a suburb primed for capital growth

There are a few key factors you need to look out for in order to identify an area which is set to grow in value.

The best way for an investor to identify a suburb that's prime for capital growth is of course by doing their research. You can start by looking at the macro view. The macro view of a market place is always a good way to understand the broad direction of the market. But picking out a suburb that's ripe for investment, you really need to be doing-- rolling up your sleeves and doing the hard work. Which means checking out the rental yields, checking out rental demand, assessing what level of infrastructure is available or what level of infrastructure is in the pipeline and of course trying to find those suburbs that are often better value than their surrounding suburbs.
