Todd Polke, Research Director at Positive Real Estate, How to identify a property hotspot

When finding a hotspot in the market, you've got to understand that what you're looking for is actually the exact same factors as what provide an amazing, fundamental long term investment as well. So here are the key things we've got to focus on looking at: What's the infrastructure going into the local area? Who are the market movers? So when someone like Bunnings or Woolworths or Lenley's go into an area they've done a significant amount of research to decide that that's where they actually want to put a piece of infrastructure, which is going to add a lot of value to that local economy. It's almost a bit of a self fulfilling prophecy. So infrastructure, the market movers, what's the populations growth? The level of supply and demand factors, and the level of future release of potential development sites that are going to come onto the market in the future. Because you always want to have that constrained, underlying supply and demand in balance.
