Regional centres ripe for investment in 2019



Your Investment Property’s Annual Top 100 Suburbs Guide has just been released, detailing the best property markets for buyers looking to invest in 2019

Sydney and Melbourne’s property markets may be correcting but it’s far from game over for investors looking to make a profit in the new year. Your Investment Property magazine has just released its Annual Top 100 Suburbs Guide, an in-depth ranking of the best property markets for 2019. 

  

Using the latest data from CoreLogic together with input from a panel of experts, the Guide ranks suburbs based on key factors such as affordability, demand, demographics and growth prospects. And the message to homebuyers is to look outside the big cities for the profit opportunities. 

  

“There are some major regional centres on the experts’ radar for 2019 – places like Ballarat, Wagga Wagga, Cairns and the Sunshine Coast,” said YIP editor Sarah Megginson. 

  

“The median price in most of these areas is around or below $500,000. This provides a real opportunity for investors to take advantage of an affordable property market that is expected to grow,” she said.
