A new report from OnTheHouse has released new predictions data presenting the top 10 suburbs nationwide with opportunities for residential buyers.
Unsurprisingly, New South Wales dominated the top 10 list, while Victoria didn’t scrape in a single mention.
Based on rental and capital returns, outer city regions were found to provide the best investment opportunities, explained OnTheHouse consulting analyst John Edwards.

“Buying in a regional area might not be for everyone but with strong predicted growth and high rental yields, it’s certainly an option to consider. With more expensive areas, such as Sydney, outer city regions can be much more affordable – pair that with strong growth and it could be a good fit for investors wanting to get good rental returns and capital growth over time,” he said.
To come up with the list they looked at five year capital growth predictions, industry surroundings, confidence ratings and employment opportunities.
“Investors should be looking for locations that have good employment opportunities, education options, are well connected to transport and have planned developments in the area that will attract the population. The latest Best Rent Report highlights 58 areas around Australia that meet this criteria, each offering returns of better than 10% per annum,” he said.
He also urged investors to look at data in conjunction with local knowledge.
“Our research draws on industry and environmental surroundings and employment opportunities, which will influence property prices. These areas are the suburbs we think will perform well. However, it’s crucial that buyers do their own personal research and build on this statistical information.”
