JMAC Tips: Use Data To Make Decisions

All growth suburbs have peaks and troughs.  Find a way of accessing data that others don’t have in order to make your decisions and gain an advantage.

Look for the following when identifying ‘hot’ suburbs to buy into:

        • Average “days on market” is dropping.
        • More properties are being auctioned.
        • Rising yields and rental returns.
