Australia’s leading property investment magazine Your Investment Property revealed the most anticipated and influential Top Suburbs 100 report – an annual guide for the best areas to invest in for growth and rental returns. Selected from more than 15,000 suburbs across Australia, this year’s Top 100 Suburbs list consists of areas that are expected to see strong growth in value and rental yields over the near to medium term.

NSW was the clear winner among the states with 32 suburbs on the list, followed by Queensland with 23 suburbs, as confidence in the market improves on the back of the resources boom. Western Australia dominated the top end of the list with six suburbs in the top 10, and Perth was the leading capital city in the rankings. Pole position this year was taken by South Brisbane.

Editor of Your Investment Property Nila Sweeney said the suburbs featured in this year’s Top 100 Suburb report present some great value buys for investors.

“South Brisbane secured the top spot because of its tight supply and strong demand,” said Sweeney. “This potent combination is further bolstered by the suburb's solid fundamentals. Around the country, the suburbs that made the Top 100 were comparatively more affordable than neighbouring areas. They are also in high demand and have a relatively low supply in addition to having excellent fundamentals."

The Your Investment Property Top 100 is the pre-eminent guide to the areas with the best investment prospects in Australia and the only hot spot report that focuses on the property investment sweet-spot: $500k and under.

"This price range is proven to deliver the highest return on investment and also attracts the highest demand from buyers,” said Sweeney. “It’s affordable, less risky and requires less leverage. It’s also easier to offload if you have to exit the market in a hurry.”

The Top 100 Suburb report is also the only hot spot list that actually ranks each suburb based on their capital growth and rental return potential. It showcases in-depth analysis of the supply and demand situation for each suburb in addition to analysing the economic fundamentals that trigger price and rental growth. All in all the Annual Suburb Guide provides the most comprehensive suburb analysis focusing on both short and long-term performance as well as growth projections.

Where each of the Top 100 are (by state):
• 32 suburbs from NSW
• 23 from Queensland
• 20 from Western Australia
• 10 from South Australia
• 9 from Victoria
• 4 from ACT
• 1 from NT
• 1 from Tasmania
