Want to know which Sydney suburbs will exhibit the best capital growth in the future?

You know how they say “the best indicator of future performance is past performance.”

Now that’s not always correct, but obviously the longer a suburb has outperformed the more likely it will continue to at least perform well and at best remain a star performer.

In Aussie’s 25 year property trend report CoreLogic has identified the best performing suburbs for price growth over the past twenty five years, based on change in median prices between 1993 and 2018.

Across the Top 100 suburbs for price growth over the past twenty five years, 81 were located in a capital city and one quarter (25) were Sydney suburbs.

During the 25 year Sydney house prices rose 7.6% higher per annum on average, and in that time more and more Australians bought an investment property in Sydney.

In fact, at one stage, before APRA introduced its macro-prudential controls in 2014, close to 50% of all mortgages taken out in Sydney were for property investors.

No doubt that next twenty five years will show an equally diverse result when we examine a fresh set of data on Aussie’s 50th anniversary.
