Capital Growth and Yield Ranking

Median Price Forecasts

We use a machine-learning algorithm that learns off a combination of historical and recent — days and weeks — sales data to forecast future prices at city, council (LGA) and suburb levels. Our forecasts are produced continuously and published on a fortnightly basis for 5 capital cities, 400 council areas and 6,390 suburbs Australia-wide.

Here are some of the previous forecasts our model produced. Notice that the model is trained to predict the actual position in the market 2 years into the future. Although the forecast and actual median price curves don’t always align, the end-point result is guranteed to fall within the 1-10% error range in areas with “high” and “medium” confidence levels. Our median price and rent projections have higher degree of accuracy in LGAs exhibiting high volume of sales (40 per quarter or more) and always adhere to confidence intervals defined by our model.

We collect new sales data on a weekly basis. The delay in most industry property reports is at least 3 months. In contrast to that, because of constant inflow of fresh data, HtAG’s view of the market is near real-time. We normally have the current median price and corresponding forecasts modelled and published 1 month into the calendar quarter. For instance, Q4 data has been made available in the first week of November.

Property Market Cycles

Australian property market cycles differ across states and capital cities. Whereas most investors are aware of price cyclicity at this “low resolution” view of the market, little is known about how property cycles manifest themselves at the council and suburb level.

Because we analyse cycles at their most granular (suburb) level, our reports pinpoint areas that move out of cycle within a city or regional area. This information is of great value to any savvy investor looking for a perfect market entry timing and is very popular with entrepreneurs employing the renovate and sell strategy. Our reports also evince areas that are not subjected to negative price movement in the downturn and are great safe haven investments for the buy and hold, negative gearing and positive gearing strategists.

For example, the first chart on the right illustrates cycles in 31 Melbourne areas for the house market segment. Despite the downturn, 3 areas remain in the positive growth region (above the horizontal 0 axis red line). One area shows out of cycle behavior. Sign up to find out what all the charted areas are.

Similar to Melbourne, cyclical patterns are seen in other capital cities, with Adelaide and Perth exhibiting at least 2 localised markets with opposite periodicity. Note that cycles presented here are for the house market segment. Sign up to get access to both house and unit market segment reports.
