  2. Central Coast’s property growth has seen substantial gains. Looking at HtAG’s GRC (Growth Rate Cycle), Centra Cost has grown on an average 8% annually in the last 15 years. Currently it is experiencing its highest rate of growth with the YoY (year on year) growth rate change of plus 13.74%. Considering that its typical price is still below a 1 million, these statistics highlight Central Coast Council as a ‘blue chip’ investment area. Central Coast has the perfect combination—low entry point (in comparison to other Greater Sydney areas) and high capital growth.

    Past performance of the area is not indicative of future performance, however this is where HtAG’s forecasting feature comes handy. Looking at the GRC forecast chart, Central Coast is projecting circa 11% growth in 2022 and 6% growth in 2023. Although these figures suggest that Central Coast is positioned for another 2 years of considerable growth, the confidence of the aforementioned forecasts are in the very low category with an error rate of 16.58%. Considering the error rate, Central Coast capital growth can fall anywhere within the -6% to 27%. This suggests that investors should take other aspects into consideration before making a decision to invest in Central Cost. Some of the aspects the team at HtAG uses to classify the investment potential of the area are as follows:

    • Below Zero rule: has the areas growth fallen below zero, that is, has the area previously experienced negative capital growth. Looking at the GRC graph, Central Coast LGA has never experiences negative growth in the last 15 years suggesting that its projected growth will more than likely be in the positive category.
    • Are there any submarkets within the Council in question that have a better error rate: Luckily, Central Coast has 7 suburbs with high confidence forecast with the error rate ranging between 2.33% to 2.91%. Furthermore, these suburbs (Tacoma, NSW 2259; Blackwall, NSW 2256; Daleys Point, NSW 2257; Wadalba, NSW 2259; Norah Head, NSW 2263; Chain Valley Bay, NSW 2259; Horsfield Bay, NSW 2256) are all projecting above 5% growth with some suburbs projecting between 12-18% growth.
    • What are the other metrics for Central Coast and its suburbs telling: the team at HtAG is always looking at metric in unison meaning that before a decision is made, clients and employees are encouraged to consider all aspects of the area in question. For example, Days on Market (DoM) feature is suggesting that some suburbs with the high confidence feature have a lower days on market (how long a property remains advertised for sale before it is purchased) than others which further narrows the search. Combining the confidence feature with the DoM feature, customers are in a position to narrow from 7 high confidence areas down to 2 high confidence features with a low DoM figure of 17 days (Tacoma, NSW 2259; Norah Head, NSW 2263)

    Overall, Central Coast property growth has seen substantial gains in some areas. Customers are however urged to do a more detailed analysis of the Council to find suburbs with lower risk profiles.
