  1. Are you a real estate professional with an extensive knowledge of the Ipswich City property market? Our members would love to hear from you! What is the market outlook for Ipswich City LGA from your point of view? Share your insights in a comment below.

  2. what are the basis of forecasts – is there a rationale available – I understand its based on ML but reason will help solidify the forecasts?

    • Our algorithm learns off a combination of historical and recent — days and weeks — sales data to produce forecasts. In addition prices in neigbouring localities and/or referent LGAs are inputed as regressors into our model for increased accuracy.

  3. also market cycle says its peak (and figure shows massive drop) but projected capital growth is +5.08% over the next 2 years for Camira QLD – isent that conflicting info?

    • Hi Anubhav,

      You have correctly pointed out that the projected capital growth for Camira is 5.08% and that the market cycle position is peak.

      Our market cycle graphs plot the YoY rate of change and not the actual median price. So the decreasing values on the graph indicate that the rate of change will remain positive but significantly lower than the growth in preceding years, amounting to 5.08% 2 years from now.

      Hope this makes sense, let me know if you’d like me to elaborate further.

    • Hi Yiheyis,

      Springfield Central is located in this LGA (Ipswich City). Unfortunately there isn’t enough historical data for us to produce price / rent values for this suburb at this stage.

      As there are limited residential areas in Springfield Central I suggest gauging the property market in nearby suburbs i.e. Springfield.
