Finding the Perfect Property Hotspot

We want you to feel confident about our skills as buyers agents, and we believe that helping you understand our services in a simple, clear manner is a great way to do just that. 

Before we explain how our licenced property buyer’s agents laser-target growing hotspots, let us explain exactly what a property hotspot is. 

A property hotspot is an area or suburb that’s set to experience capital growth in the near future, despite potentially underperforming in the past or at the present moment. These properties also tend to be priced lower than those in surrounding areas. In simple terms, our team will help you identify and purchase properties in neighbourhoods before they experience a capital growth phase.

How Does an Area Become A Hotspot?

In the traditional sense, a hotspot area tends to be located near other popular, thriving areas, despite not being as popular just yet. When these popular areas become too expensive for buyers to break into, they tend to look to nearby areas with similar attributes or potential. 

As interest begins to increase, these neighbouring suburbs then gradually become more popular, which eventually has a positive ripple effect on the area as a whole and pushes prices up to be in line with neighbouring popular areas.

Some other ways an area can become a hotspot include:

  • Gentrification 
  • Population growth
  • Infrastructure
  • Employment

How Do We Find the Perfect Property Hotspot?

Spotting the perfect area takes patience, skill, and experience. We’ve spent years cultivating the art of hotspotting, and we achieved this by following certain strategies and methodologies. When we look for property hotspots, there are some things that we keep in mind. These include:

The indicators of a great location include:

Close to lifestyle and entertainment features

Being able to visit a bar for that delicious cocktail, enjoying your favourite cuisine with friends at the latest funky restaurant, or just throwing a ball for your dog at the park before popping into the shopping centre to pick up some milk and bread without the need of driving an hour – these are all features that will add value to your potential property investments for years to come.

Close proximity to business or employment opportunities

This generally lures opportunistic real estate investors for the provision of rental housing or owner-occupiers who have to build a career opportunity in the area.

Reliable and/or expanding infrastructure

Access roads, public transport, schools, universities, retail centres and hospitals are some of the major contributors to growing hotspots. Not only does the construction of these projects attract employment opportunities, but their ongoing operation also requires a labour force. Once operational, these facilities improve the area and make it more appealing for people to live there.

Spotting the Diamond in The Rough

Instead of being distracted by what is, we focus on what could one day be. This not only sharpens our edge as hot-spotting experts, but it also helps us find the perfect property in a particular hotspot. Unrenovated properties with the potential for improvement can often be purchased at lower costs, yet transformed into truly sensational real estate investments. Our team of professional buyer’s agents are here to help you find your diamond.

You’re Buying the Property, Not the Neighbourhood

As real estate experts, we know that even if a neighbourhood is on the fast-track to becoming a hotspot, it doesn’t guarantee that each property in it will be a valuable real estate investment. Some properties simply aren’t worth the investment, no matter how perfect the location might seem. 

That’s why you need a property buyer’s agent that knows how to separate mediocre properties from exceptional, real estate investment opportunities.
