Suburbs with low demand for housing but have many properties available are unfavourable for investors as there is no market pressure for prices to increase.

If an area has experienced a recent price fall over a short period, it is expected the price will continue to fall for a long period of time. 

Property analyst, Jeremy Sheppard, said if an investor owns a property in these suburbs, they should try to sell it as quick as possible.  

‘The research showed that vainly holding on to properties in some of these locations could see your property wealth erode every year,’ he said to realestate.com. 

Investors should shift their focus to low priced suburbs around Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra and the Gold Coast-Tweed area as these cheap properties are expected to grow in value. 

‘The Canberra-Queanbeyan region has taken out the first and second places for forecast price growth, partly due to affordable house prices close to our nation’s capital,’ Mr Sheppard said. 

‘Both Charnwood and Karabar are near Canberra, which means housing is in strong demand from public servants.’
