Well Home Loans CEO Scott Spencer said the Well Home Loans Green Shoots Report has identified a diverse range of markets, most of which are reasonably affordable.

"The Well Home Loans Green Shoots Report doesn't actively search for affordable locations, but, in a nice coincidence, most of the suburbs on this list would be accessible to the average family, with asking prices ranging from less than $300,000 to just under $900,000," Mr Spencer said.

The 20 suburbs chosen showed the strongest combination of three main factors over the last three months:

  • Inventory levels decreasing
  • Days on the market decreasing
  • Asking prices increasing 

"The standout feature about this quarterly report is that it focuses on leading indicators, which give a guide to the future, rather than lagging indicators, which tell you about the past," Mr Spencer said.

“The key leading indicators are inventory levels and days on market, which tell you about the balance between supply and demand.

"When those two indicators are falling, it means buying conditions are becoming harder, which suggests prices are likely to rise in the months and even years ahead."

Standout suburbs

The Deebing Heights house market (#1 ranking), in Ipswich, Queensland, is showing the clearest signs that strong price growth is just around the corner according to Well Home Loans. 

The sharp fall in inventory levels (by 72.3%) and days on market (by 15.0%) over the past three months are key leading indicators.

The nearby Springfield house market (#2 ranking) has also gained momentum over the past three months, with inventory levels falling by a dramatic 67.2% and days on market dropping 23.5%.

The Huntly house market (#5 ranking), in Bendigo, is the standout Victorian location, where inventory levels (2.1 months) and days on market (22) are incredibly low.
