The quarterly Well Home Loans Green Shoots Report identifies the 20 suburbs using the following metrics:

  • Inventory levels decreasing over the past three months
  • Days on market decreasing over the past three months
  • Asking prices increasing over the past three months

Well Home Loans CEO Scott Spencer said the Green Shoots Report contains a diverse mix of property markets, generally at 'affordable' prices.

"The top 20 list includes markets in seven different states and territories. Of the 20 locations, there are 11 metro and nine regional locations, as well as 11 house and nine unit markets," he said.

"Median prices start as low as $165,000 for the Whyalla Norrie house market in regional South Australia and go no higher than $820,000 for the Burwood unit market in Melbourne.

"When you analyse leading indicators like inventory levels and days on market, you get a sense for whether market conditions are tilting towards sellers or buyers, and therefore whether prices are likely to rise or fall in the year ahead."

All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the product provider’s website. Monthly repayments, once the base criteria are altered by the user, will be based on the selected products’ advertised rates and determined by the loan amount, repayment type, loan term and LVR as input by the user/you. *The Comparison rate is based on a $150,000 loan over 25 years.
