Regional growth statistics highlight strengthening Bunbury market

By Kevin Kelly

Keeping an eye on the long term growth figures of a region can be invaluable information for potential investors interested in expanding their portfolio. 

The latest CoreLogic RP Data Quarterly Regional Report has outlined the strength of some of Australia's regional markets. For example, Bunbury real estate saw house values rise by 1.2 per cent over the year during March 2015. 

Furthermore, real estate in Bunbury has seen investor yields returns rise in recent times. Currently, houses have recorded a 5.1 per cent yield, while units have posted a 5.4 per cent return for investors. 

Senior researcher Cameron Kusher said low interest rates have helped to boost these regional markets, which could be great news for both buyers and sellers in the area. 

"We're starting to see greater home value growth across many coastal lifestyle markets. With mortgage rates tipped to remain low, the attractiveness of housing, particularly in some of the larger coastal regional markets, is likely to continue to show further growth over 2015," said Mr Kusher in a 20 May statement. 

With these figures in mind, now could be a brilliant time to begin considering your own investment property plans and start working towards achieving some great results for your future.
