Past growth isn't an indicator of guaranteed future growth but it does provide an indication that there has been demand in the area.

Access to median prices over a long period of time provides investors with an idea on demand for a suburb and the opportunity to compare the growth of the area to other suburbs and the growth of the greater area.
