Being able to review the growth trends of a suburb over a long period of time can help you identify suburbs that will provide potential long-term growth.
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.
