Investor Hotspots

Where should you invest?

We have more than a decade experience in investing in high growth property and some of the key markets where we’ve found lucrative investments are satellite cities within two hours’ commute of primary metropolitan areas.

While affordability remains a key reason to move, buyers are increasingly talking about escaping from city stress, traffic and cost of living. With surprisingly comparable wages and a vast difference in house prices, and the ability to take on a small commute, the metro-regional trade-off is compelling.

Here’s some of out investor hotspots worth considering in 2019:
