Where and When - Intel for Smart Property Investors

The 5 indicators of the TUDI Hot-SpotTM

1. Buyer Demand

Supply and demand is the most fundamental concept of economics, and the property market is no exception. The higher the demand compared to supply, the more likely property prices are to rise.

TUDI’s Buyer Demand indicator will only shortlist suburbs where demand is about to or is exceeding supply, and will also assess how quickly demand has been increasing compared to supply.

2. Rental Occupancy

Similar to Buyer Demand, Rental Occupancy measures the rental demand against the supply available. The bigger the ratio, the more likely rents will rise. This in turn provides high rental yield, which attracts investors and pushes up property prices.

TUDI’s Rental Occupancy indicator will only shortlist suburbs with healthy or strong rental markets (i.e. rental occupancy ≥ 93%), and will also assess how quickly the rental demand has been increasing compared to supply.

3. Positive Gearing

TUDI’s Positive Gearing indicator is based on suburbs’ gross rental yield. The higher the gross rental yield, the more likely a property investment will be cash-flow positive, or ‘positively geared’.

The higher the Positive Gearing score, the higher the rental yield.

4. Past Price Performance

Timing is essential to reap the biggest rewards. A mistake commonly made in property investment is to invest in suburbs that have already risen in price, which usually means investors end up stuck with an asset that returns little growth – if any at all.

TUDI’s Past Price Performance indicator is in place to avoid that by ensuring you are not investing in a suburb that has already achieved significant price growth.

5. Seller Confidence

Seller Confidence assesses how much sellers are asking for their property compared to market value. The more they are asking compared to market value, the more confident they are about the local property market. And vice versa, the less they are asking for their property compared to market value, the less confident they are about the local property market.

The stronger the Seller Confidence, the more likely property prices will go up. TUDI’s Seller Confidence indicator only returns suburbs where sellers are asking for at least the same price as the market-estimated value of their properties.

Custom Suburb Reports

The TUDI platform delivers suburb property reports that are customised to your preferences. By using our proprietary TUDI Hot-SpotTM, you are able to adapt the success indicators to your investment preferences - is high rental occupancy most important to you? No problem, you can make that weigh more in your suburb report. More interested in a suburb with a high probability of positive gearing? Easy!

We’ve used data visualisation to show the suburb recommendations in our proprietary TUDI Hot-SpotTM, which features 5 key indicators that we’ve tested and proven to demonstrate whether to buy, hold or sell a suburb. The indicators are based on 2 years of research and development, in partnership with the University of Wollongong and show you where to invest, at a glance.

Working with the SMART Infrastructure Facility of the University of Wollongong and its Digital Living Lab, we apply AI (ARIMA and LSTM) for property market analysis and further progress the predictive capability of the technology. By understanding the dynamics of suburbs that outperform the market, including socio-economic analysis, the technology determines which factors can be associated with a boom in the market.

The TUDI platform is intel for a smart property investment.
