Measure the gap in demand and supply for your suburb

DSR – Demand to Supply Ratio

Have you ever wondered how professional investors determine where the next suburb hotspot will likely be?

They spend hundreds of hours referencing various data sources.They are often data analytics experts and have large budgets for research.

Boomtown searches, collates and analyses this data for you from multiple publicly available demand and supply data sources across the web.

The DSR is an objective measure of the gap or ratio between available properties for rent or purchase and the demand for those same properties by tenants and owner-occupiers.

DSR Score

A powerful algorithm produces a single score out of a maximum of 48 representing the gap in supply and demand and therefore the likely impact on prices within the next 3 years.

15,000 suburbs are ranked according to their DSR score so that the buyer can produce a shortlist of suburbs for focused research depending on their unique investment criteria and financial capacity.

E.g. "Show me all suburbs in NSW where the typical price is $500,000 with comparatively high capital growth potential [score of 42 to 44], a high rental yield [rental yield of 8% or more] where owner-occupiers are moving into the area and therefore pushing prices up further [Renters vs. Owners trending upwards]"

The Shortlist (Pro version only)

The DSR Score is a statistical representation of an area's comparative growth prospects. The buyer must conduct local level research before making a buying decision. The DSR Score simply helps all buyers create a final shortlist of suburb hotspots for ground level research e.g. are there any infrastructure developments coming soon, is there a bus stop nearby for renters if the demographic targeted demand it.

Boomtown Pro users can save suburbs of interest to "favourites" and chart the data over 12 months.
