In every city, there are suburbs where people live because they really have no choice.
This is where most homeowners and many investors look because that’s where they can afford to buy
In general, these locations are the established inner-ring suburbs of our capital cities or suburbs close to water.
These are the upper-middle-class areas and gentrifying locations of our big cities which would also be considered A-grade suburbs
Not all real estate locations are equal and just like there are different precincts on the Monopoly board
Areas with a low crime rate are far more desirable to live in than those with a higher crime rate
Another factor to take into account for an investment-grade location is those neighbourhoods that have undergone gentrification
You will see tired old warehouses or run-down shops in surrounding streets, starting to be given a new lease on life.
Beauty, amenities, services, and walkability are all key factors that help set a high-value investment-grade suburb apart from the rest.
The availability of infrastructure and amenities is another important factor contributing to what makes a location "investment-grade.”
