While I'm a little past working out which clubs the under 30's are frequenting, I am quite interested in where they are looking at purchasing their homes.  

This is a simple example of the insights available when data is captured and sliced and diced in the right way. Analysing the postcodes of mortgage applications shows where someone has got the price point and product right for first home buyers. The challenge comes with the crystal ball forecasting of those trends to read where the next hotspot will be and capitalise on opportunities before others do.  

It's no surprise that Queensland has performed so well on the list with the price differential between it and the southern states at the highest its been in years.
