“Balmoral and New Farm are blue  chips suburbs , they had extended period of solid growth and people had solid confidence in these markets,” says Brown. “But because it’s hard to improve on the location and the level of amenity and the median price is already so high it’s likely that growth will be more contained or conservative over the next decade or so.”
