“Battery Point and Hobart CBD both offer investment opportunities,” says Andrew Peck, director of Herron Todd White Tasmania. “These are the premium suburbs and will be in the future. The return on initial investment may not be fantastic; however there are strong capital growth prospects.”

He adds that the inner city residential area of Hobart itself has seen some of the best returns over the past 10 years.

“In 1998 the median price was a mere $125,000. 2008 saw the median price increase to $480,000,” adds Peck. “That represents a 284% increase in the 10-year period. The convenience of surrounding amenities is a huge drawcard to the area, plus the bonus of CBD locale. Surely Hobart’s CBD must be seen as one on the best places for long term investment.”

My Property Hunter principal Rob Zubin suggests the area around Collins Street, Argyle Street and Campbell Street as featuring some unit and townhouse developments that are often in demand due to their proximity to the Royal Hobart Hospital.
