Then its is simple there is a solution  < CLICK ME  >

Lets look at what this app does.
One feature is at the examination of the DSR score.
DSR stands for Demand to Supply Ratio.
What is the DSR Score?

Here's something to think about..

  • Residex reported an Australia-wide capital growth for the year ending December 2010 of -1.19%. Over the same period the top bracket of DSR markets recorded an average of 11%.
  • For the year ending 30 Jun 2011 Residex reports a country-wide growth of -1.84%. DSR top 100 averaged 9.1% over the same period.
  • From March 2010 to March 2011 the API top 100 (suburbs hand-picked by recognised property commentators) averaged 7.3% while the DSR top 100 chosen using Boomtown (the dsr score mobile app) alone averaged 11.7%. Who know how long it took the experts to do their research and for the API top 100 to be compiled but the 'Boomtown 100' tooks all of 60 seconds. Easy, Accurate and very fast.
It works: The DSR Score is causing a sensation in property circles.

The app aims to :

The market average is just that: THE AVERAGE. 
If you can accurately measure the supply and demand for properties in all suburbs in Australia and compare them side by side you will quickly get an idea of which suburbs sit above the average trend line (the market average) and which suburbs sit way below.
Even in a flat market you can identify hotspots likely to skyrocket in price.  But how do you do this without spending countless hours every night, bleary-eyed as you search website after website?
Sure, the information is all there – but it takes hours and hours to find… trawling different website, articles and expensive reports ... and then all the information needs to be analysed.  Is that your idea of fun – coming home after a long day at work only to face a whole night in front of your computer screen?

E.g. "show me 10 suburbs with a DSR score of 24-32 (greate growth potential), a rental yield of 7%+ costing no more than  $320,000 with renters making up 30% of the occupants in an area"
