Gladstone still one of the hottest spots for property

A NEW list tells us what we already knew - Gladstone is one of the hottest spots in Australia for property investment at the moment.

The 2013 Fast 50 report from property resource Smart Property Investment named the top Australian suburbs set for capital growth this year.

Gladstone once again emerged as one of the top locations.

"The area is strategically important to the national economy, with high per capita income levels and a current shortage of rental housing," Fast 50 contributor Helen Collier-Kogtevs said.

"Gladstone's population is set to grow over the next five years as new projects are completed and this will certainly affect housing supply," she said.
