    I may be a bit slow – but think I have finally figured out by what you mean by this Michael.
    “The high(set) capital growth suburbs are within 10km of the four major CBDs in Australia.
    And the property cycle does vary somewhat between city, and between suburbs in each city.
    So, since many property investors don’t live within the 10km ring, and if they do, its only in one capital city, it pays off to look inside the ring of all four cities.”

    Meaning treat it like a business!
