The suburb Lower Risk Score is simply the average of all the individual Lower Risk Scores for each property in that suburb.

A higher score indicates the suburb has increased in value over a longer period so is less likely to only be due to recent market forces. It is also likely to contain properties that command higher rent than average and therefore attract higher income tenants. Furthermore, properties in this suburb are likely to be easier to sell in the future due to strong market health indicators.
