6 hotspots for 2015

by Staff Reporter 0 comments

The six suburbs in one capital city that are set to outperform other markets have been highlighted in a new report.

PRDnationwide Capital City Hotspots report said even though 51 per cent of Sydney suburbs now require a budget of more than $1 million – and those with a budget of $500,000 or less can access only 5.4 per cent of suburbs – “smart investors should still be able to buy affordable properties that appreciate above-average capital in various parts of Greater Sydney”.

The report said houses in Cambridge Park ($435,000 median house price in 2014), Concord ($1,340,000) and Merrylands ($675,000) would be hotspots in 2015, based on annual price growth, affordability level and coming 2015 project developments.

Units in Liverpool ($332,000 median unit price in 2014), Homebush ($545,000) and Penshurst ($495,000) were also highlighted by the report.

PRDnationwide said the identified suburbs “provide a mix of median prices to suit all budgets, without compromising on highly desired attributes such as: distance to employment centres in various central business centres; access to highway and public transport; local job growth prospects; access to commercial centres; and local amenities”.

The report said the continuing undersupply in Sydney meant rents in the city would remain highly competitive in 2015 and median rents should rise.

Savvy investors need not turn away from Sydney, according to the report.

“Although much of Sydney is considered unaffordable, there are still plenty of pockets with low median prices in locations that position them for growth in 2015.

"The key to assuring and increasing investment returns in Sydney is to be strategic, whereby a buyer not only looks at current median prices but also [the] attributes that will support further growth.”
