In the past 10 years, Sydney has experienced rapid growth and an increasing shift towards urban living. Australia’s most populated capital city hit 5 million in 2016 and is expected to reach 6.42 million in just 20 years time. The potential for investors to capitalise on the current property boom in Sydney is huge and here’s how you can do it.
Making the right investment choice now
You’ve decided you want to invest in Sydney but what next? The demand for high density living, particularly around the inner city suburbs, makes investing in an apartment a smart move. Choosing the right location is absolutely critical, and knowing which suburbs have the greatest growth potential and infrastructure in place will ensure the best return for your investment in the future.
Roughly 1 in 5 Australians call Sydney home, with the city welcoming more than 1,500 new residents each week.
Waterloo – one of Sydney’s most liveable suburbs
If you look at what a tenant or owner-occupier is looking for when it comes to living the ultimate urban lifestyle, Waterloo fits the bill. The inner city suburb located a mere 4km from Sydney’s CBD is ranked within the top 20 most liveable suburbs and it’s not hard to see why.
Waterloo is fast becoming one of Sydney’s most vibrant cultural and culinary epicentres, and its close proximity to transport links and amenities such as shopping, parks, schools and employment hubs makes it an attractive area to live or invest. The suburb is also within walking distance of the largest urban renewal project in Australia – the Green Square Project – a new major centre around the Green Square Railway Station, which will deliver new homes and infrastructure between now and 2030.
Why invest in Waterloo?
As an investor, you want to ensure you’re attracting the right tenant for your property. With a median age of 30, Waterloo’s prosperous demographic consists largely of a mix of executives and professionals on double incomes. The suburb’s average household incomes are 20% above the Sydney LGA, currently sitting at $2,500 per week.
Over the past 10 years it has experienced unprecedented growth at an average rate of 7-10%, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down, with a forecasted growth of 53% over the next 10 years. With a high rental value and over 75% of properties being rented, this suburb is never short of tenants.
