Where to invest in 2020: the top opportunities beyond Sydney’s inner suburbs

Where to invest in 2020: the top opportunities beyond Sydney’s inner suburbs

A number of new apartment, townhouse and integrated urban neighbourhood developments are being developed in high-growth areas outside of Sydney’s inner-suburbs, presenting a fantastic opportunity for investors in 2020.

With housing prices reported to be on track to return to boom-era levels over the next year, now could be the ideal time to invest.

A survey by the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) has found that investor confidence across the Australian property market is still strong, with 58 percent of investors saying that they are looking to buy within the next 6 to 12 months, and 71 percent saying that now is a good time to invest in property.

This is encouraging for investors looking to snap up a piece of Sydney real estate in 2020, and competitive property prices combined with strong rental yields in growth areas such as Sydney’s west create a compelling reason to invest outside of the premium priced inner-suburbs.
