Top 5 suburbs in Sydney for first home buyers

Up until 2020 it was all about big cities, rush and sparkling city lights, 2020 has turned the tables on our views and preferences. A first home buyer’s choice used to be to live in the heart of the city, but now some are choosing to move into the suburbs.

The pandemic has not only adversely affected our lives but also the way we live. People are choosing to get away from the chaos, a report shows a remarkable growth of properties being bought and sold in regional areas within an hour or two from the CBD.

The mass relocation of the people has increased the demand in the market which has led to a 3.1% increase in prices although there was a 2.1% price drop between April and September. Now with the

consecutive positive growth, the market seems to be rebounding sharply this year.

Every buyer has unique circumstances, goals and aspirations. Keeping all that on the table we have made a list of top 5 hotspots for our first home buyers to invest in.
