Hi, First time poster but long time viewer of this forum. I've recently had a loan approved and am looking at my options. I was initially planning to grab something around the Liverpool/Bankstown area in Sydney but have since decided to try to pick an apartment up closer to the Sydney CBD. My purchase will be for investment purposes and I'm looking for capital growth. Considering I won't be living there, I'm looking at around the Hillsdale/Eastlakes area. Less than 8km from the CBD, you can pick up a 2 bedroom apartment there for $650k which is low in the current market. Is there any real reason why this area isn't as expensive as it's neighbouring suburbs? I understand from past threads there is some housing commission through there but I'm not sure why it's so far behind in terms of pricing. Does anyone have some feedback and thoughts on buying there as an investment? My alternate option is to pick something up in Petersham/ Summer Hill/ Dulwich Hill area. All feedback is appreciated.
