The Central Coast

In choosing to live and invest on the Central Coast, you are investing into a National Trend Leading region, according to Terry Ryder, the creator and owner of ‘Hotspotting’, which helps identify emerging property markets. The Central Coast has much in its favour: it has an attractive seaside location; it’s within commuting distance of both Sydney and Newcastle; there are affordable properties and numerous developments are creating job opportunities.

‘The Exodus to Affordable Lifestyle’ is the most powerful force impacting Australian real estate in the 21st Century and the Central Coast is at the forefront of it. A steady stream of people are leaving the big cities, in particular Sydney, and moving to this region. They are lured by beaches, an emerging cafe culture, affordable properties, job opportunities and a less hectic lifestyle focused on the water.

Given the rise in property prices in the last 12 months, which in most suburbs is in excess of 20%, and the opportunities for working from home, the Central Coast offers strong and sustainable possibilities for investors and home buyers.

Importantly, the long-term capital growth rates are among the best in Australia. The vast majority of Central Coast locations have delivered over 8% per year over the last 10 years; growth rates that are among the best in Australia. CoreLogic analyst Tim Lawless says it’s likely that the Central Coast market will continue to outperform the broader Sydney average, given that population growth remains strong, housing is affordable relative to Sydney and first-home buyers are active.
