We asked the molenaar + mcneice team which suburbs they predicted as the top suburbs in the Illawarra to invest in and here is what they said:
Here are Trever’s:
“I believe 2021 all suburbs throughout the Illawarra will do well due to its proximity to Sydney and lifestyle as well all know too well.
But if I’m going to pick ones that I feel will give better growth I’m going to split hairs and give one in the north and another in the south. In the north, Bulli. It finished last year very strong being one of our most enquired on suburbs. Beautiful beaches and great community feel with easy access to Sydney.
In the south, Windang. Same reason as Bulli but with a more affordable price tag. Surrounded by water for those escaping the cities for a lifestyle change”
Here is what Danny had to say:
“My two suburbs which I think are great to invest in are West Wollongong or in Coniston, both are conveniently located close to the CBD.
West Wollongong is a fantastic suburb close to the University yet only moments drive to the centre of Wollongong & is highly overlooked when out of area investors first commence their search. You also have easy access to the Wollongong Botanic Gardens which is easily one of the most diverse & beautiful in the entire country.
Keiraville with it’s sought after village atmosphere is only minutes away so you have all of this but without the higher price tag.
Coniston is a relatively overlooked suburb also. What I love about this suburb is the proximity to Wollongong CBD from the South of the city, yet for families it also provides very quick & easy access to Figtree Grove shopping precinct, it is also close to several public & private schools & only a few minutes drive to the far southern entry of City Beach which is pet dog friendly.
Both suburbs have consistently performed in terms of capital growth & I have personally invested & lived in both suburbs & have had overly positive experience & return on my investment”
