Southern Sydney Suburbs – big buying power, great suburb’s


Anthony Gentile, Brighton-Le-Sands mortgage broker, discovers big gains in Sydney’s southern suburbs.


As a Brighton-Le-Sands home loan specialist, I assist people each day who are ‘living the dream’.

Sydneysiders love to be near the beach, enjoy good cafes and great restaurants, and the area I work in, providing home loans in Kogarah, Rockdale, Arncliffe and Bexley, offers it all – plus a whole lot more.

Brighton-Le-Sands has a wealth of amenities combining brilliant beachside living just 13 kilometres from the CBD.  Property price growth in the area reflects the suburb’s fabulous lifestyle opportunities. House prices in Brighton-Le-Sands have risen by 57.56% over the five years to June 2014. Even by Sydney standards that’s a tremendous gain.

But it pays not to overlook the surrounding south Sydney suburbs for home buying and investment potential.

Price growth exceeding 70% in 5 years

It’s still possible for instance, to pick up apartments in Kogarah for under $500,000. In this price bracket, many units are one-bedders – but it makes a Kogarah home loan a great tool to get started on the Sydney property ladder.

Arncliffe can offer even better value with 2-bedroom units in the suburb listed for sale below $500,000. And with unit prices in Arncliffe notching up 5-year gains of 77.2% it’s easy to see why this is such a popular location among owner occupiers and investors alike. 

I also provide Rockdale home loans, and this is one suburb with serious potential. More affordable than Brighton-Le-Sands, Rockdale offers good public transport and a thriving commercial centre. With house prices in Rockdale climbing 21.3% in the last 12 months alone, this is definitely a high growth location.
