Full summary

Southern Sydney suburb Eastlakes scores well as a good all-round investment prospect. Units are affordable for Sydney and it compares very favourably to neighbours Mascot and Rosebery.

The CBD is easily accessible via a 6km drive up Southern Cross Drive or a quick train journey along the airport line, and the airport itself is only one or two stops away. Amenity-wise, the suburb is home to the Eastlakes Shopping Centre and two golf courses.

Rental potential is excellent, with decent yields and low monthly vacancy rates. The price differential between Eastlakes and its closest neighbours also suggests there’s scope for more capital growth. There’s also scope to add value: two-thirds of properties in the suburb are units and are mainly low-rise brick complexes constructed over 20 years ago – providing plenty of renovation opportunities.

Nick Kastellorios, sales manager at local agent MGM Properties recommends Longworth Avenue and Evans Avenue, which border Eastlakes Reserve, as the choice streets.
