Immediately south of Liverpool, Casula is beginning to catch the eye of investors and tenantsFull summary Immediately south of Liverpool, Casula is beginning to catch the eye of investors and tenants.

Sales agent Glen Craigie of McGrath Estate Agents cites the affordability of its properties as one attractive feature.

“Its location and being so close to main arterial roads make the suburb ultra-convenient,” he adds.

“The most common renters have grown up within the Liverpool region and find convenience the key in staying within the area.”

Casula has ample retail and transport amenities to support its residents.

The suburb is also accessible via reliable public transport, with its own designated train station and good proximity to M5 and M7 motorways.

Casula homes are highly sought after, and prices rise as the supply struggles to meet demand.

The best buys, according to Craigie, are the more affordable semi-detached housing.

“Investors are attracted to townhouses, villas and duplexes due to the low maintenance for an incoming tenant,” Craigie explains.

First home buyers prefer singlelevel dwellings on large plots of land. Meanwhile, growing families opt for more sizable properties.Close
