The suburb of Liverpool is the major city centre of Southwest Sydney, with a flourishing business precinct, major hospitals, quality schools and an efficient public transport system.Full summary The suburb of Liverpool is the major city centre of Southwest Sydney, with a flourishing business precinct, major hospitals, quality schools and an efficient public transport system.

An attractive option for families, who currently make up 70% of residents, Liverpool is expecting a population boom of half a million people in the next 20 years. As a result, an abundance of new residential developments is on the cards.

Historically, Liverpool has performed well, recording high capital growth of 27% in the past 12 months.

“It’s been good for a while because of the release of the Badgerys Creek airport, lots of development in the area and infrastructure,” says Frank Polistina from Elders Real Estate Liverpool. But he warns the market has likely reached its peak.

“We have been getting very high prices in the past, but now the market is correcting itself.” However, he says, while values are expected to remain stable, “I can’t see prices dropping dramatically”.

Polistina says buyers are trending towards “the more affordable end of the market, around $350,000–$400,000 two-bedroom apartments”. This is supported by ABS data which reveals that 50% of Liverpool’s residents live in two-bedroom units.

Even though the market is expected to stabilise, the average unit rental yield of 6.5%, combined with statistics showing that half of Liverpool’s residents identify as tenants, is a promising sign for investors.
