Average annual growth in Bakewell over the past 10 years has been phenomenal. Situated about 25km south-east of the Darwin CBD, it could be ripe for the picking as an investment choice.

Bakewell is a family-friendly area in Palmerston with a number of public parks, primary and secondary schools and day-care facilities. It’s close to the Stuart Highway, making Darwin proper only a half-hour drive away; regular bus services also operate throughout the area.

Elders Real Estate Palmerston residential sales consultant Sue Cox, says there’s a big rental market in Bakewell, which she only expects to grow.

“Because it’s got bigger blocks than say the Gunns and Duracks of Palmerston, it’s attracted a lot of people,” she says. “Instead of being stuck on a 400 square-metre block, you’re on a 700 square-metre block which is much more family and pet-oriented. It’s a great suburb.”

Bakewell’s relative affordability compared to neighbouring suburbs will also appeal to investors. The median house price in nearby Rosebery, for example, is close to $80,000 higher than that of Bakewell.

It’s also an area with a young and wealthy demographic. The latest ABS estimates put 64.6% of the population in the 0-34 year age bracket, while Census data shows an average weekly family income of $1,519 – well above the territory average of $1,217.

“It was known for a little while as your first home buyers’ market but, in saying that, the suburb has strengthened and deepened with age, and you’ve got a good variety in there,” says Cox.
