There has also been an increase in rents, having hiked up by 7% from September 2018, Sheppard adds.

“This suburb already has a real community spirit with a very strong school catchment and café strip that locals flock to. It has really gentrified over the last few years too, with old workers cottages and well-built established apartments replaced with bigger, modern contemporary homes.”
