About 15 minutes southwest of Canberra, the suburb of Duffy is riding the wave of the state’s momentum as house values have gotten a near 19% boost in the past 12 months leading up to May 2017. 

Even with a median price of above $700,000, houses are selling at a very low average discount rate of 2.44%. Investors may consider the cost worth it given the reasonable yield of 4.04%; the tight vacancy rate of 0.42% suggests that there won’t be a shortage of interested tenants.

There are a couple of schools for young children in the suburb, and a community oval has also been established nearby. Duffy Primary School is next door to shops on Burrinjuck Crescent, which serves as a stop for buses heading to Canberra.
