A north western suburb of Newcastle, Mayfield – which was initially named after Ada May, a daughter of local landowner John Scholey – is located around 6km from the centre of town. Property prices have increased on the back of a growing village atmosphere that has seen coffee shops, restaurants and shops proliferate.
With a train station, parks and shops and other amenities all located within a couple of minutes walking distance, and the beach around 15 minutes drive away, local residents have access to everything they need. Townhouses and units are affordably priced, with stock ranging from established, period-style townhomes through to more modern duplexes.
Landlords could expect a rental return of around $330-$350 per week for an older style apartment, through to $500-plus for more modern dwellings, so the opportunity for a strong return abounds.
