    Thoughts on Ermington

    I know... but there are still so many issues that I have with it....do you think it will continue to rise so quickly....what was $550 about 3 yrs is now about $700....still may be affordable...what about surrounding Rydalmere? Or dundas? do you think these are better or about the same?

    Thoughts on Ermington

    Looking at purchasing IP around $500K - $600K mark...with granny flat if possible...to reduce repayments. Also would like some capital growth when the market decides to pick up. Any thoughts on why Ermington has increased in value so much over the last 3 yrs and whether you believe this will...

    Winston Hills thoughts??

Good access to M2 and close to Parramatta shops, Castle Hill, Bella Vista etc. I like the area when I put my family hat on..but from an investment...

    unit prices in Homebush West

    Hi All Saw an article in the weekend paper predicting best Sydney suburbs for growth %. Predicted that Homebush West will have 35% growth on the median price of houses in the suburb. There was a separate section on moving prices for units. No mention of Homebush west. If there is growth...
