prime location for property investors


A recent article by Smart Property Investment referred to Wagga Wagga as a prime location for property investors.

Wagga Wagga, New South Wales’ largest inland city, is “worth considering” as a “viable option to add to a property portfolio”, according to Propertyology Managing Director Simon Pressley.

The city has a median property value of $349,000 and provides “superior rental yields to those offered by the capital cities”, he said.

According to Mr Pressley, there are several growth drivers and positive investment fundamentals that make Wagga Wagga worth considering.

“It has essential health infrastructure, tertiary education offerings through Charles Sturt University and a quality commerce and retail hub. Wagga Wagga services a broader Riverina regional population of 200,000 people.”

In addition, he said, the city is supported by transport and warehousing industries and a number of large employers and government services.

Current growth figures put Wagga Wagga ahead of other investment alternatives.

“[Wagga Wagga’s] 7.1 per cent average annual price growth over 15 years to December 2014 compares favourably against Greater Sydney’s price growth of 6.3 per cent over the same period,” Mr Pressley said.

“As at April 2015, Wagga Wagga is a distinct buyer’s market with properties taking 130 days to sell, although there is 11 per cent less stock to choose from. Vacancy rates were hovering around 3 per cent.”
