The great rental alternative- forget Sydney come to the Peninsula

Forget Sydney, the great rental alternative- The Peninsula.

The NSW Central Coast is an economical alternative to the highly-priced Sydney rental market. The perfect place for families to put down roots, likewise generation Y and Z who wish to maximise the value for their rental dollar look to areas such as ours to call home.

 The peninsula is popular with renters as it offers easy access to Sydney & Newcastle via the M1 or Railway. Rental in Sydney is simply not cost effective when compared to the lifestyle choices afforded by the Coast. Great Cafe’s, awesome beaches, verdant parklands and the National Park to explore. We have fantastic schools, plenty of child care places and a local University and TAFE as well.

 A recent study (April 2017) undertaken by US-based internet listing service, RENTCafe has recently published their own research in their Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) as to what it costs to rent in the world’s top financial cities. As far as financial cities go, Sydney comes in at number 11 on the list of 30 with London taking the top spot then New York followed by Singapore.

 The study looked at the cost of renting a one bedroom unit (approx. 55-85sqm) in a competitive environment with plenty of jobs available in the financial sector. Not surprisingly, Sydneysiders pay on average $672.00 per week in rent making it the 9th most expensive city on the GFCI ranking. When it comes to expensive rental costs, New York wins hands down with the average asking rent for a one bedroom unit in NYC coming in at $4,680 per month. The cheapest of the cities was Casablanca coming in at $820.00 per month.

 Meanwhile, here on the NSW Central Coast, we have a number of excellent properties for rent ranging from one bedroom granny flats through to large three bedroom houses with attached sleepouts for the teenagers. If you are looking for an area that facilitates easy access to work and plenty of opportunities to be part of an amazing community, then look no further that the Peninsula.
