Review of Schofields suburb in terms of travel to the city

11Mo ago 1 Replies 154 Views
Hi everyone, Needed a review of Schofields suburb in terms of travel to the city? Do the nearby stations have car or bike parking spots that can save time for local commute? I am travelling to the city everyday for work so wanted to know if anybody has experience of the commute.

Thanks!

I don't live there but have a few friends living in and around Schofields/Marsden Park. Yes car parking available near the station but you have to go early. Like 7 AM. Also if you work in the city, the journey will be very long. 1+ hour in the train one way. If you are used to long journeys everyday, then its ok, otherwise you'll be bored very soon.

NSW: NSW capital continued to hold the title as the second most expensive capital city rental market

arwin emerged as the strongest capital city rental market over the year, with house rents increasing by 24.2 per cent and unit rents increasing by 20.2 per cent in the 12 months to 12 May 2021, according to new research from Domain. In contrast, Melbourne house rents have declined by 5.2 per cent during the same period, while its unit rents fell by an even larger 11 per cent.

It follows Canberra, where median house rent is at $690.6 and median unit rent is at $492.7. Get details at: x Small capital cities lead rental growth with doubl...

Regional rent values have outpaced the capital city markets by almost three times

The combined value of rent estimates for all properties increased by 9.6 per cent in the year to April in regional Australia, far outpacing the 3.3 per cent growth recorded across the capital cities, CoreLogic’s latest Quarterly Regional Report revealed. The report also pointed to “extraordinary” tightening across regional rental markets, with rental listings halving over the year to April in 25 SA4 regions.  Consequently, rent values increased by 9.4 per cent on average, ranging from a boost of 17.6 per cent in New South Wales’ Richmond-Tweed to 2.3 per cent in the state’s capital region.

After suffering initial losses, Australia’s main capital city markets have experienced strong rebounds

Australia’s property market was negatively impacted at the beginning of the pandemic. Millions of Australians lost their jobs or were thrown onto welfare, consumer confidence cratered, property inspections and auctions were stopped, and the 5-City CoreLogic dwelling values index fell between April and October 2020. However, the subsequent rebound has been utterly spectacular, with all major capitals experiencing strong price growth. Sydney: Sydney dwelling values initially fell 2.1%, bottoming on 13 October 2020. Since then, Sydney values have rebounded 9.1% to be 6.7% higher than the pre-COVID level on 15 March 2020. Melbourne: Melbourne dwelling values initially fell very sharply, declining 5.9% to 18 October 2020. Values have since rebounded strongly, rising 7.3% to be 1.0% higher than the pre-COVID level.

Melbourne continued to lag behind – becoming the second most affordable capital city to rent in Australia

Hobart recorded the highest quarterly rise in weekly house rents at 4.3 per cent, followed by Adelaide at 3.7 per cent, Perth at 3.6 per cent and Brisbane at 3.5 per cent. Meanwhile, Sydney, Canberra and Darwin remained stable. Of all the capital cities, only Melbourne saw house rents decline by 2.3 per cent – making it the second most affordable capital city to rent a house for the first time on record, alongside Perth and behind Adelaide. “For the first time on record, Melbourne is the second most affordable capital city to rent a house, joint with Perth and behind Adelaide,” Domain’s senior research analyst, Dr Nicola Powell, said. But while Melbourne’s vacancies have declined in recent months, they remain 182 per cent higher than last year, according to Dr Powell. This was directly influenced by the reduction of demand as a result of international border closures, more tenants becoming home owners and city residents moving to lifestyle locations. “Inner Melbourne units have felt the brunt, with rents now at 2010 levels after tumbling by $110 a week annually,” Dr Powell noted.
