Why Liverpool is fast becoming Sydney’s property hot-spot

As one of the oldest urban settlements in Australia, founded in 1810 by Governor Lachlan Macquarie, Liverpool is experiencing a seismic revival. Few places in our city are changing as fast as Liverpool, and the quantity and calibre of infrastructure projects are positioning it as Sydney’s fastest growing economy. Liverpool’s massive renaissance is in part due to the fact that construction at Badgery’s Creek is to begin next year, bringing an estimated 11,000 construction jobs on the $5.3billion build, providing an exorbitant boost to the local economy. Liverpool is being described as ‘The Gateway to Sydney’s Aerotropolis’.

All this major investment is having the consequent effect of transforming this suburb into one of Sydney’s burgeoning hotspots and people from all over Sydney are making the move South West. The opportunity to purchase a highly affordable, luxury, oversized apartment is proving irresistible to purchasers, who are even coming from trendy Inner City suburbs like Surry Hills and Zetland. One of the best residential buildings in Liverpool, Pinnacle, is being developed EQ Projects, renowned for their high end Upper North Shore and Eastern Suburbs developments. They are bringing this same level of luxury and attention to detail to Liverpool. With oversized floorplans, panoramic views, luxurious finishes and an affordable price tag, these apartments offer a lot more than their counterparts elsewhere in Sydney.

Situated in the heart of Liverpool and right on Macquarie Street’s ‘Eat Street’ with its delectable cuisine from all over the world, Pinnacle’s epicentral location is unrepeatable. New cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques are popping up regularly. A$7billion is being injected into the immediate area, greatly benefiting the local economy and improving its already substantial array of amenities and creating a plethora of jobs into the future which is also a drawcard for purchasers. As the capital of Sydney’s Southwest, the new Liverpool City Centre will be a ‘model of the cities of Australia’s future’, thanks to the council’s Growing Liverpool 2023 strategy.

New infrastructure either underway or on the way:

  • Macquarie Mall (Liverpool’s own ‘Eat Street’) is about to get a major facelift
  • A brand new civic centre with a new cutting edge library, Council Chambers, commercial towers and University of Wollongong Liverpool campus
  • Bigge Park upgrade including water park, kids play area, cycle ways, outdoor gym and more
  • Georges River’s revitalisation with Moorebank Marina, Inglis Riverside Stables and Doltone House Deepwater Restaurant Precinct
  • Westfield touted for an upgrade
  • The proposed Liverpool extension to Sydney’s rapid metro train line will have commuters to the CBD in far quicker time and with far less wait
  • Badgery’s Creek Airport transformation, giving the local economy a huge boost and providing a wealth of new jobs and people looking to buy and rent

Health and Education:

Top schools and universities provide highly attractive learning environments - including the new Western Sydney University and University of Wollongong’s Liverpool Campuses.  Great local hospitals provide the full spectrum of medical facilities and every local amenity is on hand for residents’ convenience. Liverpool Hospital has just received $740million to fund its new and highly innovative health, research and education precinct.


The lifestyle on offer in Liverpool is surprisingly rich. There are a myriad of great local sport and leisure facilities on offer:

·         Whitlam Leisure Centre’s pool and gym
·         Hillier Oval
·         Bigge Park
·         Warwick Farm Racecourse
·         Anytime Fitness
·         Squashlands
·         Lake Moore and the coming Georges River marina, stables and restaurant precinct

Epicentral location:

  • The beautiful Ocean Road to Wollongong and the South Coast are easily accessible
  • The majestic Blue Mountains make for a great day trip or long weekend
  • South Sydney and Wollongong’s best beaches are an easy drive away
  • The Kingsford Smith Airport is a 20 minute drive on the M5

New Year's Recycling Resolutions

Happy New Year from the team at Cramer Property! 

We hope you had (and are still having) fantastic, safe holidays filled with love, laughter, decadent meals and long, relaxing days. We want to start the year on a really positive note, so we feel that all of us could (and really should) commit to the New Year’s resolution of recycling our way to a healthier planet. 

So many of us get busy, tired or just plain lazy and either dump a bunch of things in the recycling bin that we think are recyclable but we’ve never really checked, or just dump everything in the regular red bin. So I’m going to try and make it easy for you and outline common rubbish misconceptions and recycling rules that really aren’t that hard to follow. 

  • The number in a triangle indicates the type of plastic or substance a product is made from and doesn’t always mean it is recyclable! Don’t be fooled if you see the triangle on polystyrene packaging – it is NOT recyclable
  • Plastic bags and food packaging should NOT go in the recycle bin as they contaminate recycling and jam machinery. Coles have REDcycle bins where you can place your soft plastics like bread bags, biscuit and confectionery packets, frozen food/rice/pasta and supermarket bags to be recycled into useful new products such as outdoor furniture. Cling wrap and nappies are NOT recyclable
  • You do NOT need to rinse recyclable containers – they must just be empty and dry. However if you have time it is best to rinse as this keeps away bad odours and ensures your bins are relatively clean
  • Never put anything broken or sharp in the recycle bin. It’s dangerous for collectors and is unable to be recycled. Crockery and drinking glasses are NOT recyclable
  • Do NOT throw out lightbulbs, mobile phones or batteries as they create environmental toxicity. These can be disposed of at local libraries and Neighbourhood Service Centres.
  • Never throw out e-waste or chemicals. Contact your local council to find ways of disposing of these responsibly
  • Don’t just throw out clothing, household items and toys that are in good condition. There are lots of organisations that take these things and distribute them where needed, so check in your local area for the nearest charitable organisation, here are some suggestions for what to and where to dispose clothing; http://recyclingnearyou.com.au/charities/SydneyNSW
  • When in doubt, refer to the notice above your bins that shows what is recyclable and if you don’t have one, contact your local council.

  • The green bin is the garden organic bin. Small branches, leaves, grass clippings, tree and shrub prunings, plants, flowers and weeds can be placed here. Do NOT put food scraps, soil, rocks, large pieces of plant material, building materials
  • Want to go the extra step toward making a difference? Start composting your food scraps and garden waste. If you live in a strata scheme, talk to the Owners’ Committee about purchasing a compost bin. This will provide great food for your common areas gardens and help reduce waste. For ideas on how to get composting, visit www.cleanup.org.au/au/LivingGreener/composting.html 
Let's make 2018 a fantastic year for all of us and for the environment too! 
Love where you live.
