Today we have a large number of rental properties under management in the area and are always looking to add more as we just love the demographic. This is what he had to say when asked about the Rental Market in Lakemba.

“I’ve lived and worked in the area for 2 decades. Sproule St is where I grew up! In that time we’ve seen prices and rents triple in value! Lakemba is a major transport hub, with a thriving migrant community and renters are always drawn to it. The best things about Lakemba are its nightlife, the location and transport system. Lakemba is on the Bankstown line and it takes less than 30 minutes to get to the Sydney CBD. Great for white collar workers. 

These days, as a property manager, I have come to realise that, when considering the central location of Lakemba with easy access to the best that Canterbury-Bankstown has to offer, few suburbs fair better than Lakemba.
