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. Our property manager Chris, owns a rental property on George St. This is what he had to say when asked about the Rental Market in Rockdale.

“I’ve owned or managed properties in Rockdale for over 10 years. In that time we’ve seen prices and rents double in value! Rockdale with its great little shopping district, including the Rockdale Plaza, is a renters paradise. The best thing about Rockdale though, is its transport system. Rockdale is on the Illawarra line and it takes less than 25 minutes to get to the Sydney CBD which is great for white collar workers. 

These days, as a property manager, I have come to realise that the unique geographical location of Rockdale makes it a great long term investment hub and a very desirable location for tenants. 

If you have any questions about the rental market, or would like a second opinion on your rental property, please let us know and our local property manager will be able to meet with you and discuss. Our advice to landlords looking for a property manager to manage their property, is to look for someone that has the capacity and headspace to care for their property, their tenant, and them as a customer.
