Properties located in the high growth suburbs of Mayfield, Jesmond, Cardiff and Waratah in the Newcastle region of NSW have become highly sought after, due to close proximity to the city, main roads and key amenities, such as hospitals and schools.
Last year, many homes in these suburbs sold for between $20,000 and $30,000 over the reserve price, however changes to lending criteria at the major banks and many finance lenders has put downward pressure on prices.
