    This is my suburb.

    Wow. That's quite a low return on investment. My house in Brisbane is worth $1.1 but I get $1100 per week rent (an accidental rental as I moved cities and haven't sold up yet).

    I don't know the stats on how many properties are investments. I assume most would be owner occupy

    Just want to add that my suburb isn't exclusive by any means. I think it's great as we are close to city and beach but this price just demonstrates the craziness of house prices here.

    What's the market like for subdivision and renovation in Sydney? I'm getting the vibe on here it's not worth it / the done thing. Maybe I live in an Adelaide bubble, but surely investors are still developing properties in Sydney too and aren't just using NG and CG as their only source of financial gain??

    I can see both sides. I don't like negative gearing as concept and never have.

    But I feel for middle income earners who are trying to plan for their retirements in a country that offers them nothing in retirement but often don't have enough savings to live on.

    Not much better for low income earners. I read that there was a plan about having low income earners 'opt out' of super payments and instead have that as their income. Not sure what they are supposed to retire on? Can't afford property. No super. Anyway - I am derailing. Carry on.

    Wonder what it would be like in Wolli Creek? That place is a disaster. Did you see this?
