    Units are the most common dwelling style dominating Newcastle City along with a variety of older & newer semi-detached dwellings. 46% of dwellings in the area are units. 22% semi-detached 16% are Houses, and 15% other/commercial.

    However, suburbs 5 minutes outside the city like Kotara or New Lambton Houses are the most common form of dwelling and offer great value.

    Age mix for the area is 0 to 29 yo 33%, 30 to 49 yo is 26%, 50 & above is 30% so it’s a very attractive suburb for families and retirees.

    • I wouldn’t be investing in units there are many high rise projects being completed which will mean an oversupply. Established houses with decent yard size in landlocked inner city suburbs such as Lambton you mentioned, Broadmeadow, Adamstown, Hamilton, Georgetown, etc are good buys regardless of timing but Merewether is the best, most expensive suburb by the beach.
