  2. Penrith property market as seen some substantial growth in the last 15 years. Penrith population as of 2020 (ABS statistics) is 216,282. Its demographic is nearly analogous with that of the Greater Sydney region in that most of its population is within the 25-45 bracket (young workforce, parents and home builders).

    The interesting thing about Penrith, however, is that its younger population, from 1 to 17 is greater in comparison to the rest of the Sydney suggesting that demand for a particular property type (for example, a 4-bedroom house) could be greater in Penrith than surrounding suburbs. This can also be seen when referring to the Penrith’s demand profile page on HtAG platform which highlights that 3- and 4-bedroom homes and in highest demand.

    On top of this, Penrith’s ageing or senior population is diminishing and is smaller than the rest of the Sydney. This suggests that all things being equal, Penrith should have an above average demands for property in the years to come. This is confirmed by looking at the forecast graphs on HtAG platform—both capital growth and medium rent are highlighted as increasing from Q3 2021 to Q3 2021.

    The overall growth for the entire Penrith LGA in Q3 2023 is forecasted at about 6%. With a typical price of $785K, Penrith remains one of the top investment areas in Western Sydney with North St Marys, NSW 2760 leading the way as the top suburb in Penrith Council.
