  2. 3 Things That Are Driving the Blue Mountains Property Market:

    1. Population Growth – The population of Blue Mountains has grown by over 50% in the last 10 years, and this is expected to continue for at least another decade. This means more people are moving into the region which is driving demand for more housing and commercial property.

    2. Infrastructure Improvements – There have been a number of infrastructure improvements in recent years including new train stations, road upgrades, water supply upgrades, sewage system improvements etc., which will be continuing to drive growth in time as they help improve living conditions and access to jobs around Sydney.

    3. Lack of Housing Supply – With many other regions experiencing an increase in housing construction (which increases supply), the Blue Mountains market is still yet to experience such an increase.

    I think all 3 points are interesting, but it’s also important that we don’t just focus on one aspect of the market without looking at other facets as well. With a lack of new housing supply in Sydney generally – the last point is pretty much moot.

    What are your thoughts on these three factors?
