Local Real Estate Agent, Rachael Goldsworthy, says, “McGraths Hill is a middle class, family area. It’s popular for a lot of reasons. There are public and private schools and very large sporting grounds of Colbee Park. It’s close to the water, so there are plenty of recreational activities, a cycle way and boat ramps.It also has Bunnings, Aldi, a Home Centre and a number of quality specialty stores and restaurants.“
McGraths Hill is on the Hillsbus routes to Westfield at Rouse Hill and Windsor and close to the M2 motorway.
“We recently sold a four bedroom home in Books Crescent for $460,000. It is a good area for owner-occupiers as well as investors given that there is so much nearby and it’s within a reasonable commute proximity to the city, Parramatta and Norwest.”
“McGraths Hill is popular. We currently have homes listed in Kallawatta Crescent and Books Crescent. The last property we sold in Books Crescent went for $460,000, so there is great potential in this area for investors as well as families.”
“Median house price in 2011 was $450,000. This has increased from $290,000 over the last ten years (2002 median price).
“Last month a 22.5% increase in capital growth was reported by real estate analysts, RP Data, which was more than double that of the Hawkesbury,” said Ms Goldsworthy.
