Suburbs like Cronulla have access to all the amenities and lifestyle features of its more expensive peers in the Eastern Suburbs and Northern Beaches, but the real estate is a fraction of the price.
Cronulla was recently nominated as one of the most liveable suburbs in Sydney.

This will support new development, renovations and subsequent real estate price growth in these areas.

While growth will moderate, it will remain above the Sydney average in the medium term, especially for houses on reasonable blocks of land close to amenities or with views.
Supporting the recent price growth is the growing number of waterfront mansions. Woolooware Road in Burraneer is the most expensive street in the Shire.
