“After researching a number of granny flat builders on the Central Coast and Newcastle, Acrow Investments were flexible with our requests and were able to negotiate professionally about inclusions and price. Being from Sydney we wanted the construction process to be quick and easy as we were unable to travel to the Central Coast often.”

“Very professional team, delivered on time and on budget, which is a rarity in the building industry. It took approximately 3 months from start to finish to build the granny flat under difficult circumstances. They only use quality appliances and materials. Highly recommended, I will definitely use Acrow again as it is a company you can trust.”

Why invest in Newcastle?

There are several factors that make Newcastle an extremely appealing area to invest in. Despite Australia’s record-breaking property downturn in 2018, Newcastle sailed through unscathed – recording solid growth.

According to the QBE Australian Housing Outlook 2018-2021, property prices have grown 7.6% per annum on average over the past five years. Rental properties in particular are booming, with Newcastle giving some of the country’s biggest returns on investment last year.

As professionals continue to migrate from Sydney, enticed by the natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle, they have powered a 27% increase in approvals of new dwellings from 2017-18. The The City of Newcastle LGA (pop. 155,000 and not to be confused with the larger Newcastle area) also offers many employment opportunities – approximately 73,029 people work there, and unemployment has been continually falling over the past several years.

Chris came to us as she wanted to make the most of her large backyard which wasn’t being used since her children had now moved out of home. We met Chris on site and provided her with a free quotation and sketch plan to best suit her property and budget. Chris is now renting out the granny flat for more than her loan repayments, which will help her pay off her mortgage quicker and give her more financial freedom.
