Our Thoughts

Bilgola Plateau is situated 27km North of Sydney and is at the very North end the peninsula with only Palm Beach and Whale Beach further North. The local government area is Northern Beaches Council.
Like Sydney as a whole, Bilgola Plateau and surrounding suburbs have experienced amazing capital growth over the last three years. Properties in this region sit at the very north end of your budget - however, we wanted to provide you with an option on the Northern Beaches for consideration nonetheless.
Housing in Bilgola Plateau and surrounding suburbs is generally a mix of older style double brick homes with pitched tile roofs. Houses have great bones and generally sit on medium size blocks of land - allowing enough room for young families to grow. 
Supply in Bilgola Plateau is tightly held, which can be a good thing - it does, however, mean that there is high demand for property in the area. 
Typically properties in your price range require cosmetic improvements. We will not present properties that require structural renovations as your budget will not allow for this. We will identify these needs when presenting properties with a summary of the required works and estimate the cost associated with that. If we do progress and the renovations are something that you'd like to progress with, we would supply you with a full financial feasibility study.

Supply vs. Demand

DSR (Demand Supply Ratio) score of 60. The DSR is a number out of 100 that gauges the demand relative to supply for a residential property market. We look for this to be always over 50. 60 is great, 70 is excellent.
