Sure we all know Sydney is a hot property market. In fact, according to the 13th Annual Demographic International Housing Affordability Survey 2017, Sydney is the second least affordable City in the World, second only to Hong Kong, which I might add has a population of 7.5 million.

The median house price is $1,382,500. Now, how many people have that sort of money? Australia has 5 Cities that are considered severely unaffordable at more than 5.1 times annual household income. Indeed Sydney comes in at a whopping 12.2 times annual household income. With Melbourne not far behind ranking at number 6 in the world’s most unaffordable housing markets.

This magnificent Penthouse apartment is just divine, you know you are now in another league. This is the pinnacle of the property scale and it’s all yours. Throughout the day, you can immerse yourself in the views, and the way the sun dances across the different surfaces on buildings and foliage is fascinating, especially as the sun is wrestling with the horizon and everything turns a yellow hue.

As the dark takes hold, the views become breathtaking, you may very well wonder how you could ever get bored with looking at it. And you are just far enough away from the lights of the City to view the stars. How magical to lay on the rooftop courtyard and look to the sky while you put your day into perspective and contemplate the coming day.

What surrounds you in this sky high paradise? You are surrounded by distinctive furnishings, with some particularly unique pieces.

Camperdown and surrounds things to do.

If surrendering yourself to nature refreshes you and helps you recharge, Why not try a Sydney to Bondi hop on hop off bus tour? Sydney Opera House is well worth a visit and only half an hour away, you can read about its historical significance and may even catch a show while you are there. Or you could try a Blue Mountains wildlife day trip, it would be fascinating to learn about native flora and fauna to the region. Closer to home an afternoon stroll around Blackwattle Bay parklands may be something you would find particularly relaxing.

If that’s not your pace, The Sydney Tower Restaurant buffet is far better value, than you might think. You can check out the Historic Pub Crawl Walking tour, purely for historical purposes, yup, really! You might even enjoy making some new friends while on a small group Hunter Valley Wine and cheese tasting tour.

Why not grab your closest friend and head out for a Sydney Ghost Walking Tour, or perhaps a Sydney Colonial History Walking Tour is more to your taste.

Or would you choose the Gold?

There is a lot $2 million in cashable Gold will buy you. Sure it could buy some of your dreams and aspirations, surely it can buy a whole lot more than that too!

  • Would you retire early?
  • Would you pay out all your debts and live debt free?
  • Would you establish a business that can provide for you into the future?
  • Would you invest it across various asset classes?
  • Would you take an extended holiday?
  • Would you help some family members into an investment that will provide them with a start out?

It is hard to imagine what it would be like to Win a luxury apartment like this one on Parramatta Road. But sure it is harder to imagine what you would spend $2 million on. In some ways, it’s hard to imagine the sheer number of dreams you could knock over with that amount of money. Yet at the same time, it can disappear pretty quickly if you invest in property, where it might only buy two or three properties. I shouldn’t say only because 2 or three houses is all it takes to provide you with an income well into the future, while simultaneously the real-estate would be appreciating in value each year at the same time.

It may be a very difficult decision to make, but that’s not a bad problem to have at all...
