Surburb overview

Part forest and part beach, Forestville truly has the best of both worlds for lovers of the great outdoors. Residents find comfort in the lull of Forestville, with the oceanfront and native bushlands within reach.

Forestville was all bushland half a century ago and residents had to rely on horses and carts to transport building materials for their home. These home owners didn’t expect that the suburb would grow massively, let alone make millions from their properties. However, despite the appearance of new housing developments, world-class facilities, shopping centres and similar lifestyle blocks, Forestville’s quiet ambiance hasn’t changed. Residents are delighted to go home to the same neighbourhood where kids can cycle along streets safely, and the neighbours are affable.

Investing in Forestville

Forestville is indeed a rarity in terms of rising property values as it separates itself from the rest with over 90 per cent gains in the past five years. Many of Forestville’s residents have become millionaires overnight after reselling their homes to deep-pocketed buyers, as the median home price has reached just a few thousands shy of $1.6 million. Unit costs are also on an uptrend, growing by nearly 70 per cent during the same period.

Real estate authorities forecast that apartment blocks and boarding houses would be more common in the suburb to provide alternative living options to future residents. Old properties in Forestville are being considered for rezoning, such as a local high school that will be turned into a medium-density development and a known hospital.
