According to Herron Todd White the price point which most favoured within the Newcastle patch for the 30 to 40 age group of second home buyers and upsizers is between $500k - $700k.

"This demographic of families is purchasing their next home within the price point of approximately $500,000 to $700,000 which will purchase the extra bedroom and second bathroom within the desirable 20 minutes of the Newcastle CBD," HTW said.

"Specifically it is the well performing suburbs of Hamilton, Mayfield, Lambton, Adamstown and Charlestown where capital growth for 2016 is between 5.3 percent and 10.5 percent. 

"There is a combination of factors as to why this price point and demographic is the most active, which also goes hand in hand with why the Newcastle property market is at peak levels.

"Investors are continuing to experience difficulty entering the market due to lending restrictions, even though there is con dence in property growth. First home buyers are having very little success securing a property as the lower end of the market is also in high demand from the same 30 to 40 years age group of buyers who have the skills and experience to extend and renovate."
