“There was significant interest in all four listings,” Mr Heaton, Head of Private Clients, said.
“We are moving into a market where yield is everything, as a result of such a low return on money in the bank.”
The Woollahra property contains the most individual apartments at 24, followed by 22 in Cremorne, 12 in Glebe and five in Paddington.
“Our buyers are coming from all over Sydney,” Mr Lowry said.
“They will consider apartment blocks on the North Shore, Eastern Suburbs, city fringe, Inner West and South Sydney; they just want to be within 10km of the Sydney CBD, where vacancy rates are low and renting the apartments is easy.”
The CBRE apartment block sales team has sold 26 apartment blocks and nearly 500 apartments in 2019.
It has also noted a shift in yields from approximately 4.5% to 3.5% in the past three months amid interest rate cuts.
“The Inner West is the number one priority for investors when it comes to submarkets within Sydney, given the forecast investment in infrastructure,” Mr Fenn said.
“Significant population growth is anticipated for the Inner West, which creates the best environment for rental growth.”
