Maitland Suburb Guide

A place to call home

Known in the real estate world for its desirability by passionate investors, the suburb of Maitland is so much more than a buying and selling hub. It’s the perfect spot to settle down and grow your family – it’s a place to call home.

Maitland attracts buyers from both the Newcastle and Hunter region and externally to the area due to its quality facilities, business hubs, and offering of inner-city style, rural and semi-rural living.


Maitland – going against the NSW house price trend

The median buying price for houses in Maitland is $405,000, and renters are looking at about $368 per week. In the past five years, Maitland has seen a compound growth rate of 7.7 per cent for houses and 4.8 per cent for units. So, properties in this suburb don’t stay on the market for long and have bucked the downward trend that many other regions across NSW have experienced.
