Moonee Ponds overlooked beauty makes debut at number three on SQM discounted properties list

Moonee Ponds overlooked beauty makes debut at number three on SQM discounted properties list
Cassidy KnowltonDecember 8, 2020

A Moonee Ponds property has appeared third on SQM Research's list of the 10 most discounted properties in Australia, which this week contains no units, only houses. 

Some of the houses on the list have been on the market for years, with SQM director Louis Christopher pointing out that the ninth-ranked property, 1302 Birkdale Place, Magenta on the NSW central coast, has been on the market for 1,446 days, or almost four years. Its price hopes have been reduced by $250,000, or 36%, in that time.

"We have seen a lot of price slashing occurring on the central coast, with many homes either stagnating in value or decreasing over time," Christopher says. 

"A region that was not too long ago a hotspot for Sydneysiders who desired an affordable seaside home, the central coast property market is softening considerably, with a vast supply of homes on the market priced to sell. This could be partially due to the fact that the area is highly reliant on tourism, a facet of the Australian economy that has suffered substantially over the past two years. The NSW central coast also has a pretty narrow based economy and with the high rate of supply added to the property market over time, it is understandable that there has been an oversupply of real estate in the area."

In contrast, 60 Margaret Street, Moonee Ponds, has been on the market for just over a year, and its vendors have this week slashed its $1 million price hopes by 38%, to $620,000. It is currently operating as a beauty salon. It last sold in 2008.
