The total land value of Boorowa region in NSW decreased 3.5% from 2008 to 2011, according to NSW Valuer-General Philip Western.

The combined value of the 1,957 properties in Boorowa dropped to $403 million in July 2011, down from $417 million in 2008.

Western found residential land generally had a slight increase in value, bolstered by increased interest from Canberra over the three years.

Commercial land values had a generally moderate increase in value, including smaller lots along Marsden Street.

Rural land values experienced a slight decrease, with mixed farming properties generally suffering a bigger fall.

Hobby farms had an overall slight decrease in land values, while the more remote areas of Taylors Flat, Reids Flat and Wyangala had a moderate decrease.
