The total land value of the Richmond Valley municipality was $1.856 billion in July 2011, up 6% from 2008, according to NSW Valuer-General Philip Western.

In 2008 the 10,106 properties in the area were worth $1.749 billion.

Western’s report showed residential land values generally had a moderate increase in value over the three years, while residential land in the towns of Broadwater, Evans Head, Coraki and Woodburn had just a slight increase in value.

Year-on-year the median residential land value increased 2% from $99,000 in 2010 to $101,000 in 2011.

Prime commercial land in the town of Casino generally experienced a slight increase in value, while fringe commercial land generally had a moderate increase in value. Commercial land in Coraki, Woodburn and Broadwater had slight increases in land value.

From 2010 to 2011 the median commercial land value increased 4% from $111,000 to $115,000.

Industrial land values in the area increased 3%, from $168,000 in 2010 to $173,000 in 2011.

Rural residential land and hobby farms increased slightly in value over three years, with the exception of rural-residential land closer to the coast but west of the highway, which decreased slightly in value.

Rural land values remained steady over the three years despite falling 3.5% from $171,000 in 2010 to $165,000 in 2011.
