NSW's Griffith residential market is approaching its peak, according to Herron Todd White’s April report.

The property valuation firm says that values have increased over the past six to nine months.

“The Griffith residential property market appears to be approaching the peak of the market.

"Values have been increasing in most market segments over the past six to nine months largely due to a shortage of stock relative to demand.

"The fear of missing out is pushing more affordable brackets ($250,000 to $350,000) well above expectations.

"The rise in the market is not limited to entry and middle market segments with buyers in the upper end of the market also showing a strong appetite producing strong results,” the report stated.

Low interest rates, shortage of land and optimism is driving the market at the present moment.

“So what is driving the market at present?

"A combination of things, including low interest rates, a shortage of land and the biggest factor being the optimism in the local agricultural sector and its impact on employment and investment.

"So what is likely to slow it down?

"The cost of money rising (interest rates), employment instability, the release of more land and the inability of the economy to retain its confidence,” the report warned.
