In their latest quarterly report, the listed property developer said that sales were moderately above expectations in the quarter and appeared on track to deliver over 5,000 lot settlements in FY20, including around 500 townhouse.

Net reservations increased by 9.7% reflecting an improvement in both customer sentiment and housing market conditions.

This was seen across both their retirement village projects and other communities.

In the quarterly report Stockland said, "we expect FY21 revenue to benefit from market recovery and five new communities driving an increase in settlement volumes above the midpoint of our through the cycle range, together with potential price growth and cost savings."
