Positive conditions have instilled a high degree of confidence in the Echuca and Deniliquin regions, according to the valuation firm Herron Todd White’s latest rural report.

A well above average season in regard to crop and fodder is expected due to most of the area receiving around 100 millimetres of rain throughout autumn, plus good follow-up winter rainfall, says HTW director John Henderson.

“The overall result of this confidence in the seasonal outlook in the area has translated to a rising market”, Henderson said.

Some degree of uncertainty about the outlook for commodity prices in the short-term remains.

The report noted recent sales that showed a $1,000 per hectare rise, including a batch of well-developed irrigation properties close-by the Finley district sold for $5,435 to $6,175 per hectare.

This is compared to similar properties which sold for $4,570 to $5,065 per hectare in December 2018 to February 2019.

“The rising market is a feature of most of southwest New South Wales and northern Victoria, with agents reporting strong enquiry in the region.”

The general outlook for the region is for rural values to continue to rise.

However, the report notes that uncertainty around key commodity prices may start to influence decision-making in the near future.
