The total land value for the North West region has increased moderately over the 12 month period to 1 July 2016 by 8.0% from $15.22 billion to $16.43 billion, according to the latest report from the Valuer-General.

The Report on NSW Land Values at 1 July 2016 found that rural land values showed the largest overall increase of 8.7% due to improved seasonal conditions over the period.

However rural land values in the LGAs of Gunnedah (0.59%) and Liverpool Plains (1.02%) were steady.

The total residential land value across the region increased by 6.8%.

The highest increase occurred in Walgett (14.1%) following very strong increases experienced in the town of Lightning Ridge (29%).

Residential land values in Tamworth (9.6%) increased moderately due in part to ongoing demand for vacant land in the new estates at Calala and Hillview.

However, residential land values in Gunnedah, Liverpool Plains, Moree and Narrabri remained steady.

Most commercial land values across the region were steady. However, increases of 5% to 7% occurred in the Local Centre zoned areas of Tamworth and Moree.

Walgett commercial land values increased slightly (1.6%).

Industrial land values across the region showed a moderate increase of 6.6%.

Tamworth experienced the highest increase (9.7%) due to limited supply and strong demand for industrial land.
