Shepparton’s market is being driven by a splash of spending on public infrastructure as well as a flurry of construction activity for private businesses, according to a recent Herron Todd White (HTW) residential report. 

The current COVID-19 epidemic is going to have a negative impact on key drivers, so it will be interesting to see what impact this may have on the property market in the short to medium term, the valuation firm said.

The report notes many local manufacturing businesses are expanding to larger scale premises, which is having a flow through effect on the whole market.

"As stated in previous Month in Review entries, the hospital expansion is bringing a wealth of jobs for both short term construction and ongoin medical staff, as is private sector allied health work, which is bringing population movements from outside the Goulburn Valley. This has been steady now for the past 12 to 18 months and will continue throughout 2020," the valuation firm said. 

"The land situation in the area is tightening, with a number of larger estates being in their last stages.

"This will start to put upward pressure on land values, the likes of which we haven’t seen in over a decade. This will hit first home buyers the hardest as they make up a large chunk of the new home builder pool," the valuation firm added. 

"Investors are still in the area chasing the strong yields that we have to offer, but the intensity the out of town investors brought six to 12 months ago has cooled off. Unit prices have started to bounce back with a couple of good results recently." 

"Overall the market is still performing strongly with sustainable growth rates. Many agents are reporting sub 30 days on market and have been for an extended period."

Note regards COVID-19

This edition of Month In Review had its topic defined in late February with submissions from our offices collated through to late March. During this period, shifts in the social and economic landscape due to COVID-19 became increasingly dramatic, as demonstrated by the varied information provided by offices over the course of three weeks.
This month’s residential theme on baseline property market drivers remains a common thread, and provides an indication of what influences to monitor as the property sector recovers post-crisis.
