Vacant land has Warrnambool in a standstill: HTW

Warrnambool has had little growth in the median house price over the past six year period, according to HTW’s February 2017 update.

The valuation firm says the oversupply of vacant residential land within Warrnambool is believed to be haltering the growth.

“Similar to 2016, it’s expected that Central Warrnambool will remain the strongest performer in 2017, with high levels of demand and limited supply, driving the increase in capital and shortening of days on the market,” the report says.

HTW tips North Warrnambool and Dennington to remain the affordable pockets suited to first home buyers and families.

Alternatively, areas comprising 1950 to 1980 built dwellings, such as Merrivale and West Warrnambool, should be treated with caution, inspite of relatively good rental returns, the report says.

“Prestige real estate exceeding $750,000 is expected to continue to hold its value in 2017.

“Extended marketing periods generally apply in this sector, which is due to limited buyers.

“Agents however, report realistically priced properties are generating satisfactory interest and in some cases sell in relatively short time frames.”

At the average price of $317,500 a house such as the one at 6 George Avenue, Warrnambool (above) can be bought.

Similarly at the average price of $250,000 a unit such as the one at 2/70 Garden Street, Warrnambool (below) can be purchased.
