House Prices Fall Across 40% Of Sydney

The first three months of the year has seen dwelling values drop in nearly two of five Sydney suburbs, while almost half of all Melbourne suburbs analysed posted value declines according to data from CoreLogic.

The market downturn appears to be gathering pace with 917 Sydney suburbs analysed and 354 recording a fall in median dwelling values. House prices in 189 Sydney suburbs slumped while 165 unit markets weakened during the same period.

Melbourne saw dwelling values across 303 suburbs drop during the same 3-month period — 154 house and 149 unit markets positing price falls.

According to Eliza Own, CoreLogic’s head of research, the largest price decrases were found in some of the most affluent parts of Sydney and Melbourne.

Areas such as Beaconsfield, Newtown and Camperdown notched up some of the sharpest house price falls, 7.2%, 5.8% and 5.7% respectively.

In Melbourne, Cremorne posted the largest house price decline of 6.4%, followed by South Yarra (-4.8%) and  Toorak (-4.4%).

“High-end and inner-city areas are emerging as the first suburbs to experience this shift in market conditions,” Ms Owen said.

“It is likely that slightly tighter lending conditions and higher average fixed rates are hitting the very top of housing markets first.

Interestingly, this trend isn’t Australia wide with Brisbane posting a rise in median values across all 337 house markets analysed while only one out of the 171 unit markets posting a decline.

So too in Adelaide, where all 314 house markets in the analysis saw price increases and only two from the 105 unit markets saw a drop in values.

Elsewhere, Canberra saw dwelling values in seven out of 134 house and unit markets analysed record price decline while six from 55 house and unit markets In Hobart posted a drop.

Perth saw 13.4% of all suburbs analysed record a decline while 18% of the market logged value declines in Darwin.

The ball is in the buyer’s court with this knockdown/rebuild opportunity

Glenhaven in Sydney’s Hills District is one of those areas that locals tend to keep to themselves. Leafy with large blocks on offer, the suburb takes its name from its valley location, with the northern end originally known as the Glen and the southern end called the Haven. 

En route from Parramatta to the Hunter, Glenhaven has become an ideal place for growing families in search of a little more space, or even room to house several generations under one roof.

The challenge is finding properties that tick all the right boxes.

As demand for trades and supply chain issues continue to ease, now could be the right time for a knockdown/rebuild project for would-be buyers looking to create their dream home.

Fairmont Homes specialises in knockdown/rebuild projects in Sydney. General manager at Fairmont Homes, Daniel Logue, said there are key features to look for when choosing a knockdown/rebuild site.

“The key items we look for are the site falling to the street, not to the rear, to help with stormwater drainage as well as access to the site,” he said. “Neighbouring property front setbacks are also important. In some older areas, the older houses are set closer to the street, meaning your new home will have to be set to suit.

“Value for money and the return on the end sale price of the home is another issue.”

If possible, he said designing a home that meets the criteria of the Complying Development legislation will speed up approvals considerably.

While suitable knockdown/rebuild sites can be hard to find in Glenhaven, there are still hidden opportunities if you know where to look.

One block at 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven is ideally suited for rejuvenation. With almost 850sqm to play with, it slopes down to the street and sits between neighbouring properties that have already been stylishly updated.

 

 

An existing basketball court at the rear could provide the perfect teen backdrop to a family home, or it could make way for a larger house with landscaped gardens and pool. Alternatively, it could be the perfect position for a cabana or granny flat to serve as in-law accommodation or a source of secondary income.

With recent sales of completed homes in nearby streets reaching well above $5 million, it’s a great opportunity to make a slam dunk of a buy into one of Sydney’s best kept secrets.
