DEMAND FOR VACANT LAND ON THE RISE IN WOLLONGONG
Reference - Brendan Crabb, Illawarra Mercury
There has been an increased demand for vacant land within the Illawarra during recent months, one expert says.This includes the demand for vacant land.
"Developers' agents in the larger land release subdivisions in West Dapto and Calderwood are reporting stronger inquiry and a higher level of sales, although competition between estates means some are still offering incentives to entice prospective purchasers," Mr McKenna said.
Prices of resales in Calderwood since August have ranged from $260,000 for a 408sqm corner lot with a split-level elevation to $450,000 for a 740sqm near level corner lot designated by the developer as a duplex lot.
Meanwhile, out at West Dapto, resales have ranged from $357,500 for a 460sqm inside lot situated close to power lines to $435,000 for a 465sqm, gently sloping inside lot opposite Wongawilli ponds.
