Property’s accidental sale

Land cost up, sales go down

AN ACCIDENTAL encounter, has led to the sale of one of Geelong’s most recognised historic homes, according to a real estate agent. Australian Property Investor selling agent Toby Primrose said the sale of Chipchase, at 8-10 Ryrie Street, to a Melbourne buyer was “almost by accident”. “I can’t disclose the price it was sold for but I can say it was within the advertised range of $1.2 to $1.4 million,” he said. “I can say that the buyers are from Melbourne and it’s interesting because he actually found the property by accident when he was visiting Geelong to look at a property for a workmate. “He found this one by mistake.” Mr Primrose said the new owner would use the stately home as a private residence despite its history as a doctor’s surgery and later a bed and breakfast. “The buyer had just sold his property in Melbourne and fell in love with the house. Unexpected: A stately home in Ryrie Street has been found accidently by a Melbourne buyer. “It’s just one of those freaky things “There was steady interest in it but home’s design was modelled on a cosy single nook corners, built-in that happen sometimes. “He’s planning to use it as a mixture of Queen Anne revival and window seats, original fireplaces it was a special kind of property because of its higher price range and private residence, not for any contemporary bungalow style with with mantels.

AUSTRALIA’S housing affordability problems are “spiralling out of control”, according to new Housing Industry Association statistics. The HIA-rpdata.com statistics, released last week, revealed land sales volumes were at a 10-year low and prices were soaring. The statistics showed a 57 per cent decrease in land sales during the past year. Australia’s median land value increased 2.8 percent to $186,000 in the same period. HIA senior economist Andrew Harvey said residential land in capital cities grew 5.3 per cent while regional land values increased 4.4 per cent. “The results show further increases in land prices and very low sales volumes, both of which bode poorly for housing supply and affordability in Australia,” Mr Harvey said. “Land price appreciation is a key cause of Australia’s housing affordability problem, with higher prices falling through the residential market pushing up the price of both new and existing houses.” RPdata.com senior research analyst Cameron Kusher predicted soaring land costs would impact the “existing housing product”. “When you add on top of the land cost, professional fees, government charges and the actual cost of constructing a home, it’s no surprise that many.”

newhomes&land ‘Rosy’future expected for new home building

D

espite “challenges” for Australia’s housing industry, 2011 is set to be a “strong” year, according to a GJ Gardner spokesperson. GJ Gardner Geelong managing director Rohan Smith says “strong levels of work and local activity” will bolster a weakening Victorian market. “Yes, nationally it seems obvious that certain markets are weakening and we see it in the numbers for our GJ Gardner offices with nine of the top 20 offices located in Victoria,” he says. “This bodes well for those Victorian offices as many of the larger offices in our group are located interstate but with Victoria averaging at approximately 61,000 dwellings built annually twice as many as either New South Wales or Queensland. Strong levels of work and activity locally should be experienced in the new year. “I have been quite surprised to hear some negativity in the recent national statistics as anyone who understands this industry knows that we have come off a high level of activity due to the First Home Buyers Grant in 2009 and it was inevitable that long term trends will be the norm.” Mr Smith says recent Housing Industry Association statistics paint a “rosy” outlook for new home building in Victoria. “This is good news for all of my colleagues in the industry locally as factors

such as the ever growing demand from sea changers and the ongoing improvements to the highway will inevitably increase demand for our precious coastal real estate.” But Victorian home-buyers face “a number of challenges” including a lack of consistent and regular material supply, he says. “One of the many means to achieving this is ensuring that the Industry maintains pressure on the local authorities to improve services and streamline processes to strip back the layers of unnecessary delays. “In a broader sense however I strongly believe that it is not all doom and gloom for housing and that locals should generally feel confident in the property market.” Mr Smith says 2011 will see “a number of terrific new development releases”. “Phillip Island has seen activity in the Shearwater, Seagrove, Justice and Whyte Sands releases in 2010 and with some major releases in Wonthaggi coming on stream, the signs are good for local trades. “As much of this is price driven with households forced to continually watch there exposure to interest repayment, the issue of interest rates is an interesting one and cannot be overlooked.” He encourages anyone looking for a new home to drop into the GJ Gardner new home display centre at 228 Moorabool Street, Geelong or call 5221 1447.

It also means we are contactable throughout the entire building process to answer any questions that clients might have.” Visit Peter Scott and Peter Walters at the beautiful Beachview 340 Display Home at 1 Nautical Rise, The Quay Estate, Torquay. The display home is open 1pm to 5pm Saturday to Wednesday. More information is available by phoning sales director Lyn on 5261 2866 or 0434 730 962.
