Yarrawonga Chronicle, Wed. 17th November, 2010 — 23 growth


Mulwala leads Murray region house growth Over the past 12 months, Mulwala has enjoyed the greatest annual house price growth in the Murray region with an increase of 31.8%.

Balranald (+27.8%), Tocumwal (+24.7%), West Albury (+15.2%), Howlong (+14.2%), East Albury (+11.1%) and Glenroy (+6.6%) have also experienced strong growth. The average Murray house price increase was 3.0% in the past 12 months, to $222,500, which is still -5.3% below their peak of $235,000. Like most regional areas in NSW, some parts of the Murray region’s rebound out of the GFC has not been as strong as recorded in the capital cities, and the region’s average growth appears to be tapering. The findings were released last week in the State of the

State NSW Property Report, a report prepared by RP Data, Australia’s largest property research house, on behalf of St. George Bank. The report shows NSW property prices have stabilised, on average, despite growth in some areas and falls in others. Chief Economist for St George Bank, Justin Smirk, said the pause in average NSW regional property prices offers home buyers a chance to take stock and carefully consider their options. “The good news about the Murray region property market, with rises in some towns and suburbs and falls in others, is it provides an opportunity for well-researched home buyers to carefully weigh up properties and make a smart move into the market. “Affordability remains the biggest factor in NSW given the shortage of new housing.

Focus on Murray: Greatest annual growth in median prices: Suburb Median price Mulwala $290,000 Tocumwal $235,000 West Albury $310,000 Howlong $242,000 East Albury $300,000 Glenroy $307,500 Thurgoona $295,000 Deniliquin $170,000 South Albury $245,000

12 month growth +31.8% +24.7% +15.2% +14.2% +11.1% +6.6% +6.3% +5.9% +5.4%

Areas with higher rising incomes will continue to see increased residential property prices while more affordable housing, typically in lowerincome areas, will remain subdued,” he said. “Over the next 12 to 15 months we can expect to see some moderation in prices in the outer regions of Sydney as well as in certain parts of regional NSW as rising interest rates further constrain affordability of housing. However, given a broad based underlying shortage of housing in NSW it is unlikely that we will experience a collapse in house prices. “Fundamentally the NSW economy remains strong and the insufficient supply of new housing means affordability remains the biggest hurdle to potential purchases,” said Mr Smirk. 

Most expensive suburbs (by median price): Suburb Median price Albury $346,500 West Albury $310,000 Glenroy $307,500 East Albury $300,000 Thurgoona $295,000 Mulwala $290,000 Moama $280,000 Gol Gol $253,000 South Albury $245,000 Howlong $242,000

12 month growth -3.9% +15.2% +6.6% +11.1% +6.3% +31.8% +0.9% -8.0% +5.4% +14.2%


Car parking survey for Belmore Street Moira Shire Council is currently sharing a Car Parking Utilisation Survey commissioned by Vic Roads to help plan for future parking facilities in Yarrawonga.

The survey aims to identify parking demand and current parking trends and forms part of a Car Parking Review implemented by Moira Shire aimed at identifying future parking

requirements in relation to the upcoming developments at the southern end of Belmore Street. Director of Development, Richard Whiting, said parking time limits will be reviewed as part of the study to ensure consistency with revised line marking and streetscape improvements in accordance with Australian Standards. “Additional signs and directional signs to off-street car parking will also be installed as part of the review,” Mr Whiting said. In September Moira Shire Council proposed a planning amendment C56 where new supermarkets in Yarrawonga will only require five parking spaces per 100sqm rather than the current eight spaces. Amendment C56 also stated new shops would require four spaces, down from eight. The amendments allowed for a cash contribution of $8,060 per space to be paid to council in lieu of the required spaces in situations where parking cannot be provided on site. “The in lieu cost hasn’t changed as part of this amendment and council will continue to subsidise the cost of parking,” Mr Whiting said in September. “That takes into account the idea that people don’t necessarily park in a different place each time they visit a shop, you would hope they park in a convenient area and visit two or three shops at a time”. Mr Whiting said there are no plans before council at this time to implement parking metres along Belmore Street.
