Sydney Homeowners Sitting on “Golden Lands”

Sydney homeownersNick Bendel writes an article for the Adviser where he says that the value of land has spiked phenomenally all across Sydney. The Harbour City has witnessed an increase of 19.6% in land value, taking the overall value to $1.34 trillion by the end of financial year 2014-15. That means the average Sydney homeowners are practically sitting on “golden lands”, so to speak.

The success of various local governments

Eight out of nine local government areas experiencing 30% or higher growth are located in Sydney. The median residential land value of Blacktown shot up by 47.1% making it the fastest growing area in Sydney. The median for Blacktown stands at $375,000. Areas like Randwick, Parramatta, Holroyd and Shellharbour have also seen land values shooting fairly high.

Woollahra and Randwick among the star performers

While Mosman, Woollahra and Waverly were already in the $1 million median club, Randwick, Canada Bay, North Sydney and Lane Cove have joined them. Eight local governments have seen a dip in land values but all of them fall outside of Sydney. The valuation which the article talks about is only meant for land and not homes and associated improvements.
