Decreased Housing Lot Sizes

Demand for real estate is at an all time high, yet value for money is continuing to be subjective.

According to industry analyst BIS Shrapnel, new housing blocks in Australian capital cities have decreased substantially over the last decade. The  surge in the outer-fringe recent development of Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, has seen the median size of housing lots shrink by up to 32 per cent.

What Our Buyers Agents Have To Say

Lot size reduction is a lucrative option for developers to create more blocks in the same area, but how does it impact buyers and the greater community?

Subdued land purchasing and low interest rates over the last few years have lead to an increase in house and land affordability. With smaller blocks becoming an option, the possibility for consumers to buy into the housing market creates a positive opening for many.

Since the property sales decline during the global financial crisis, Adelaide and Melbourne property desire has rebounded, with other states closely on their tail. The option for smaller blocks further promotes industry purchasing and opens the gates to consumer spending directed at the residential sector.

Continued low interest rates and positive consumer confidence leads to more first home owners and those looking to upgrade finding their ideal property. Smaller lot sizes may be the boost the residential construction industry and prospective buyers are looking for.

    I found Mark through Google!!!.
    Since my first meeting I felt so confident in Mark's ability and experience in being able to deliver a great result. I was very much impressed with Mark's service as he made the whole process easier and stress free!!!!

    I am really happy because I bought exactly what I was looking for and it was well under my top budget. Most importantly We did it within few weeks.

    Since day one Mark was very pro-active.

     Mark emailed multiple properties every week within my search parameters and wish list.
     Mark allowed me to be involved as much as I wished.
     Mark inspected the properties I liked.
     Mark explained the positives and negatives about each property.
     Mark held a pre-auction meeting and attended the auction
     Mark's strategies and suggestions like where he’ll stand during the auction, how he’ll handle the negotiation etc. etc. and through to the final shaking of hands inside the house all played out in a positive way.

    Thank you Mark for all your work in getting me the right house for the right price!

    I highly recommend Mark for everybody who wants to find a good place to live or invest.

    Many, many, many thanks!

    Mark was personally recommended to me as someone who could be of real help in appraising my property of interest and subsequently representing me at auction.
    He made time to meet for an initial chat over coffee. I was immediately impressed and relaxed with his easy and honest nature, as well as his willingness to listen to my needs.
    A genuinely nice bloke... well experienced in the RE scene, totally committed to helping his clients.... all in all, a very worthwhile experience.
