Real estate environment
A shift in residential home buyers’ attitude has changed the home property investment landscape in Canberra, with cashed-up buyers opting for modest suburbs with good access to amenities and tourist hotspots over the coveted post codes of Canberra’s inner south. These buyers were mostly residential property investors who were adding a second or third million-dollar property to their portfolio – McKellar was among the top-of-mind locations.
McKeller’s auction market is also showing some positive movements, thanks to record-breaking sales of five-bedroom homes. Currently, mortgage repayments in the suburb of McKellar are still in the middle range, but real estate authorities believe that McKellar’s prices could increase soon. In terms of suburb growth, the government expects the suburb’s population to rise by 0.31 per cent in the next three years.
