NSW: Baulkham Hills tops the charts for those looking to buy bigger homes

BONDI or Manly might be what the world thinks of when it comes to living in Sydney but locals who actually want the Australian dream of a family home with a backyard go to one place — Baulkham Hills. The suburb, which is split between the Hills Shire and Parramatta councils, was the most popular area in the country for families wanting four-bedroom houses. It was also the most coveted location for buyers of all house types in the Greater Western Sydney area, with buyer demand nearly doubling since 2019, according to a measure of online search activity. Adjacent suburbs North Rocks, Winston Hills, Kings Langley and Castle Hill rounded out the top five most viewed suburbs more than 15km west of the CBD. “Baulkham Hills is off the charts right now,” chief economist Nerida Conisbee said. “It’s always been popular with families but now it’s huge.” The increased interest in the northwest coincided with the opening of the Sydney Metro Northwest train line in May last year. The line connects much of the region to Sydney’s north shore and beyond. Housing experts said the region’s increased popularity was also due to its proximity to Sydney’s second CBD at Parramatta — and the big houses on large blocks. Additional Australian Post Office data revealed the region accounted for the bulk of suburbs with the most requests to redirect mail from newly moved NSW families and households between 2013 and 2019. Kellyville residents used the most redirect services, followed by Castle Hill, Port Macquarie, Mosman and Baulkham Hills. One of the biggest contributors to Kellyville’s growth was the North Kellyville housing estate, which effectively doubled the size of the suburb.

Kellyville review

Introduction Kellyville is a suburb of Greater Western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 36 kilometres north-west of the Sydney. It is part of the Hills District region. Parts of Kellyville have become separate suburbs over the years. Beaumont Hills, north of Samantha Riley Drive, was renamed in 2002.

Kellyville Public School is a historic building which was established in 1873. Kellyville Village features a Coles supermarket and 38 stores with services, groceries and fashion. The newly opened North Kellyville Square provides a Woolworths and specialty stores to the area. Kellyville offers a relaxed and quiet lifestyle being surrounded by rural areas and suburban Castle Hill, Baulkham Hills and Glenhaven. Benefits Kellyville, as with other newer suburbs in both the south-west and north-west districts of Sydney, has been viewed in the media as a suburb of larger homes that are low-cost in design and mediocre in terms of build quality. Kellyville, in particular, is known for its greenery and big family homes complete with spacious gardens and swimming pools. Kellyville is close enough to the city that you can pop there and back as often as needed. In addition to its residential areas, Kellyville also has its own shopping centres, cafes and specialty stores. Challenges There is only really one road that leads into Kellyville and that is Windsor Rd. As a result it gets really jammed up during peak hour and there is no other way in!

The centre includes a wide range of retail services such as health and wellness providers, professional beauty services and newsagency. Types of houses and dwelling density Dwelling Type is an important determinant of Kellyville's residential role and function. A greater concentration of higher density dwellings is likely to attract more young adults and smaller households, often renting.

NSW: Home prices in Sydney have been falling faster as the economic fallout from coronavirus deepens

Property values fell in June by double the rate they did over May, with the median home price down 0.8 per cent, CoreLogic’s hedonic home value index revealed. The median price of a freestanding house was $1.01 million, 0.9 per cent lower than at the start of June, while the median unit price was $761,000, 0.6 per cent lower. The stimulus, along with record low interest rates and bank support for struggling mortgagees, prevented mass distressed sales that would otherwise have sent prices plummeting, Mr Lawless said. “It’s encouraging to see lenders have recently hinted at an extension in their repayment leniency policies (but) government stimulus will eventually taper and banks will require borrowers to repay their loans,” he said. The 0.4 per cent average fall in values over May was the first time Sydney home prices had dropped in close to a year. Home values inched up 0.4 per cent during the height of lockdown measures in April and there was also an increase in values over March. Source: x Home prices fall at double previous rate in Sydney... Home prices were largely unaffected by the weaker economy when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit but this has begun to change, with prices falling by the biggest margin in more than a year.
