Strike While The Iron’s Hot – It’s Time For DIY In Diamond Creek
Anybody with even the slightest knowledge of local and national news knows all too well just how much property prices have exploded over the last several years. The property market ebbs and flows through cycles where it typically stands stagnant for a number of years before a sudden boom hits, and house prices and values increase dramatically. We were due for a boom, and it hit right after COVID-19 did, creating a perfect storm for homeowners and investors.
Diamond Creek has seen a 13% growth in the median house sales price in the last 12 months. The suburb has recorded 165 sales in that time period, where the average home now costs $1,065,000.
As you may expect, the number of bedrooms in your home will affect its value. Three-bedroom homes currently have a median price of $900,000, while four-bedroom homes are sitting at $1,162,500. However, the size of your home is just one factor when it comes to its value and possible sales price. Having a recently remodelled and updated home will likely fetch you significantly more money in a sale than an unrenovated property of the same size and in a similar location.
That’s it— Project Renovation is on!
