What the real estate agent says...
“Houses on this side of the street all back onto Smiths Creek Reserve, which gives them a great bushland aspect. There aren’t many houses for sale around here at the moment and there have been some big increases in values, in tune with the rest of Sydney. Buyers here are first home buyers and young families looking for value for money. Compared to similar properties with a bushland aspect, such as those in the Shire, prices remain competitive. Rodney and Karina paid a little under $380k for their home in 2009 and as is, it would probably be worth around the $650k mark. Right now, spending money on renovations might not result in a higher selling price. Buyers expect to have to do a bit of work to get something at the right price and demand is so high they are taking properties with scope to making them their own. In saying this, Rodney and Karina are planning to be here at least until the kids leave school so they certainly won’t be out of pocket in the long term.”
