Wodonga Property Market Update 1st Half of 2022

In Q4 2021, Wodonga recorded a median house price of $480,000 and a median land price of $200,000. This represents annual (Q4 2020 – Q4 2021) median price growth of 23.4% for houses and 33.8% for land. Between Q4 2020 – Q4 2021 total sales slowed, by -1.7% (to 237 sales) for houses, and by -72.4% (to 54 sales) for land. Capital growth has largely been driven by low supply levels that is under-serving higher demand, creating room for more developers to enter the market. Owner occupiers and those down-sizing can benefit from higher returns to their initial capital investment in this market.

Average vendor discounts between Q4 2020 and Q4 2021 have swung to premiums of +1.6% for houses and +3.5% for land, the first time in the past 2-3yrears. The market conditions in Wodonga continue to favour vendors, with buyers having to offer higher than the first list price, particularly for vacant land.

In the 12 months to Q4 2021, the median house rental price increased by 13.2% to reach $430 per week, while average days to let on the market remained at a low 19 days. A strong increase in rental prices and a house rental yield above the Wodonga LGA (4.4%) suggests Wodonga remains a resilient rental market.
