Total sales decreased in Q1 2021 – Q1 2022, by -18.3% (to 103 sales) for houses and by -60.0% for units (to 16 sales). The Dapto house and unit markets are undersupplied, as median price growth is alongside lower sales figures. Now is an opportune time for owners and downsizers to capitalise on their capital investment, and for developers to enter the Dapto market.

House buyers still need to offer above the first list price, as per the past 5 quarters. However, Q1 2022 records the lowest average vendor house premium, thus an opportunity for buyers.

This was paired with a 14.6% increase in median house rental price (to $550 per week) in the 12 months to Q1 2022, and a -12.3% decrease in the number of houses rented. There was also a -6.3% decrease in average days to let, which when combined with other factors suggest an undersupplied rental market. In the current market conditions, it is evident that Dapto is an affordable investment alternative to Sydney Metro.

4+ bedroom houses have provided investors with +10.0% rental growth annually, achieving a median rent of $550 per week.
