Dapto Property Market Update 1st Half 2023

In Q1 2023, Dapto recorded a median house price of $782,500, and a median unit price of $610,000. This represents annual (Q1 2022 – Q1 2023) median price softening of -3.8% for houses and -11.6% for units. That said, on a quarterly basis (Q4 2022 – Q1 2023) median house price grew by 0.3% and median unit price declined at a slower rate of -4.3%. Thus, cash rate hikes did translate into the market, but consumer confidence have returned. In the past 12 months sales declined by -2.6% (house), thus an undersupply is evident. For those looking for a more affordable market, time is of the essence.

Average vendor discounts between Q1 2022 and Q1 2023 have swung from a premium of 1.2% to a discount of -4.1% for houses. Units have shifted to a higher discount, of -3.9%. Market conditions favour buyers, as sellers are willing to accept below the first listing price. That said average vendor discounts have stabilised in the past quarter, thus time is of the essence for buyers.
