Wodonga Property Market Update 2nd Half of 2021

In Q2 2021, Wodonga recorded a median house price of $460,000, and a median vacant land price of $185,000. This represents annual (Q2 2020 – Q2 2021) median price growth of 25.4% for houses and 27.6% for land. Between Q2 2020 – Q2 2021 total sales fluctuated, up by 57.8% for houses (to 232 sales) but slowed by -64.1% for vacant land (to 33 sales). Now is an ideal time for owner occupiers and downsizers to transact, as price growth and an increase in sales numbers indicate real returns in investment. There is an undersupply of vacant land, which creates opportunities for land-owners.
