What do the coloured pins (and letters) on the map indicate?

The coloured map icons represent the Price Band Breakdown of all the market activity results. The price bands are determined by grouping up the sales into quartiles and will vary suburb to suburb. (e.g. Bottom 25% of sales, Top 25% of sales etc)

Property investors with a renovation strategy may seek out properties in a lower band ideally located near properties in a higher band and then seek to renovate the property to increase the value. Areas with a higher IQR means the property sale values are more spread out and may have a higher potential for adding value through renovation.

Markers on the map:

  • Unknown Price
  • Low Price Band (e.g. Lowest 25% of results based on price)
  • Low to Mid Price Band
  • Mid to High Price Band
  • High Price Band (e.g. Highest 25% of results based on price)

S indicates a sold property

W indicates a withdrawn listing (where available)

What does Stash Property source Development Applications?

Stash Property sources Development Applications from Planning Alerts. Development Applications (DA) is published on every local council in Australia. In Australia, there are 537 councils. Due to the sporadic nature of data collection, the team at Planning Alerts operate an open source platform that assists in the national collection of this data. The team at Stash actively contribute to the open source platform to ensure this data is as up to date as possible.

There is a list of the planning authorities Planning Alerts currently cover here.

Corner Block

This type of block typically has two or three street frontages, which can be advantageous for both residential and commercial properties. Corner blocks often offer more privacy and natural light than interior blocks, as they have fewer neighboring properties. However, they can also be more challenging to design and build on, due to the need to address sight lines from multiple directions.

Corner blocks also generally have more land and are ideal for developers looking for duplex/triplex opportunities. Access is one of the main selling points of a corner block, allowing garage doors to be tucked away on the side instead of being front and centre of your new dream home.

Days on Market

Days on market (DOM)  is the time properties in the area stay on the market before being sold or taken off the market, calculated over the last 12 months. It reflects the demand and competition for properties in the area.

Dual Access

1. Property with two street frontages:

This type of property borders two streets, essentially having two front yards and potentially two driveways. Advantages include:

  • Increased access and convenience: Easier in and out, better parking options, potential for separate entrances for different uses.
  • Enhanced visibility and appeal: More prominent location, ideal for businesses or properties with high turnover.
  • Potentially higher property value: Dual frontages can often command a premium compared to interior lots.

However, there can be drawbacks too:

  • Traffic noise and exposure: Both sides face street noise and activity, which might not be ideal for everyone.
  • Construction and maintenance challenges: Building and maintaining a property with two frontages can be more complex and costly.
  • Zoning and regulation restrictions: Not all areas allow dual frontage development, so checking local regulations is crucial.

2. Property with shared or separate access points:

This involves a single property having two distinct access points, like:

  • Detached dwelling with a granny flat: Both main house and granny flat have separate entrances, allowing for independent living arrangements.
  • Dual key apartment: A single dwelling divided into two separate, lockable units with shared or individual entrances.
  • Property with rear lane access: In addition to the street frontage, an access point through a lane at the back provides potential for parking, deliveries, or separate entrances.

Advantages of this type of dual access include:

  • Increased rental income or multi-generational living options.
  • Improved functionality and convenience.
  • Potential for higher property value, depending on the setup and location.

Drawbacks might include:

  • Potential for privacy concerns.
  • Additional construction and maintenance costs.
  • **Zoning and regulation restrictions for specific types of dual access.

IQR Variance ( % Median)

The IQR is based on the interquartile range of sales results and might be important for renovators. The IQR is a measure of how spread out the prices of the middle 50% of property sales are clustered. A small IQR means that the middle 50% of property sales are priced closely together. A higher IQR means the property sale values are more spread out and may have a higher potential for adding value through renovation or knock down rebuild.

Market Absorption

Market Absorption is the rate at which available properties are sold in a specific area over a 12-month period, indicating the demand for properties in the area and the overall health of the real estate market.

Owner Occupier

Owner occupier as a percentage of a suburb refers to the proportion of homes in the area that are owned and occupied by their owners, as opposed to being rented out. This statistic provides an insight into the nature of the housing market in a specific suburb.

Rental Yield

Rental yield is the annual rental income from a property as a percentage of its value, calculated over a 12-month period. It provides an indication of the potential return on investment for a rental property.

Rooming Demand

Rooming Demand is an important metric for understanding the balance between the supply and demand for share house accommodation. It provides insights into the availability of rooms and the level of competition among potential tenants. A higher Rooming Demand score suggests that there is a greater number of people seeking share house accommodation compared to the number of rooms available, indicating a competitive rental market.

School ICSEA (Suburb Average)

The ICSEA (suburb average) is the average ICSEA (Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage) score for all Government schools in the suburb. It is a useful indicator of the socio-educational advantage of students in the suburb as a whole.

Suburb Growth

Suburb growth is the change in median home values in a specific suburb over a 12-month period, with a positive growth rate indicating an increase in home values and a negative rate indicating a decrease.

Suburb Median % to List Price

This is the % difference between the suburb median and the listing price of a property on market. This will highlight properties that are priced below or above the suburb median. This is useful for locating less expensive properties in a given suburb for renovation or to maximise rental yields. This may not contain all listings where prices are hidden. Please use as a guide only.
