Perth, 27 February 2017 – Close to 15,000sqm of developable land in Perth’s southern suburbs has been listed for sale in a move expected to generate strong interest from developers looking to capitalise on the state’s increased First Home Owners Grant.
CBRE’s Ryan McGinnity and Matthew Elliott have been appointed to sell 535 Millar Road in Wellard – comprising 14,668sqm of ready to develop land fronting the Kwinana Freeway.
Wellard, located approximately 38km south of Perth, is one of the city’s fastest growing suburbs, with a population growth rate of 5.16% per annum expected to boost the area’s residential base to about 21,000 by 2036.
Mr McGinnity said the opportunity came at time when Western Australia’s residential market had received a considerable boost with changes to the First Home Owners Grant.
“Given the State Government’s recent decision to increase the First Home Owners Grant to $15,000 for new builds, residential development opportunities in high growth suburbs such as will be of strong interest to developers,” Mr McGinnity said.
“With development approval to accommodate 22 green title lots, this property presents an attractive opportunity to undertake a residential project in a proven growth area.”
Mr Elliott said the property’s close proximity to a wide range of amenity would further enhance its residential development appeal.
“Located about 4.7km from the Wellard Town Centre, this property is located nearby public transport networks, nature reserves, shopping centres and a host of schools,” Mr Elliott added.
The property is being offered for sale via Private Treaty, with expectations of around $2.1 million.

The current investment landscape in Australia is driven by a range of factors, not least the 2019 federal election, and the view is that the result of the Wentworth by-election, a seat that has historically been monopolised by the Liberal Party, will be the foreshadowing of the federal outcome. The Australian equities market is experiencing volatility, with a 200 point drop last week in the S&P ASX index, the largest drop this year and potentially the result of sentiment surrounding geopolitical headwinds with the latest developments relating to the trade war between the USA and China. Global bond rates remain low, and despite incremental increases, interest rates are too low to be attractive from an investment perspective.
In an ongoing low-interest rate environment on savings and with banks withdrawing from property and construction financing, investment groups like Centennial Property Group are seeing value in providing first mortgage funding for property development, recently settling a $48m loan for a mixed-use retail/residential development in Sans Souci, NSW
With the combined influences of a cooling residential property market and heightened bank scrutiny on all aspects of real estate lending, traditional debt sources are, in many cases, closed to developers and commercial real estate investors, particularly where circumstances require a specific funding solution.
