Redland sees increases in land values
Landowners across the Redlands have today awoken to new land valuations after extensive land sales and economic analysis undertaken by the state’s valuation service.
Queensland’s Valuer-General Neil Bray said the valuations reflected up to date and current land values and showed values in the Redland City Council area had increased by as much as 10.9 per cent overall since its last valuation in 2016.
“Residential land values have been static on the bay islands, while rural residential, commercial and industrial land values increased in Redland City overall,” Mr Bray said.
“Some localities such as Alexandra Hills reflected moderate increases in median values due to a high demand for affordable land, while the median value of residential land at Point Lookout also increased from $435,000 to $520,000.
“The demand for affordable land has resulted in higher increases in value in that market.
“Demand for large home-sites resulted in an overall minor increase to the rural residential median value however there were significant increases to some properties. Rural land increased significantly overall.
“Commercial land value showed a minor increase overall as a result of demand for land to service a growing population, while industrial land value had a slight increase due to low levels of industrial activity in the area.
“Demand for multi-unit land, particularly near the waterfront, has resulted in a minor overall increase in value.
Mr Bray said land valuations are used by councils as a guide to determine what to charge in rates, and for state land tax and state land rental amounts.
“These valuations will become effective 30 June, however I encourage landowners who believe they have additional or new evidence which may alter their new valuation to provide this information through the online objections process via www.qld.gov.au/landvaluation or at the address shown at the top of their valuation notice by 7 May 2019,” Mr Bray said.
