1 thought on “West Wimmera Shire, VIC”

  1. Suburb assessment for Kaniva, VIC 3419. Verdict: unfavourable market due to flood zone and low demand rental market.

    Overall, Kaniva is a good fit for a positively geared property due to low typical price and high gross yield of 7.69%. However, there are some unfavourable signals in the rental market.

    Namely there are very few vacancies with a low vacancy rate of 0.78 in Kaniva, which would typically indicate a healthy demand in the rental market. However this is calculated based only on a handful of listings, which are averaging 1 rental per quarter. This diminishes the importance of the low Vacancy Rate criterion. In addition the Rent SI of 3 confirms modest demand for rental properties in this market. It may be difficult finding a tenant in this environment.

    High DoM and Discounting values highlight that this is a buyers market at present time. Due to low market activity this trend may continue well into the future, so disposal of the property may take time.

    Annual Capital Growth is likely to fluctuate between -2% to 5% favouring the mid ranges of this estimate. It is possible that the growth rate cycle in Kaniva will reach another peak in the years 2025-2030, however the prices are likely to remain at their current levels next year.

    If you were to find a quality long-term tenant to maximise the return from high rental yield, it’s possible to achieve an annual ROI in the 5-11% mark. You can then look at your next steps 5 or so years from now, re-evaluating accumulated capital growth at that point. However if a flood occurs, capital gains will suffer.

    Lastly, most in demand property types are 2 and 3 bedroom houses, so if you decide to look for a property in this market, we suggest targeting these in parts of Kaniva less prone to potential flooding.

    Due to limited historical data it’s problematic to discern whether central part or outskirts provide better investment opportunities. Switch to scatter view on the map to understand historical price points and properties sold in Kaniva . You’ll need to pan and zoom to this location.
