    To make you feel better, the ponds just hit it's two highest sold prices for single storeys... $1.11 and $1.2m in one week... Cashed up buyers fighting over the properties too..

    Nah..not negative on suburb and its inhabitants....but negative as a good investment.

    You have to be kidding to pay 700k for a block...no wucking way...that is going to correct and come down 20-30%....

    The blocks selling for those prices were dual occ blocks from what I see. I know the girl who sold the 500sqm blocks for duplex for 800k.
    Suicidal to pay that amount for land if u can subdivide ay.

    Your money should go to the other estates... The Ponds has been built out for over a year. Only couple lots here and there available.. The prices paid there were cheaper than the prices people have been paying in the last year for H&L in Western Sydney

    Crazy prices and guess people want that sentimental feeling of being able to unpack and saying "It's our home". I live in a shoebox and have no plan to over extend myself for a PPOR during my acquisition period of my journey.

    I live in a neighboring suburb and they have gone up dramatically, particularly in the last 6 months in The Ponds. We were contemplating moving to a bigger place near by but with these prices we have decided to stay put and keep focused on our acquisition journey.

    As mentioned there have been record prices of 1.2 mill in The Ponds recently. More than I want to pay.

    Yup, I agree. This is kind of area that will get hit harder once rates rise or the market turns for whatever reasons...

    Have any stats to support your claim?
    What is "this kind of area"?
    You do realise this suburb was pretty much complete before the rates went down a few years ago so most of em have seen the higher rates..

    Is Ponds seriously considered to be on par with the suburbs that fall under the Hills Shire? (serious question)

    Lets put it this way....the value is driven by the prices certain ethnic groups are willing to pay for it....

    Hi Phantom, what about Marsden Park ?
    At least it is cheaper than The Ponds or Schofields :)

    Yes, I agree with you, my Real Estate agent who offered my this place now laughing at me since I don't take Schofields H&L package earlier this year :-/

    I guess he's right with the statistics below:

    the only place to buy next is Riverstone and Marsden Park, so if anyone of you missed out the deal here, you can register the EOI to my agent which I will give you through PM.

    Hi Phantom
    Buying and selling in the same market is relative really. If you want to upgrade your PPOR (assume you're not renting?) now is as good a time as any. $1.2m is more than many people want to or can afford to pay, but this is not exclusive to The Ponds, or Kellyville or many suburbs that are a similar distance (and property type) from Sydney's CBD.

    These suburbs are popular in the current market because it's still possible to buy out here for less than $900K-1m in many cases, though obviously there's variances between particular suburbs, proximity to planned infrastructure, new vs old, features, size etc.
