The following statistics give an indication of the health of the property market in Ellenbrook over the last year. I have also provided days on market information for the last 4 months.

Annual Growth in Ellenbrook – 4.5%
Growth of nearby suburb Aveley – 7%
Growth of nearby suburb Henley Brook – 10.7% 

Upper Quartile sales – $500,000
Median Sales – $439,000
Lower Quartile -$402,375

The above information is based on settled sales as at 21 November 2014. From 1st Oct 2013 – 30th September 2014. All information obtained from the Real Estate Industry Of Western Austrlaia (REIWA)

Average days on market for last 4 months.
August – 49 days on market
September – 49 days on market
October – 43 days on market
November – 68 days on market

Thus average time for a house to remain on the market prior to selling for the last 4 months in Ellenbrook is 52 days.

A relocation program is being considered by developers and the government for the abundant kangaroos in the area. Department of Parks and Wildlife said between 150 and 200 kangaroos could be relocated to Gorrie State Forrest block, just south of Chidlow and The Lakes. Culling is not being considered at this stage. Instead the kangaroos will be tranquilized and transported about 50km away.

The wildlife population faces competing with the 4700 eventual homes and two town centres that will be built by Stockland as part of Vale. Stockland say they will retain more than 26 per cent of the site for bushland and wetland conservation and reserves that will be accessible as public open space.

New laws have been introduced that allow councils through council resolution rather than local law to determine where dogs can exercise and where they need to be kept on a leash at all times.

As such the City of Swan has flagged the following parks as proposed parks where dogs must be kept on a leash at all times;

In Aveley
Central Park, Egerton
Egerton Park, Wexcombe Way

In Ellenbrook
Lake Fresca, Ponte Veccio Boulevard 
Moulton Wetlands and Track, Brookmount Drive, 
Mornington Park, Mornington Parkway 
Charlie Gregorani Memorial Reserve, Library Avenue
Brook Park, Paperback Close
Woodlake Park, Waterview Grove

and Sandown Park in Sandown Circle, Henley Brook

Ellenbrook Resident, Kara Ringland welcomes the stricter rules. She volunteers for Ellenbrook Pet Finders and hears about five or six instances every week where pets or owners are attacked or intimidated by dogs. She hopes the stricter rules will help fine people who don’t care about the safety of others by letting their dogs roam free.

I have written previously about how Ellenbrook is the most awarded new town in Australia. This was due to a collaborative approach between town planners, builders, architects and developers from Ellenbrook’s beginning and continues today. In my position as a Real Estate Sales Representative in the area I see evidence of this approach on a daily basis. Beautiful street scapes and well designed gorgeous houses. My new listing at 7 Woodlake Blvd is another testament to Ellenbrooks appeal. 

Elevated, lush retained gardens frame the delightfully appealing street view of this home. Inside a light airy spacious feel is created by vaulted ceilings and ample windows encasing the west side of the house. This lovely generously sized three bedroom two bathroom home is on the market for $490,000.
