Growth slows in wine hub

Postcode: 7277

Median unit price: $303,000

Three-year growth: 8.8%

Just approximately 10 minutes from Launceston, the suburb of Legana is close to the Tamar Valley wineries.

Aside from being along the wine route, Legana is also a short distance from Riverside, putting families in proximity to Riverside Primary School and Riverside High School. The suburb is also home to a shopping centre, supermarkets, cafes, a pub and restaurants. Social activities are centred on sports – the community precinct is home to the Legana Cricket Club and a bicycle dirt jump park.

Following a strong run over the 2013-2018 period, however, Legana’s unit market may be easing up, with value increases going from double-digit to single-digit growth. Nonetheless, Launceston has gotten some shine lately with some spillover from Hobart – coupled with the affordability of Legana apartments and its strong rental returns, we could see things pick up again.
