Domain reported in March two big sales in Cameron Park which took the suburb ceiling higher for a non-acreage or development site and now another has surpassed those marks as agents report plenty of activity in the suburb.
A home at 11 Shipley Street, marketed by Stone Real Estate, was sold on February 25 for $895,000. Four days later, Belle Property sold 17 Shipley Street for $892,500.
Sam Tsiaousis, of Harcourts Newcastle, sold 3 Sonja Close for $915,000 this month. It was on the market for three weeks with 53 groups inspecting it.
The two-storey home was in the Northlakes Estate and had four bedrooms, indoor-outdoor living, a study, inground swimming pool and positioned on nearly 800 square metres of land in a cul-de-sac.
"This home attracted a lot of interest from local and Sydney buyers looking for that large family home with swimming pool," Tsiaousis said.
"The buyers are finding Cameron Park very desirable as it provides excellent value for money and has ongoing infrastructure planned and easy access to the Hunter Valley and Sydney.
"The market in Cameron Park is very strong considering other parts of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie have slowed over the past 12 months. I think we are close to seeing the first million-dollar, single-dwelling, non-acreage sale for the suburb in the next 12 months."
Stone Real Estate's David Tanchevski echoed the sentiments, saying the suburb was "hot" and adding: "Homes are still selling if it is a good property, priced accordingly and marketed right."
Stone's sale of 11 Shipley Street came after one open home and this month they sold 7 Shipley Street for $735,000 also after the first open.
Harcourts also sold 14 Tenyo Street in Cameron Park this month for $715,000 according to domain.com.au. It was sold after just two days on the market.
According to Australian Property Monitors data, Stone hold the suburb sale record of $1.15 million, set in October last year for a four-bedroom home on 12 acres at 36 Beluga Drive.
