The V by Crown went on sale last week.
Good result was helped by panic buying due to change in stamp duty rules on July 1.

Buyers rush to secure property bonus

Hundreds of property buyers queued in the rain yesterday to secure real estate before changes to stamp duty concessions kick in on July 1. But experts warned the industry could be in for another boom and bust.

Off-the-plan buyers hoping to take advantage of the NSW government's Home Builders Bonus, worth up to $22,490 on a $600,000 property, ventured out as the deadline loomed.

The developers of Parramatta apartment complex, V By Crown, opened their display centre for business yesterday. The director of sales and marketing for the Crown International Holdings Group, Haig Connolly, said most buyers were motivated to get in before the bonus for new properties less than $600,000 was abolished. The bonus will be replaced by a $5000 New Home Grant on July 1.

''It has really lifted interest in the market for properties under $600,000,'' Mr Connolly said. ''The interest is been driven by the fact that it is the last chance to take advantage of that saving.''

The 26-storey V By Crown, due for completion in 2014, comprises 460 apartments. One bedders start at $415,000 and two-bedders at $545,000.

The first stage of the development sold out by 1pm yesterday, with stage two released to meet demand.

A property consultant with the Location Property Group, Anoop Lad, sold 14 apartments in the complex yesterday, 13 of which were under the $600,000 threshold.

But panic buying of off-the-plan property to secure stamp duty concessions could push up prices, negating the discount, the senior economist with the Fairfax-owned Australian Property Monitors, Dr Andrew Wilson, warned.

He said the rush to beat the deadline would have a ''ripple effect'' on the market, including a flattening of the market afterwards.

''There are a lot of queues of people wanting to get the cut price stamp duty and this is what we experienced in 2009-10 with first home buyers,'' he said.

''It resulted in a big surge in house prices. And people end up paying more for their homes than the incentives they are receiving.''

The V shaped pylons seem to be in fashion for colonnades and foyers in Sydney at present. I do like the fact that the entrance is kept nice and simple as well. Not too open.

Looks Very classy. I lived in twin apartment block (gallery) on Cowper street parramatta built by the same company. It had very cheap fittings and was built with inferior products. Hope this one is better quality.

Sadly, that's most units these days. I've replaced just about everything in my unit except for the kitchen and the place is not even 10 years old.

I don't have any facts to back this up, but I'd be happy to put money on this claim: the vast majority of people who live in units are not willing to pay a premium for a quality fitting. We still live in a society where most people grew up in a house, and see units as 2nd best.

I was first to ever live in that particular unit. It was brand new when I first leased it. Within a space of 6 months, kitchen doors starting falling off. Door handles needed replacing, plastic vanities cracked, 1 downlighting fell out of ceiling and you could see sanding marks as Gyprock work was dodgy. Apartment looked good but extremely cheap Chinese fitout. All potential buyers should be wary.

I'm wondering who paid to fix those problems, the owner or the developer?
There must be some warranty period for the brand new apartment?
