I am interested to hear forumites opinions on the new minimum lot sizes from a how easy or hard to sell perspective.
The minimum lot size across Brisbane will be
Low Density Residential 7.5m wide 300m2.
Low Medium Residential 6.0m wide 180m2
I am putting through a lot of 10x15m 300m2 blocks at present (corner sites) but am getting some varied and interesting feedback from Estate agents as to the single 7.5m wide lot
2 lots side by side, terrace houses no worries. But a single lot, that's a different story
The external boundary setback is 1.5m if the adjoining lot is over 400m2 and 1.0m if 400m2 or less. Common side boundary can be zero.
Any and all thoughts appreciated

Friends of mine bought a contemporary style 3 x 2 house on a 6 metre wide block in Subiaco , Perth.
It was separate and a mirror image of the house next door , with a difference looking exterior.
As you know Subi , is close to the city and prices are quite high. They doubled their money in 6 years
There is a demand for this size, if its close to the city, trendy cafes, restaurants , gym ,tennis clubs.
Would appeal to "DINKS", who could afford to get an architect involved, to come up with some great designs.

If estate agents haven't worked in areas of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, where this size is common, then they may have a negative opinion.RPIParticipant@rpiJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 308rob-waParticipant@rob-waJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 36

I'm of the opinion the way to go with these lots is to actually bluid and market/sell…
Takes the focus off the size/ frontage etc..
treat it as a freehold town home site……
