Riskwise Property Research has pinpointed Rouse Hill in Sydney’s NorthWest as the suburb most at risk of off the plan apartment settlement problems.

Its data shows that off the plan apartments equivalent to three times the current unit stock is yet to settle over the next two years.

Investors currently comprise 57% of purchasers of the 1000 units in the suburb which is located 50 km from central Sydney.

Rounding out the top three are Norwest and Beaconsfield both of which have off the plan apartment stock equivalent to double the existing number of apartments set to settle in the next two years.

Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide also have suburbs in what Riskwise call the settlement risk “Danger Zone”.
