Proximity to the river is a big one- even if it is on the other side of the hwy! Location near shops and parks is also important and then it comes down to perceived good and bad areas. Top End near the highway is good. Quality of housing will start to be important now that all the old places are being knocked down and there will be no character left. THe size of the land is important for the overall value of any property in the area because larger equals development prospects with the right zoning.
