In the Illawarra overall the number of listings - the homes that are up for sale - has dropped by just under five per cent.
However, there are a handful of suburbs which are much in demand, as their listing numbers have dropped even more.

Television veteran Larry Emdur and wife Sylvie have returned their Kangaroo Valley property to the market.
The property was listed for sale in February 2022 before being withdrawn from the market in March this year.

It's been re-listed with a price guide of $3 million.
