Our Backyard, leading the way

The State Government has just released the Victorian Property Sales Report, which shows Aireys Inlet as topping Geelong and The Surf Coast Shire for the greatest increase in Median house prices in the past year, up 43.4% to $629,000. In fact the three biggest movers were all coastal towns, Aireys Inlet, Anglesea (19.8%) and Apollo Bay (19.5%).

This is the first real evidence available to demonstrate exactly what coastal agents have been talking about for the last couple of years. The Geelong Bypass!


If you watched ‘Coxy’s big break’ on the T.V. last Thursday night you would already know that Torquay was officially crowned the Best Holiday Destination in Victoria!

The focus of Coxy’s report was the beach lifestyle and he highlighted the variety of clean safe beaches together with the many associated activities such as Surf Life Saving and the ‘Nippers’ programs for the kids. Access to Melbourne via the new ring road also featured alongside the many cafes, restaurants and shopping choices.

REIV predicts next hot spots
Lorne and four other Melbourne suburbs will be the hottest places to own real estate in Victoria by 2015.

The five locations are expected to see the biggest rises in home values, according to forecasts released exclusively to the Sunday Herald Sun by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria this week.

Lorne, Toorak, Carlton, Spotswood and Skye, where would you rather live? Or at least holiday?

All are forecast to post strong property price growth in the next three to five years, REIV chief executive Enzo Raimondo said. Aside from the economy, population change and housing supply will have the most influence on house prices in the next decade, he said.

The purchase and selling of real estate can be a confusing process for many people and this confusion often multiplies when it comes day 5th December
