By Sarah Wilson

“This increase is not surprising and is the highest quarterly increase recorded over the last ten years. One of the main reasons is the continued demand from buyers outstripping the supply of properties for sale in Ballarat” said Ray White Ballarat Director Phillip Lee.  Buyer demand continues to remain strong for both city and lifestyle properties and with the impending release of Melbourne from the Covid lockdown we expect a surge in Melbourne people escaping the city life to regional Victoria” Mr Lee said.
