“The Ballarat market remains very buoyant with demand from buyers continuing to outstrip the supply of properties for sale in Ballarat” said Ray White Ballarat Director Phillip Lee. “We are continuing to see strong demand for both city and lifestyle properties as the strong flow of people escaping the city life to regional Victoria continues” Mr Lee said.
