Ballarat’s median house price has reached another new high of $415,000, according to June 2020 quarter figures released by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
“This is great news for Ballarat and reflects what we have been experiencing on the ground” said Ray White Ballarat Director Phillip Lee.
Mr Lee said given the restrictions agents operated under including not being able to conduct open for inspections from late March until mid May, the result showed the continued resilience of the Ballarat real estate market and cemented Ballarat as a great city to invest in.
