Ballarat’s median house sale price jumped 4.6% during the June 2021 quarter resulting in a 14.5% increase over the last 12 months according to figures released by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
Our median house price has reached new record high again of $475,000, up from $454,000 in the March 2021 quarter.
“This result is not surprising and is the biggest quarterly increase since September 2018 and the biggest 12 month increase in the last 5 years. It reflects what we have experienced on the ground as continued demand from buyers outstripped the supply of properties for sale in Ballarat” said Ray White Ballarat Director Phillip Lee. Buyer demand remains strong for both city and lifestyle properties particularly with Ballarat experiencing a strong flow of people living in Melbourne escaping the city life during Covid Mr Lee said.
