Growth was widespread across Melbourne and at both ends of the market – from Toorak to Wyndham Vale and Roxburgh Park. Double digit growth was experienced in Camberwell, Prahran and Richmond. Significant growth was also recorded in affordable suburbs – Hillside in the city’s outer North West, St Albans, Sunshine West and Sunbury. There have been fewer property listings for the quarter, down by around 300 weekly across Melbourne in comparison to last year. While fewer sellers are putting their homes on the market, prices are still extremely solid.
