Property Listings Increasing as Stability Builds Confidence


House values in Melbourne have risen for nine consecutive months with clearance rates remaining steady within the mid 70 per cent range for the last 5-6 months. The Miles auction clearance rate is sitting higher at 85 per cent. The median house price for Melbourne is $938,000 and national values have risen 6.6 per cent since January, with further gains expected towards the end of 20231.

The short to medium forecast for Melbourne house prices in 2024-25 is also positive with KPMG2 predicting increased demand which will out strip supply and is being challenged by the dual forces of population growth and a slowing of construction. They are predicting 8.5 per cent growth in 2024 and 12 per cent growth in 2025. So, the housing short fall will likely continue ultimately underpinning values going forward.

With these positive economic indicators, we’ve seen an improvement to the overall seller sentiment with an influx of vendors returning strongly to the market. This is great news for many buyers who have been waiting for Spring stock and now have more choice with a great range of houses, units and apartments coming to market. The tight rental vacancy rate is resulting in more purchasers being added into the buyer pool as many seek to make the leap from renter to owner.

Closer to home here in Banyule, the North-East Link is due be competed in 2028 and will slash the commuted time into the CBD by up to 35 minutes as well as taking 15,000 trucks off local roads reducing congestion. It will also provide greater accessibility through to the eastern suburbs and further integrate into the public transport network making it easier and quicker for people to get to and from work and study.

So, if you have been considering investing or moving into the north-east pocket of Melbourne, now is an ideal time. We have observed over many years the increasing popularity of this side of the city due to the excellent amenities, the green wedge environment and improved infrastructure all contributing to the overall livability for people of all ages and stages.
