Two Ballarat suburbs have experienced the strongest median house price growth in Victoria in the last quarter, according to Real Estate Institute of Victoria statistics.
Median house prices in Sebastopol, on the south side of the Goldfields city, increased 16.2% in the September quarter, while prices in Alfredton, on the west side, increased 15% over the quarter, according to the REIV September quarter property update.
They were the two star performers in the city, where median house prices increased 1.8% over the quarter.
The best-performing Melbourne suburbs over the quarter were Thornbury and Yarraville, where the quarterly change was 11.4% and 8.8% respectively.
Both Ballarat suburbs showed strong annual growth, suggesting it’s possibly a longer-term trend.
Median house prices are up 10.9% over the year in Sebastopol and 10% in Alfredton, according to the REIV.
The median house price in Sebastopol is now $254,000, while Alfredton is at $385,000.
