A great suburb indeed other than the smell from the paper mill is a constant problem. It smells like sulphur dioxide or rotten eggs.

Traralgon is a very nice suburb. I have lived here for 7 years. It has character houses, is relatively cheap, great amenities, good night life, an hour from the beach and snow, 10 mins from the bush and a bit under 2 hours from the city.

Traralgon is a great place to live for families. Great schools, shopping, entertainment, parks and business opportunities and lots of different areas to live. As for being friendly and neighbourly - you get back what you put in!

Traralgon is a very convenient location which has almost everything at its doorstep. Its a good dwelling place for families with young children as it has good schools in the proximity, great parks and other activities.


It is almost 2 hours drive from Melbourne. It is pretty safe area to live.

VIC: Feb 2020 Melbourne market update

Despite the recent downturn, Melbourne continues to record a high rate of seller satisfaction, beating other major capital city markets across Australia. How will the Victoran capital fare for the rest of the new year? RateMyAgent’s latest Price Expectation Report, which surveyed more than 40,000 Australians, showed a significant increase in overall national satisfaction, led by an explosive recovery in metropolitan Melbourne and Sydney, where satisfaction rates rose five to six times higher in just 12 months. According to RateMyAgent’s CEO Mark Armstrong, the results show just how far the property market has recovered, with happiness doubling in the year nationally, strong gains in metro areas and a surging Victorian market leading the charge. “As we look to the year ahead there are plenty of reasons for optimism,” Mr Armstrong highlighted. The peak in happiness was seen most significantly across the Victorian market, with the state (55 per cent) overtaking Tasmania (51 per cent) this quarter as Australia’s happiest state. Apart from leading in seller satisfaction, Victoria’s Melbourne also has the second-highest median price in Australia, giving buyers the confidence to venture to Melbourne’s fringes, which are expected to display accelerated growth moving forward. In the top 20 happiest places nationally, Victoria has taken out the most regions (11), followed by NSW (seven) and Tasmania (two). Victoria holds six of the top 10 regions nationally. Property values CoreLogic’s February 2020 Home Value Index has found a rebound in the pace of capital gains across the Australian housing market throughout the month, seeing the national index rise by 1.1 per cent. The strongest capital gains were recorded in Sydney, at 1.7 per cent to $872,934, and Melbourne, at 1.2 per cent to a median house value of $689,088. On an annual basis, both cities have returned to double-digit annual growth rates, with values up by 10.9 per cent and 10.7 per cent, respectively. According to CoreLogic, the latest results “continue the recovery trend that has been running since June last year”. Melbourne was highlighted as being the “most recent city to stage a nominal recovery, with housing values surpassing the September 2017 peak last month”. The Victorian capital joins Brisbane ($503,265), Canberra ($631,862), Hobart ($488,968) and Adelaide ($439,453) in reporting housing values at record highs. For investors who are looking for more affordable entry points to the capital city markets, CoreLogic’s head of research Tim Lawless said that they find it more practical to narrow down their property search by examining lower quartile values. The lower quartile – or the most affordable 25 per cent of properties in a region – would provide a better view of the market entry point, according to him. Supply and demand According to the latest days on market data from the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV), the average Melbourne house takes 34 days to be sold – down from 42 days from the corresponding period in 2019. Outer Melbourne is the fastest selling area in Metro Melbourne, with suburbs in the outer ring taking just 33 days to sell on average, followed by Middle Melbourne with 34 days and Inner Melbourne with 41 days on market. Outside the city, regional Victoria homes are seeing 55 days on average. This is down from the 57 recorded in November 2019. Warranwood and Montrose in Melbourne’s east have the shortest waiting periods across the state, with the average property taking just 15 and 16 days to sell, just over two weeks. Rental market Low vacancy rates continue to put pressure on leaseholders, ultimately affecting renters across Victoria, according to data collated by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV). Median rent for houses in Melbourne remained at $480 per week, but median rent for apartments saw an increase, with the average price now sitting at $445 a week. Still, Victoria’s rental market remains tough after another month of low vacancy rates, with the metro remaining at 2.2 per cent and regional vacancy rates for January being 1.7 per cent. “There is a strong demand for more rental properties, and sadly many families are still struggling to get a rental home,” Ms Calnan said. With new rental laws being introduced by the Victorian government, landlords are apprehensive about how the regulations will affect them, adding to the rental shortage in Victoria. Strategy Despite affordability issues, early interest and activity from investors seeking “premium” investment opportunities in 2020 have been recorded in Melbourne – a sign that such assets will only increase in popularity in the months to come, according to Colliers International Melbourne. The company’s metro sales director Ted Dwyer and associate director Ben Baines have indicated that despite a marked decrease in activity around “trophy” assets in 2019, premium investments were still considered a lucrative investment. In fact, appetite for these assets saw Victoria receive a 70 per cent clearance rate. This result is only expected to go higher through 2020. The Colliers International metro sales team reported 119 premium investment transactions in Victoria for 2019 – a total of almost $365 million worth of sales. Activity was most prominent in the metro region, where investors competed for service stations, banks and fast-food assets. The average yield for premium metro assets last year was 5.27 per cent, while regional assets achieved an average yield of 6.4 per cent.

VIC: Spike in the Melbourne land sale shown in the last quarter

According to RPM Real Estate Group’s Q4 Residential Market Review, the total number of lot sales across Melbourne and Geelong’s land market increased 17 per cent to 3,185 for the December quarter when compared with the previous quarter. This jump is up 34 per cent from the same period last year. RPM’s head of communities, Luke Kelly, said buyers are seeing value in the land market, given they can negotiate a well-priced larger lot, with developers keen to move returned titled stock and unsold lots. “The key drivers underpinning a strengthening land market included improved buyer sentiment and activity from interest rate reductions and more borrowing power, ongoing price correction and continued incentives and rebates,” Mr Kelly said. In dollar value, the research found that Melbourne’s median lot price declined 2.1 per cent to $308,900, which Mr Kelly said is “partly due to a reasonable amount of unsold or overhand stock on the market”. “In addition, rising values in the established market and moderating prices in the land market has reduced the land price to house price ratio, meaning buyers are seeing more value in a block of land or a house and land package rather than an existing house,” he added. Furthermore, the research indicated investors are seeing increasing opportunity in Melbourne’s greenfield market – “jumping from a share of 24 per cent of all purchases to 37 per cent in the December quarter”.

The Morrison Government has extended the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme

One month in and the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme has already attracted more than 5500 keen first-time buyers – and the race is on for purchasers hoping to be approved before the 10,000 coveted places are snapped up. Although the Federal government’s scheme has attracted both positive and negative attention from inside and outside the property industry, when it comes to those first-home buyers who’ve signed up, the good news is in. Apply now, buy later Despite the fact that more than half of the FHLDS spots have already been allocated through major banks (mostly the Commonwealth Bank and National Australia Bank), and hundreds of applications and inquiries are being made each week, there is still time for first-home buyers to apply according to Glen Spratt, managing director of non-bank lender Mortgageport. “There are still spots available with the smaller panel of 25 lenders,” he said. “And that’s really what the scheme was supposed to be all about – creating more competition in the lending space,” he explained. Mr Spratt said the key message to first-home buyers seeking access to the scheme right now is to not just focus on the big banks, but consider talking to one of the other 25 lenders working with the FHLDS.

Some good news for the buyers in the coming months as more properties listed for sale

Property buyers can expect some respite from surging Sydney home prices in March and April as homeowners bring more properties to the market. The current low listings environment has been a significant driver of the 10.5 per cent jump in home prices recorded over the past six months. There are currently fewer Sydney homes for sale than in Brisbane, despite the Harbour City being double its size, and current listing volumes are down a quarter from this time last year. Demand, meanwhile, skyrocketed following two cash rate cuts last year and relaxed lending policies from banks.

The low supply, high demand environment was a particularly heavy blow for auction buyers – upward of 40 bidders have been registering for some Sydney auctions this year, resulting in record prices. But housing experts said the bumper prices were emboldening owners to finally list, which would take pressure off of buyers – many of who have been searching for a home since last year.
