SEPTEMBER QUARTER 2021- MEDIAN PRICES

The latest data released by the Real Estate Industry of Victoria (REIV) for the quarter ending in September 2021 shows increased confidence and sustained overall growth.

On Thursday 5th August, Victoria’s Lockdown 6.0 saw the property market virtually placed on hold for 6 weeks as physical property inspections and auctions were banned once again. Many campaigns were placed on hold, whilst others continued to sell during lockdown (some properties were even sight unseen).

Physical property inspections were permitted to commence again from Saturday 18th September, half-way through the quarter, and came as a very welcome announcement. Forecasters are still predicting rising house prices during the next quarter as vendors and buyers work to make up lost time.

These results are a far cry from what most property experts and analysts predicted earlier last year. Some major organisations even predicted property prices to plunge by 40%. Once again, the Melbourne property market has remained very strong, and desirable by many.
