Residential Prices

The Victorian property market is resilient and this is evident in the price performance over recent months. While the pandemic has impacted transaction volumes in Victoria, property prices have held steady. The September 2020 quarter median price for homes in metropolitan Melbourne remained steady and regional Victoria recorded new historical benchmark for its median house price. Details below.

Rental Market
