Our Backyard

The opening of the Geelong Ring Road and ongoing interest from Melbourne buyers looking for a more laid-back coastal alternative than the busier Surf Coast towns of Lorne and Anglesea has continued to fuel demand in Aireys Inlet.

Median house prices in Aireys Inlet – which backs onto the Great Otway National Park – have climbed 41.1 per cent to a median price of $670,000 between March 2009 and March 2010, according to Land Victoria figures.

James Worssam, director at Great Ocean Road Real Estate, says that, while the values felt the impact of the financial crisis, the market turned early last year and has been strong since, with prices helped by limited stock. “They’ve capped the town boundaries – we’ve got the ocean on one side and national park on the other side – so we’re limited to where we can go, and it just keeps pushing up the price of what’s here”.

The entry level house price is now about $500,000, with demand greatest for properties on streets on the ocean side of the Great Ocean Road, or those with sea views.

Median house price figures were collated from Land Victoria data, March 2009 to March 2010. The data examined included prices for 64 coastal towns but the highest growth areas were selected from those with a minimum of 20 sales during the period.(Source Domain Spring Property Review, The Age)
