As lifestyle driven coastal markets fared worse than any other markets over the year, conditions are now improving, and now is by far the best time for positioning in the market while prices remain lower. With the turnaround coming from a low base, however, and most coastal lifestyle markets similar to Apollo Bay still providing a wide range of opportunities, generally prices are still lower than last year. Despite the strong jump in market activity, monthly sales in the shire are below 10 year averages, suggesting competition in the market is far from fierce.

However, our Vendors and Agency have defied the above trend recording some recent record sale prices for specific areas:
• Cawood Street – Sold for close to $800,000
• Heathfield Estate – Sold for $800,000 plus
• And strong median price sales in the last few weeks
We look forward to this continued confidence in the market with the market realising the exceptional value.

Once again, reinforcing the point of difference our Agency offers, and representing the maximum the market will offer to every seller with capability to be responsive to all buyer activity whether via internet, print media, radio, TV or our four strategically placed offices.

Also, I am proud to announce a couple of very exciting new listings:

A. “Truffle Farm” at 415 Sunnyside Road, Wongarra. Imagine owning your own truffiere (as featured on TV) situated just off the Great Ocean Road between Lorne & Apollo Bay. This beautiful 88-acre property boasting outstanding coastal views has so many amazing features that it makes it one of Victoria’s most unique & special farms. The magnificent 3 B/R dbl storey cedar residence is set amongst attractive gardens with a separate S/C cottage adjacent to the house which is ideal for guest accommodation. The truffiere includes approx. 200 oak trees which have now produced three valuable crops of Perigord Black Truffles. These truffles are revered for amazing quality & flavour and are in great demand by chefs throughout Australia.

B. “Salt Water” apartments at 15 Cawood Street, Apollo Bay, sensationally located within 200m to the beach. These brand new townhouses, with a spacious, eco-friendly 2-storey design and 5-star energy efficiency rating, are Apollo Bay’s newest luxury townhouse development. Great Ocean Road Real Estate are proud to announce their official release on the Melbourne Cup long weekend and would like to invite you to a champagne Open for Inspection on Saturday 31st October from 4:00-6:00pm.
