Our Backyard

Good afternoon Apollo Bay,

What a whirl wind last couple of weeks we have had here on the Coast, as restrictions eased it was magic to see the town come back to life and have so many holiday makers re-visit and enjoy our stunning region for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. 

In property news, the market has remained reasonably strong despite the COVID-19 pandemic, with enquiry levels dramatically increasing in the past month, with a total of 16 property transactions across the township since March 1st 2020, and a further 6 properties having gone Under Contract through our agency in the past week, a great sign for our region. 

The median house price has also remained steady through the pandemic with the Apollo Bay townships median currently at $650,000, up from $612,500 in December 2019 in accordance with reports by realestate.com.au.

As we adjust to the ever changing world around us as a result of recent times, it is clear that the recent lock down period has allowed prospective purchasers considering a coastal or rural purchase a great chance to assess their property needs and really consider their options when it comes to relocating or partially relocating, particularly as many employees and employers alike have positively adjusted to what may be the new ‘norm’ for many, embracing the ‘Working From Home Lifestyle’ which in many cases has allowed a greater flexibility for those wishing to transition to a coastal lifestyle, be it on a permanent or semi permanent basis. 

We are open for business and we can’t wait to welcome you and help you find your perfect place in Our Backyard!
