Woodlea has topped the charts as Australia’s fastest-selling estate for the last quarter.
The news follows on the heels of the Rockbank estate’s crowning as the state’s fastest-selling community in the September quarter last year as well.
The findings come from research undertaken by property consulting firm Charter Keck Cramer for the National Land Survey Program.
Woodlea project director Matthew Dean said families were flocking to the western suburbs, as infrastructure and amenities are increasingly improved.
The proximity of the estate to Melbourne’s CBD – less than 30 kilometres – and the Rockbank train station, make it an ideal location for families, Mr Dean said.
“To be witnessing these sorts of sales figures, month after month, reinforces that customers are attracted to the diverse housing options and block sizes available for them to build their dream home,” Mr Dean said.
“We really are going above and beyond to deliver the highest quality amenities for families, including a choice of private and public schools.”
Charter Keck Cramer national executive director Robert Papaleo said Melbourne’s west was smashing records, with an average of 549 sales per month in the December quarter, up from 463 the previous quarter.
