The northwest Melbourne suburb of Keilor seems to have become a popular destination for buyers over the past year, as its stock on market has fallen significantlyFull summary

The northwest Melbourne suburb of Keilor seems to have become a popular destination for buyers over the past year, as its stock on market has fallen significantly, by 29.5% compared to this time last year.

That increased interest from buyers might explain the stronger performance of house prices in the region.

Keilor is around 18km from the CBD, and the M79 offers easy access.

Those looking to buy in the suburb should also take into account that it neighbours Tullamarine Airport.

The current median house price sits at $680,000, having increased by 13% over the last year and 19% over the past three.

Rental returns aren’t performing outrageously well at the moment, with the average yield at just 3%.

However, the vacancy rate is only 0.6%, according to Real Estate Investar, so landlords are likely to have good luck in finding tenants.
