First home buyers that have been priced out of East Geelong, where you are looking at spending at least $400,000 plus, are coming to Newcomb in big ways says local real estate agent Donna Ellmer-Buckingham Full summary

Newcomb sits just 3 km from downtown Geelong and next door to much pricier East Geelong, which has pockets of $700,000 homes.

First home buyers that have been priced out of East Geelong, where you are looking at spending at least $400,000 plus, are coming in big says local real estate agent Donna Ellmer-Buckingham. “So you know it’s definitely a good alternative.”

While Newcomb went flat over 2011, much of Melbourne went deep into negative territory over fears that the market had overheated. Those fears seem to have steered clear of Newcomb which grew 42% over the past 5 years, well below the average annual growth it recorded over the past 10 years and nowhere near the numbers posted in many of Melbourne’s comparable suburbs.

Location is the big draw in Newcomb as a typical ride to the city on public transport will take you just 5 minutes, yet residents also have access to the parks, farmland and open spaces to the east of the city. 

Best Street(s): Poplar St: A long block of older, well established homes tuck in a residential quieter residential area, but still featuring great access to Geelong and beaches to the south.
