Bendigo is one of Victoria's regional powerhouses, and its property market is backed by a diverse economy.Full summary

Bendigo is one of Victoria's regional powerhouses, and its property market is backed by a diverse economy.

“Located approximately 130km north of Melbourne’s CBD, Bendigo exists as one of Victoria’s key rural hubs. The area has a diverse and robust economy that comprises mining, agriculture, manufacturing, tourism, health, and a strong financial presence, with Australia’s only provincial stock exchange,” explains PRDnationwide’s Dan O’Halloran.

“The Bendigo real estate market is large enough to maintain a reasonable level of supply and demand throughout tough economic conditions, which makes it an attractive and secure investment option.”

He adds that Bendigo’s relative affordability compared to Melbourne, coupled with a strong community vibe assists to attract many new homeowners to the area each year. Rental yields are strong too, which will be of interest to investors.

Its demographics certainly look strong, with population growth averaging out at just under 2% per year over four years, according to ABS statistics. Renters make up around a third of the market.
