Houses are in low supply

Postcode: 3029

Median house price: $490,000

Stock on market: -27.0%

12-month growth: 19.5%

A rural-urban suburb that is seeing remarkable growth, Truganina is fast becoming popular among buyers.

The number of houses in the area fell by over 100 in the 12 months leading up to November 2017. This has been accompanied by a drop in vacancy rate from 2.3% to 1.9%, indicating that the fall in supply has heightened competition for vacant homes. On the flip side, however, the number of units went up from just 5 in 2016 to 16 in 2017.

A factor in Truganina’s popularity could be because of its affordability – the median house value is under $500,000, and the suburb recorded a 19.5% boost in prices over this period. Another contributor is Truganina being well-stocked in amenities and being a transport hub.
