The large suburb of Deer Park benefits from an excellent location just 17km west of the Melbourne CBD. Specifically, the unit market has been seeing significant, steady growth over the past five years and shows no signs of slowing down.

The suburb got its name after the Melbourne Hunt Club once housed its game deer here. The Club’s home has since been converted into a community centre next to a sports oval. Several schools have also been established in the suburb, including primary schools and a secondary college. Travel is convenient via train and bus, and Ballarat Road passes through the suburb. 

Large blocks of farm property on the fringes of Deer Park are also being developed for housing. Thus, now is a good time to enter the market while apartment prices are still reasonable and the average rental yield is strong at almost 5%.
