Wallan: Australia’s top growing town

Newbridge Estate in Wallan isn’t just an amazing place to live. It’s surrounded by some of the fastest growing property prices in Australia.

At Tick Homes, we think one of the best things about owning your own pad is that fact that it’s an investment in your future. And in Newbridge Estate – an exciting community built by Resimax – it’s easy to see why.

Topping the charts

The value of houses in the town of Wallan isn’t just rising – it’s shooting sky-high. Research from property data firm Corelogic has found that Wallan has the fastest growing property prices of any suburb in Australia.

Over the last year, the median value of properties in Wallan has grown by 46.8%. Pretty impressive, right? Imagine the value of your investment increasing by nearly half in just twelve months. Right now, in Wallan, houses are appreciating in value by the day. In 2013, Wallan’s median house price was $198,700. Five years on, this has skyrocketed to an extraordinary $533,062.

Why rent?

Not only is Wallan a no-brainer from an investment perspective, it’s a great place to lay down roots.

If you’re thinking of breaking out of the rental trap, it could be worth making a tree change and investing in a home in rural Victoria. “On top of all the other perks Wallan has to offer, the regional first home owner’s grant is doubled to $20k for first homebuyers. So there really isn’t a better time to break into the market” says Darren Mehl, Tick Homes COO. Get in touch with Tick Homes to find out more.

Your new bridge from the bustle to the bush

45km north of Melbourne’s CBD, Wallan is the perfect combination of rural charm and urban perks. Wallan is home to just over 11,000 people, and has the close-knit community vibe of a small country town. You’ll love its vibrant wildlife, bright open skies and the sight of the majestic Great Dividing Range.

it also sits on a train line and is only 40 minutes commute from city. This means you don’t need to choose between nature and nightlife – at Wallan you can have your cake and eat it too.
