Hi There are separate threads for Geelong and Ballarat but none for Bendigo, the other big regional towns in Victoria. My agent friends there told me that the level of buying activities in Bendigo has increased since early this year and it seems to be getting better. Prices of well located houses, esp walking distance to the CBD and the hospital have gone up. Could it be the effect of the new hospital which is due for completion soon? On the other hand, house prices in the "lousier" suburbs like Long Gully, Eaglehawk and California Gully seems very much suppressed. And that itself might spell opportunity for certain buyers as many houses here still have large plots of subdivable lands, plus they are actually not too far from the New Hospital. As such, buying undervalued houses here could mean good growth for the astute buyer. Not sure how true that is? Where would you buy in Bendigo? How's everyone experience or sentiments regarding this regional town? It has been pretty bad in property investment here for the last 3 years at least. But like Ballarat and Geelong, Bendigo has all the ingredients to boom again, just not sure why that didn't really happen..
