Anyone see that $930K or so auction in Sunshine? Very nice Weatherboard Façade house! Once off or knocking on the million dollar average door? Will growth shift to only the West? Will the gap finally close between the East and West? I have invested 1 house (Braybrook) in the West - whilst living in the East for most of my life...Braybrook has not seen astronomical growth as it really has no real town or station (unlike Sunshine, St. Albans etc.) My best guess? The West should rise to $700K averages, especially suburbs within 20kms as this is what Before this gets into a East vs West bashing thread, just my thoughts, I think it should be on par with South Eastern Suburbs like Clayton, Springvale, Mulgrave etc. so I think it should push to the $700K barrier average. I currently live in Ashwood (renting) and I can understand why it's just a little bit "finer" than most of the Western suburbs. Some of the reasons why: 1. Somewhat more lush green around here than the mostly flat West. 2. Better selection of private and public schools. 3. Better access to universities - Deakin Burwood, Monash Clayton, Swinburne Hawthorn are relatively close whilst Melbourne University and RMIT are in the CBD, so only slightly further out.
