Geelong, VIC House & Land


Location Overview

Geelong, situated on Port Phillip Bay 75kms South-West of Melbourne, has long been known as a working class manufacturing city. But this image is transforming into a dynamic city with great lifestyle, thanks to economic diversification, affordability and the old real estate mantra, location, location, location.

Geelong is Victoria's second largest city with a population of approx 235,000 and is set to grow by 36.5% to over 320,000 in under 20 years and more than double in size to over 500,000 by 2050.

With Melbourne growing at an astonishing 125,000 people in 2016, its boundaries are exploding. To put that growth into perspective, at that rate, it will grow by a city the size of Adelaide in only 8 years. That is insatiable demand for new housing. The Victorian government understands the need to direct some of this massive growth to its second largest city Geelong. They have just doubled the FHOG to encourage buyers to relocate to Geelong.

A brand new city is also being built half way between Melbourne and Geelong called the Werribee East Employment zone. This state-of-the-art city will create approx 60,000 new jobs in the region.

Past and present Victorian government's, support Geelong's expansion through infrastructure spending and relocation of government agencies to Geelong. Funding has been provided to the health, education, agriculture and tourism industries providing thousands of more new jobs.

If you are looking for the right location to invest, Geelong represents all of the fundamentals for successful property investment. Population growth, jobs growth, infrastructure spending, affordability, low vacancy, and location, location, location!!
