Lorne – Market Round Up
Last week I sent you a link to a video round up on the financial year performance of the Lorne property market and those that viewed it would be familiar with some of the statistics that I am looking to share. It was interesting to note that for the entire 12 month period there was not a single Lorne transaction in excess of $2 million and only 18 in total over a million dollars, 17 of which were completed by the Great Ocean Road Real Estate team.
The other notable statistic was the easing of Lorne’s average house price to sit just under $1 million, for the first time in the last five years. But what came as more of a surprise to me was that for the first time since records have been kept the median house price for a residence at Aireys Inlet (including Fairhaven, Moggs Creek and Eastern View) eclipsed that of Lorne!
Never has Lorne presented better value than what it does right now and for those that haven’t seen it, I attach a link of my video for you once more.

Lorne – Weekly Report
A big weekend on the coast, where in Lorne we have the fourth annual Amy’s Gran Fondo with approximately 5,000 cyclists taking to the road. The marquees and the event village have been under construction for the past days and everything is shaping up for this years event to be the best yet. With the addition of a team hill climb event up Bay Street on Saturday afternoon the town will be alive with the colour of lycra.
On the real estate front Spring has started to reveal the listing of some great new properties both formally on the market and a couple of great “off market” opportunities. One of Lorne’s arguably most exclusive and spectacular properties can currently be purchased and it offers everything and more in an exclusive residential dwelling. If you haven’t been contacted by one of our team give me a ring and I will give you the brief.
With two properties under contract over the past seven days buyers are following the sunshine and returning at a time when Lorne has never been better.
