"off the plan purchases for villas and units have been steady in recent months with three developments of 10 to 20 townhouses each in progress within Brown Hill, Ballarat East and Sebastopol. The villa market has shown approximately a 5% to 10% increase in value over the past five years in the sub prime locations.
