Mildura in Victoria was at the start of the recovery period in Herron Todd White's latest property clock, a simple broad brush means to indicate where property prices are, and where they are going.

Victoria's Mildura is for the budget-conscious buyer: HTW

While many of the dwellings constructed in Mildura’s early days were of a fairly basic standard, many have survived and continue to receive good buyer demand. These older dwellings are located within easy walking distance of Mildura’s town centre, dining and nightlife precinct and therefore appeal to both young professionals and older downsizers.

The better standard homes in Mildura are traditionally located west of Deakin Avenue, with the older character homes always well sought after.

Demand remains strong, particularly for properties with good street appeal. Values in these areas vary depending on the size of the land and residence and standard of external features, however, they typically range between $300,000 and $500,000, with some unrenovated dwellings fetching lower prices.

In the past few years there has been improving demand for homes in some inner areas on the eastern side of Deakin Avenue, in those locations within one kilometre of the town centre.

Homes in these areas are typically smaller and more affordable. Recent sales in these areas have generally been in the range of $180,000 to $280,000, with the cheaper end of this range being for dwellings that require renovation.

To illustrate this affordability, Property Observer came across a two-bedroom bungalow at 109 Olive Avenue, Mildura (above) for $287,500 on realestate.com.au

There has been a gradual trend for the more basic dwellings in these areas to be either demolished or renovated, which has contributed to an improved profile.

HTW expects these areas to continue to receive good demand from budget-conscious buyers who seek the convenience of living close to the town centre and are prepared to undertake some renovation work.
