Through 2016 there was substantial growth in property prices throughout Melbourne’s south eastern corridor and the trend is expected to continue into 2017, according to HTW's February 2017 update.

The valuation firm says that suburbs such as Seaford and Carrum saw median house prices grow 5.8% and 8.3% respectively in 2016, with Seaford’s median house price increasing an impressive 17.2% in the September 2016 quarter alone.

The area is popular with younger families and retired couples especially, due to its close proximity to the Frankston rail line, Frankston Freeway and Peninsula Link whilst also being well serviced with local amenities, shopping precincts, schools and beaches.

With the appeal of the region anticipated to continue, it is expected that property prices will also continue to rise well into 2017.

The adjoining suburb of Frankston North is also expected to continue its momentum into 2017.

The suburb was originally one of the largest housing commission precincts in Australia and many of the original brick veneer dwellings still exist.

Low median house prices and larger land sizes have made this area popular with first home buyers and even investors looking to demolish and subdivide, the report says.

"Whilst the suburb has struggled to shake its stigma as being a rough area, its popularity is certainly on the rise.

"Median house prices grew 8.8% in the September 2016 quarter and although the growth in Frankston North isn’t as substantial when compared to its neighbouring suburbs, it has been steady in the past and is expected to continue into 2017."

For $345,000 an investor can buy a house such as the one at 23 Hickory Crescent, Frankston North (above) that is available from over $369,999.

Similarly a three bedroom unit at 1/9 Windoo Street, Frankston North (below) was sold for $346,780.
