Glen Waverley was the only suburb to notch more than 200 seven figure house sales across the city last year, with 218, while neighbouring Mt Waverley managed 196.

The east dominated the list, with Templestowe, 182, Bentleigh East, 167, and Doncaster East, 157, rounding out the top five.

But Harcourts, Judd White, director Dexter Prack said there were lower stock levels in Glen Waverley and Mt Waverley when compared to the postcodes’ huge prior year.

“For us as an agency, we definitely noticed across the board a 10 per cent drop in stock levels and there was a slight correction in the prices,” he said.

“But what we noticed over the last six months was due to the lack of stock, the demand was quite similar which actually held prices in good stead.”
