Regent St, Elsternwick: 12,802 views per listing
Being home to The Block 2017 ensured this Elsternwick street racked up views on realestate.com.au in recent years. Contestants Sticks and Wombat’s creation at 46B Regent St resold in 2018 for $2.83 million, after passing in at auction at $2.66 million. The property’s position near top schools including Caulfield Grammar was a major drawcard for the buyers, a young family from Melbourne’s southeast, The Agency selling agent Michael Paproth said at the time. Realestate.com.au said there were 40 listings on the street in the past three years.
