A FAST rail line could make Bendigo's property market prices soar according to a real estate agent for the city.
McKean McGregor licensed estate agent Jayden Dondalson said all the indicators were that Bendigo's property market would continue to thrive over the coming decade.
Mr Donaldson said Bendigo's market generally remained fairly steady.
He said people could expect to see a steady increase in prices - without the extreme peaks and troughs metropolitan markets were prone to - if the last 10 years were an indicator.
But housing supply, and the economy would play a part, he said.
Mr Donaldson said factors outside residents' control would dictate the Bendigo property market.
For instance, Mr Donaldson said a fast rail connection to Melbourne could single-handedly cause huge growth in the Bendigo property market, if a link was developed.
The government has named Geelong and Ballarat as priorities for planning fast rail, but has not announced any plans for Bendigo.
Mr Donaldson said prices could also increase in 10-15 years if more people were priced out of the Melbourne market.
Mr Donaldson said investment was thriving in Bendigo, with positive national media about the market as a hotspot showing sturdy and predictable growth.
