By Matt Hurlston

There's plenty to be optimistic about in the Victorian economy at the moment, as it's been crowned the fastest growing in the entire country. CommSec has released its latest State of the States Report, which has the potential to increase interest in real estate in Bentleigh.

Economic growth is now 3.4 per cent higher than a year ago, the state government announced, while strong results have also been delivered in relation to housing finance and population growth. Victoria also ranked in second place on the economic performance rankings.

Acting treasurer Gavin Jennings said: "Victoria now has the fastest annual economic growth rate in the nation, with confidence returning and almost 48,000 new full time jobs created since the Andrews Labor Government was elected."

Unemployment in the state has fallen to 5.9 per cent, showing there's no shortage of job opportunities in this particular part of the country.Many of the positions that have recently been created are full-time roles. 

Retail activity was also acknowledged by CommSec for its strength, which might partly be a result of the rising population experienced throughout the region.
