Melbourne - Affordable & Liveable Property Guide 1st Half 2018

The Melbourne City Local Government Area median house prices experienced a 1.3% growth and unit median prices grew by 7.9% from 2016 to 2017/2018*. The majority (79.5%) of suburbs in greater Melbourne experienced double digit price growth, whereas 16.8% experienced single digit growth and only 3.7% had negative growth. This points to the wide scale decline in affordability across greater Melbourne. Property buyers will be pleased by the existence of affordable options in the midst of continued price growth, across suburbs in the north-west for houses and south for units. At the same time, rental prices in the LGA have trended upwards for houses whilst remaining stable for units. Table 1. Melbourne’s top performing suburbs in the 1st half of 2018

Q2 2018 Key Market Indicators – Victoria

It was a clean sweep for Victoria, taking out 4 gold awards nationally, 2 silver and 1 bronze in the PRDnationwide Q2 2018 Key Market Indicator Awards. Property prices in Melbourne have increased exponentially over the past 12 months, as investment interests shifted from Sydney’s unaffordable landscape. It is no surprise that VIC’s home loan affordability index has decreased by -0.7% over the past 12 months to the December quarter of 2017, which is in contrast to Australia’s positive growth of 0.3%. VIC’s home loan affordability was 29.9 index points in the December quarter of 2017, which is still slightly higher than NSW’s 26.5 index points.
