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.

Q2 2018 Key Market Indicators – Queensland

Queensland achieved 5 bronze awards nationally in the Q2 2018 PRDnationwide Key Market Data Indicator Awards. QLD has traditionally been known as the more affordable Australian state in terms of property prices, however over the past 3 quarters there has been a definite shift in affordability. QLD recorded a home loan affordability index reading of 36.3 points in the December quarter of 2017, which although is still higher than the Australian average of 31.6 index points, puts QLD in the top 3 unaffordable states. This places it right behind VIC (29.9 index points) and NSW (26.5 index points).

Victoria has emerged as the state with the highest number of first home buyer loans for September quarter 2017, at 8,786 loans. This is higher than New South Wales (6,775 loans) and Queensland (6,271 loans), which suggests effective first home buyer related policies are in place. Although not the most improved, Victoria has reported a 33.0% improvement over the past 12 months. This is encouraging for first home buyers as there has been concerns of increasing unaffordability, especially in Melbourne.
