Area information

 

Homebuyers

Are you looking to buy in Australia’s most liveable city? Melbourne boasts a vast range of stylish and sophisticated real estate options, from family-friendly homes to luxury inner-city apartments and sprawling mansions. Our Buyers’ Agents in Melbourne will help you uncover the best properties in the suburbs that best fit your family’s budget and personal preferences.

Property Investors

Melbourne’s real estate market has excellent potential for long-term capital growth. Our buyers’ agents will tell you where to invest in property in Melbourne and pin-point the best suburbs for potential growth, including inner-city and outer-suburban options. Should you prefer to explore Melbourne’s commercial property investment market, you’ll find our buyers’ advocates are equally knowledgeable about all of the industrial real estate opportunities available.

 

The Melbourne Property Market

Melbourne’s property market has proven to be more resilient than many other cities, with the most recent example being its bounce back from the dip during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, when strict lockdown restrictions virtually froze all activity. Now, want-to-be homeowners and investors are once again buying property in Melbourne, with major growth occurring in the sub-regions and north-eastern suburbs.

Family homes, in particular, are in high-demand as people reassess their needs; for instance, they’re now looking for office space to work comfortably from home and bigger gardens in which children can amuse themselves for hours on end. Many buyers that have missed out in Melbourne property auctions are now considering suburbs a little further out in Doncaster, Blackburn, Donvale and Ringwood where there are large size blocks ripe for renovation or rebuilding.

Some of the most promising areas of property investment in Melbourne are in high-end suburbs, where prestige property offers outstanding capital growth. High growth areas include St. Kilda West, Portsea, Kingsville, and St. Andrews Beach. Growth here is at the 1000% mark. The best way to capitalise on these investment opportunities is to consult a buyers’ agent who specialises in luxury real estate in Melbourne.

First-time buyers looking for an entry level home should cast their eye on property within 10km – 20km from the CBD, especially in the northern and western suburbs. Maidstone, Footscray, and Preston are all good investments and they’re all at the 10km radius mark.

Those looking for affordable apartments should look at Maidstone and Footscray. Families wanting to move to these areas are best advised to consult a buyers’ agent in Melbourne to help them find properties close to parks, schools, and transport links.

If you want neither an entry-level home nor prestige property, buyers’ advocates in Melbourne can show you suburbs that have been highly rated for lifestyle, safety, and entertainment opportunities. Some of these include South Yarra (cafes, shopping, nightlife and public transport); Carlton (restaurants and well-established café culture, museums, proximity to the CBD); East Melbourne (cafes, public gardens, and transport links).

It’s notable that while proximity to parks, schools and transport links have always attracted buyers, a new priority has entered the scene: Proximity to cafes or coffee shops. There is a new appreciation for relaxed social gatherings where people can drink in their quiet neighbourhoods, while also drinking their favourite beverages.

For buyers seeking an affordable lifestyle change should consider the Bayside areas of Melbourne including Beaumaris, Mordialloc, Carrum Downs, Aspendale, Seaford, Parkdale and Cheltenham. These areas have become very popular and all have school zones and great public transport that home buyers and property investors are drawn to.

 
 

Location and Transport Links in Melbourne

Melbourne has a well-established public transport system that enables you to get from the suburbs to the city, and around the city, easily and cheaply.

Once you get a Myki smartcard you can travel on Melbourne’s trams, trains, and buses. You can top up your Myki card online. You can download maps and timetables so that you can plan your trip down to the minute. There is a Myki app available for Android phones.

Melbourne’s Night Network provides 24-hour transport on weekends so you don’t have to cut your night out short to make the bus. You can catch the Night Bus from six locations in the inner-city and you won’t even have to wait long because a bus departs every 30 minutes.

Free Tram Zone is most often used by residents to get from one area in the city to another. City Circle Tram is free to passengers who want to get around the city’s major attractions. It’s popular among residents and tourists.

If you prefer getting around by car, you can catch a taxi at various locations, which you will find on your map. You can also car share, if you so choose.

Buses and trains are available for city, regional and interstate travel.

 

Recreation and Other Amenities in Melbourne

Melbourne’s climate tends to be subtropical, which is great for outdoor activities. It’s also quite windy, which is great for surfers. For those who don’t surf, there are plenty of indoor entertainment options to enjoy.

The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) features contemporary art by international and local artists. ACCA hosts several talks, lectures, performances, and events throughout the year. Entry is free.

The Australian Music Vault is a free exhibition for music lovers. It includes interactive experiences, recordings of interviews with musicians and other industry professionals, and even an exhibition of costumes international stars have worn at iconic concerts. Entry is free.

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Gardens has treats for all tastes, including lakes for picnics and punting, plant collections for gardening buffs, guided walks, the Aboriginal Heritage Walk, cafes, and a children’s garden. Entry is free. The Botanic Garden is only one of many gardens in Melbourne. A city guide can show you where to find them all.

Kids will enjoy the Interaxcity Children’s Museum where their imaginations can run free and their curiosity can be satisfied. Kids can be chefs, pilots, car mechanics, and a range of other professions. They can learn through interactive exhibits and play. It’s best for kindergarten-age children. It’s incredibly popular so you have to book your spot. It costs AUD$18 to get in, which includes one adult and one child.

Cycling is a popular activity; in fact, many people cycle as their chosen means of transport. Cyclists make use of the city’s cycling network, which has over 135km of on and off-road routes.

Of course, there are the beaches. The sea is not as warm here as it is along more northern cities on the coast, but the beaches are great for picnics, people-watching, building sand castles, and all forms of surfing, including kitesurfing and windsurfing.
