Australians are becoming wealthier – and it’s thanks to property
Wealth per capita is now sitting at a record high of $522,032, thanks to record-high property prices. ...
Houses in Melbourne can still be purchased for less than $220,000 in the city’s west, according to new figures from REIV.
The data analysed the lower quartile price, meaning the 25 per cent mark, in each suburb.
Melton came close behind with a lower quartile of $220,000.
REIV CEO Enzo Raimondo said these areas offer larger blocks of land, good housing stock and transport links.
“These suburbs are proving increasingly popular with homebuyers who are looking for quality housing in line with their budget,” he said.
“For many who feel priced out closer to the city, these areas offer a host of lifestyle options.”
Overall, suburbs with affordable price points are seeing an uptick in activity, Mr Raimondo said.
“Melbourne’s housing market remains solid and buyers are now turning to those suburbs where their dollar goes further. With interest rates currently steady, more buyers may be tempted by the affordable property that is available,” he said.
