Living in: Melbourne
The property market is steadily improving in Melbourne. “We’re certainly finding that there’s more buyer depth in the market, which we didn’t see a few months ago,” Kasper said. The cost of a two-bedroom apartment varies from suburb to suburb, but in North Melbourne they go for around $400,000 Australian dollars, in East St Kilda they cost roughly $450,000 Australian dollars and in Elwood expect to pay upwards of $500,000 Australian dollars. Townhouses and small homes in North Melbourne are between $600,000 and $800,000 Australian dollars, while in Ellwood they can reach $1 million.
Two-bed rentals in popular neighbourhoods range from $450 to $800 Australian dollars per week, while townhouses range from $600 to $1,000 per week.
