    Australian property is one of the safest forms of investment in the world. Australia's property market has a proven record of stable prices. The 2007/09 Global Financial Crisis which saw property prices in the UK and USA fall significantly, Australian property prices actually increased in value.

    In Melbourne, statistics show that over the last 30 years, property prices have grown an average of 7% per year. Property values have only declined in six out of those thirty years. That means that four in every five years, property prices are growing. That level of long-term stability and consistency is unrivaled in other investment asset classes.


    With Victoria’s population is growing at more than 100,000 people a year, we need more houses being built to keep up.

    Housing approvals are currently running at record levels and this strategy aims to keep them at an average of more than 50,000 new homes a year.


    new homes over the next 10 years.


    population growth in 2017
    • Rapid population growth

      Melbourne is currently leading Australia's population growth adding more than 100,000 people between 2016 and 2017 alone.

    • 347,400 new jobs since 2014

      Victoria is leading the nation when it comes to job creation. Over the year, Victoria’s employment rose by 72 000 persons or 2.2 per cent. Since 2014 the government has created 347,400 jobs, with more than 211,000 of them full time.

    • Australia's biggest university city

      The city is home to 8 universities that teach close to 300,000 students, with more than a third from abroad. This makes Melbourne comfortably Australia’s biggest university city and one of the biggest study abroad destinations globally.

    Victoria is the fastest growing state in the nation. In
    fact, we’re growing at a pace barely seen since the
    gold rush. That growth has created opportunities and
    contributed to our economic success.

    We’re undertaking the largest infrastructure
    investment in our state’s history.
    We’re building new rail lines to connect our suburbs and towns.

    All up, this pipeline is worth over $80 billion, and is providing
    work for 75,000 Victorians.

    • Metro Tunnel

      The Metro Tunnel will free up space in the City Loop to run more trains, more often across Melbourne. It will change Melbourne forever with a world class design that will see new open space, terraced seating and sweeping arches. Major work is underway on the $11 billion Metro Tunnel, which is Australia's biggest public transport project. Metro Tunnel will boost our rail network’s peak capacity by 39,000 in each two hour peak period, from its first day of operation.

    • Airport Rail Link

      Connecting Melbourne Airport to all metropolitan and regional rail lines. It is expected the full Business Case will be completed in 2019/20. Construction is set to begin by the end of 2022.

    Melbourne's rental vacancy rate hits new low as population booms

    The latest figures from the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) show the vacancy rate dropped to just 1.8 per cent in July. That's the lowest it has been in the 16 years. Vacancy rates in Melbourne's outer suburbs were also below the state rate, sitting at 1.6 per cent.

    Population increases well above the national average are expected to continue for many years, creating strong ongoing demand for rental properties. Melbourne is now Australia’s fastest growing city and expected to overtake Sydney as the country’s largest by 2026.

    • Stability

      Proven record of stable prices & consistent under supply of housing in most capital cities. Australia has a firm responsible lending legislation and prudent economic management (APRA), reducing the risk of asset price bubbles.

      Overseas property markets such as Hong Kong or the United States have suffered significant crashes that are completely unheard of in Australia.

      Over the next 50 years, it’s expected that the trend of migration to Australia will continue and property prices will rise as a result.

    • It's easy to invest in Australia

      Many countries have very restrictive foreign investment laws or banking regulations that make it difficult to invest. This isn't the case in Australia.

      You don't need to setup a company in Australia or buy with a citizen. Government approval for foreign citizens is simple although additional taxes apply.

      Australia's legal system is based on the UK system just like Hong Kong or Singapore so its familiar to many overseas investors. There's minimal political, social or economic instability in Australia.

    • Consistent growth performance

      Australian properties have enjoyed consistent capital growth over the last 100 years, with property prices doubling roughly every 7 to 10 years.

      One of the reasons behind the growth is Australia's chronic housing shortage in many of our major cities. 

      The population is growing at a rate much faster than dwellings are being constructed. The primary reason for this is a consistent high level of immigration and strong employment demand. Prices have largely risen in line with the market’s ability to pay for housing.

    • Great place to live

      Melbourne ranked as the world's most livable cities for seven years in a row, from 2011 until 2017 taking out 2nd place in 2018 after Vienna. Australia is well known for its diverse international cities and breathtaking natural beauty.  

      Queensland (QLD) is famous for its wonderful beaches and reefs.
      Victoria (VIC) has a stunning coastline stretching to South Australia (SA).
      The Northern Territory (NT) is renowned for its distinctive outback experience.
      New South Wales (NSW) for the tranquil Blue Mountains, beautiful coast, strong economy and Sydney. 

      Many Australian universities are making a name for themselves overseas.
