Dear Fellow Property Investor,

The Melbourne real estate market is buzzing with potential at the start of 2024, offering a plethora of opportunities for savvy investors and homebuyers alike. So, what suburbs will boom in Melbourne this year?

A handful of Melbourne suburbs recorded double-digit property price increases over 2023, bucking the city’s wider trend of modest growth.

Melbourne’s median house price median rose 2 per cent to $1,047,000 over the 12 months to December, and its unit price grew 4 per cent to almost $580,000 in the same period, the latest Domain House Price Report showed.

With an eye on the future, identifying suburbs with the promise of growth, affordability, and lifestyle appeal becomes crucial.

We will look into the top 10 Melbourne suburbs set to boom in 2024, alongside other noteworthy areas that promise unique opportunities.

Who will be my No #1 Best Melbourne cheapie suburb with the best capital growth potential in 2024?

Dear Fellow Property Investor,

A new report is forecasting Melbourne’s median house price will surge more than $110,000 to an almost $1.16 m record high in the next 18 months – the equivalent of $200 a day.

Oxford Economics Australia forecasts that the price recovery will drive Melbourne’s median $1.04 million median house to jump 110,000, or 5.5%, close to $1.157 million by mid-2026, driven by an expected resurgence in migration from both interstate and overseas.

And it’s not just house prices, unit prices will also reach a new record.

According to the report, Melbourne’s median unit is also anticipated to increase 6.5% to an all-time $726,900 high.

Let me ask you something…

Do you have a game plan for 2024? 

Or will you watch savvy, educated, market-ready investors snap up all the bargains at the bottom of the Melbourne property cycle (which in my opinion by the way has already bottomed out in November 2022), 

Or will you join them? 

So, what are you waiting for?

Dear Fellow Property Investors,

Australia is facing two more years of house price growth, with two standout markets expected to jump the most, according to a bank expert.

Melbourne and Perth will clock the greatest increases in house prices this year, Bank of Queensland chief economist Peter Munckton found in his new year outlook report.

Depleted listings and few options for buyers will cap how far prices can decline, Munckton wrote in the BOQ's Housing Market Update.

Prices will go up this year but not by the margins seen in 2023, he predicts.

Munckton is not expecting interest rate cuts until the end of the year. Earlier rate reductions would result in more "aggressive" house price growth, he said.

Price rises will likely continue with gusto in 2025.

"Average house price growth Australia-wide is likely to be lower in 2024 than it was in 2023," he said in the report.

"The lack of new supply puts a floor as to how far house price growth can slow (at least without substantial changes in interest rates or the unemployment rate).

"Stronger house price growth is likely in 2025 as interest rates are reduced and the economic outlook improves."

Domain's latest House Price Report (December 2023), released in January, found record median prices were struck across several capital cities. It has never been more expensive to buy a house or unit in Australia.

At $1,094,539 for houses (up 2.1 per cent over the quarter, or 7.8 per cent over a year) and $638,372 for units (up 2.3 per cent over the quarter and 6.8 per cent over 12 months), the fresh levels inflict further challenges on those striving to get a foot in the market, but reflect capital gains and increased equity for those with mortgages.

Munckton said the bounce of prices in 2023 was a "surprise" to most analysts.

He said the "biggest rise" in standalone house prices in 2024 will be in Melbourne and Perth - markets which he regards as "best value" when comparing rental yield with the level of long-term interest rates.

"Melbourne price performance last year was modest by capital city standards," he wrote.

Dear Fellow Property Investors,

A handful of Melbourne suburbs recorded double-digit property price increases over 2023, bucking the city’s wider trend of modest growth.

Melbourne’s median house price median rose 2 per cent to $1,047,000 over the 12 months to December, and its unit price grew 4 per cent to almost $580,000 in the same period, the latest Domain House Price Report showed.

In the ever-popular inner north suburb of Fitzroy, however, house prices increased 16.4 per cent to a median $1.63 million last year. Unit prices in neighbouring Fitzroy North also shot up over the year, up 12.5 per cent to nearly $617,000.

Burwood (up 11.9 per cent to $1,411,000) and Maribyrnong (up 11.9 per cent to $1,031,000) had the next highest house price growth, and Notting Hill (10.8 per cent to $385,000) and Bayswater (10.5 per cent to almost $608,000) were the closest for units.

Domain chief of research and economics Dr Nicola Powell said the growth was out of character for Melbourne. “There are a handful of suburbs that have seen double-digit increases and declines, but the bulk of suburbs haven’t seen a lot of movement in the past 12 months,” she said.

Powell said Fitzroy and Fitzroy North had over-performed particularly when compared against blue-chip suburbs which typically lead market movements.

Nelson Alexander agent Jonathan West said sought-after suburbs tended to help boost prices of their neighbours, particularly if they held high-quality homes. Brunswick East, for example, recorded house price growth of 4.3 per cent over 2023 to a median of $1,249,000.

“It’s the connection suburb to Fitzroy North and Carlton North,” West said. “They will start coming out of Carlton North and Fitzroy North and look in Brunswick East to see what’s around, then they’ll hop to Brunswick and Brunswick West if there’s nothing there.”

Brunswick West had less spillover effect, however. House prices there fell 19.8 per cent to $923,000 over the year.

West said the Brunswick West neighbourhood included homes which needed more work, and didn’t attract the same premiums as turnkey properties.

“Brunswick East is more expensive, there’s no doubt about it. With Brunswick West, you get bigger blocks and wider streets,” he said. [The median price] is based on those older style double-fronts that need a lot of work.”

Prices fell the furthest in the unit markets of Clayton South (down 23.2 per cent to $460,000) and St Kilda West (down 20.7 per cent to $486,000), and for houses the biggest drops were in Elwood (down 19.8 per cent to $2,085,000), Brunswick West and Alphington (19.4 per cent to $1.55 million).

Westpac senior economist Jarek Kowcza said the demand for renovated homes was a common trend because of Australia’s high inflation, particularly in the construction sector.

“Properties that are ready for people to move into are really popular,” he said. “The cost of building a new home has been one of the main contributors to inflation.

“So that’s meant the cost of renovating the home has really increased. The availability of staff and materials are also a factor.”
