Why you should consider investing in Melbourne

Melbourne has captured the hearts of people around the world. It’s led the way with a sporting and festival culture, trendy cafés and great value property.

Investors around Australasia recognise the steady 20-year growth of
in comparison to Sydney.

They also leverage from the Australian’s love of real estate. Every major TV network across Australia has a real estate show. Aussies love to renovate property, build new houses and now, subdivide.

The Australian dream of owning your own home is still very much alive and creates a lot of interest around real estate. All this interest in
pushes prices upward, keeping growth strong and steady

Melbourne TownhousesThe Reserve Bank of Australia summarises the last 30 years of residential property in the following ways:

  • In the 1980s, “housing prices grew broadly in line with general price inflation in the economy.”
  • The 1990s until the mid 2000s saw “relatively strong housing price growth associated with a significant increase in the debt-to-income ratio of Australian households.”
  • Since the mid 2000s, “strong population growth has played an increasing role in explaining housing price growth.”

    While history shows Melbourne is a great state to buy in, as an investor, it all comes down to knowing how to buy the right property in growth suburbs.

    Hence, the rise of professional real estate buyers. Known as buyers agents, they are real estate agents that represent the best interest of their clients: property buyers.

    Once reserved only for the wealthy,
    for wannabe home owners to step onto the property ladder.

    Working in the real estate market on a daily basis, they are able to come across opportunities and identify value for their clients.

    – something that attracts tenants when leasing and buyers when re-selling.

    The Australian Bureau of Statistics has recorded Victoria as the fastest growing state in Australia, with 143,000 new residences in 2017 alone.

    The reason tenants love Melbourne is five-fold:

1. Metropolitan areas close to CBD

Metropolitan areas only sit as far out as 50km from the CBD. No matter which direction you travel, you’ll find freeways, highways and other major roads to create easy access to the city.

3. Government investment in major infrastructure

Billions of state and federal dollars are being invested into major infrastructure of roads and rail, creating many jobs in the process. This year, Melbourne began taking on some of the biggest road and rail projects in its history, with the Westgate Tunnel Project, North East Link Project, the Mordialloc Bypass, Whitten bridge upgrade and the Metro tunnel – adding to the city’s liveability and adding more jobs in the process.

4. A sport and leisure capital

Melbourne features some of the biggest sporting events in the world, from the Australian Open to the Melbourne Cup and Formula One and, as a result, drawing in thousands of local and international tourists.

5. The Paris end

Melbourne often gets compared to Paris, because, well, it feels like Paris! The inner suburbs share a café culture, creating a strong attraction for tenants.

I only have praise from my Uno experience! I was a broker sceptic, having done all of the hard work myself for my first two property purchases and sale. I'm now a proud broker advocate having used UNO (Karis Churchill) for two refinances and purchase. The value add Karis brought cannot be underrated! Not only has Karis got me the best rate, with a bonus cash back (nearly unheard of in this climate), she has done it with the least back-a-forth and with the least administrative burden on me (the thing that can deters people from refinancing to begin with). Karis is always on top of everything. Karis knows her stuff. She is the most responsive of any professional service provider I've ever used (my banker never text with an update at 7pm on a Sunday) without being overbearing. You know she's got your back and in my experience the value speaks for itself. Thank you to the whole UNO team, thank you especially to Karis.

Regarding UNO Home Loan services. I had great experience with uno home loans, Michael parsons was my broker for UNO Home Loans we had excellent communication throughout the whole home loan application. If I had any questions on home loan application which were many were answered in great detail. He had the time to assist me in filling out endless application forms at anytime through the day or night which made the application process stress free. So I would strongly recommend Michael parsons from UNO Home Loans to try his services you will not be disappointed. Thanks to Michael parsons I have the lowest home loan interest rate I could ever hope for which I particularly ask for. It’s was a pleasure working with him. And will be using his services in the near future.

First time I have used a Broker and I must say Andrew Wyers and his team were amazing to work with and handled my refinance from a Big4 bank. He was able to understand my needs and find a lender that will be able to help me grow my investment portfolio. Andrew and his team kept me updated as part of my refinance journey and made the process super easy and I was able to refi to new lender in under 2 weeks. Would highly recommend Andrew.
