Inner north and South Melbourne has been tipped as two areas with good apartment prospects for first home buyers.

REIV chief executive officer Enzo Raimondo said Melbourne’s most affordable one-bedroom apartments are located in Carlton which recorded a June median price of $207,750.

“Affordable property around Melbourne is not restricted to the outer suburbs. Apartments allow first home buyers to get a foothold on the property ladder, especially in highly sought after areas such as Carlton,” he said.  

"Meanwhile Carnegie, in Melbourne’s south-east, delivered a median for similar sized apartments of just $292,500.

Other suburbs that rank highly included Elwood and St Kilda. These neighbouring suburbs boasted one bedroom median prices of $389,000 and $390,000 respectively.

"Buyers with budgets in the $400,000 range are able to broaden their search – not only geographically but also by considering two-bedroom options."

Footscray and Maribyrnong recorded median prices for two-bedroom apartments in the most recent quarter of $408,000 and $410,000 respectively.

Glenroyrecorded the city’s lowest three-bedroom apartment median price for the June quarter at just $465,000. Two-bedroom apartments had a median price of $375,000. 

Toorak had Melbourne’s highest median for two and three-bedroom apartment. Other top apartment suburbs include Brighton, Richmond, South Yarra and Docklands
