Melbourne's 'astounding' property price growth continues

Melbourne’s eclectic cultural mix continues to draw Australians in, driving property prices up, according to Domain's latest State of the Market report.

The median house price is now just over $860,000, a much more attractive price tag than that of its neighbouring capital, Sydney.

With the unit median price now pushing up to $475,000, this city brings more than just the ‘cool’ factor to the table – it brings opportunity for first home buyers and investors alike.
