Investing in the Melbourne Property Market

What should the Australian investor should be aware of? From metro-area differences to SDAs, we discuss trends that Australian investors must be aware of.

▶ Intro & Thoughts

Welcome to the finale of our three part miniseries about Australian real estate. In this episode, we zoom in on the Melbourne property market, key differences between main metros areas, and end on the nation-wide trends that any investor must be aware of. We are honored to have Terence Cheung as our guest for the third and final segment of this series, and hope that you appreciate his insights as an overseas investment specialist. Hope you enjoy

In our final episode with Terence, we began our discussion with Melbourne, but the conversation soon opened up to include  macro trends such as federally sponsored disability housing, and the need for stronger tech platforms. In any region, understanding the differences in infrastructure, culture, and way of life between the main cities can mean the difference between a good or bad investment. Australia is no different. Whereas Sydney is sprawling, Melbourne is concentrated, with a much smaller Central Business District (CBD). Comparatively, Melbourne has slightly smaller homes, which appreciate successfully if near schools. 

Meanwhile, the growth of Specialist Disability Accommodations (SDA) is applicable to not only Melbourne, but the entire nation. If real estate companies can develop projects that both care for those under the government program, and at the same time earn almost double yield, it is a win-win. When much of the world is grappling with the pandemic, with citizens increasingly voicing frustration, it is refreshing to hear of concrete steps that a government is taking to subsidize and encourage growth, in both community and business.

There are many more developments to come, so stay tuned for relevant content. That concludes our three part series with Terence Cheung, but for any questions and comments please do not hesitate to reach out, and as always, we hope you learned something!

▶ Intro & Thoughts (Chinese)

歡迎來到我們有關澳洲房地產的三部份迷你係列的結局。 在本集,我們將重點介紹墨爾本房地產市場,主要都會區之間的大差異,並以任何投資者都必須意識到的全國趨勢為結尾。 我們很榮幸邀請Terence Cheung 參與本系列的第三期——也是最後一期,希望您喜歡他作為海外投資專家的見解。 希望你喜歡!

在與Terence的最後一集中,我們開始了與墨爾本的討論,但是對話很快就拓闊至囊括了宏觀趨勢,例如聯邦政府資助的殘疾人住房以及對更強大的技術平台的需求。 在任何地區,了解主要城市之間的基礎設施、文化和生活方式的差異可能意味著投資的好壞之間的差異。澳洲也不例外。悉尼很廣大,而墨爾本則集中在一個較小的中央商務區(CBD)。相比之下,墨爾本的房屋面積要小一些,如果靠近學校,它們可以成功升值。 同時,特殊殘障人士住宿(SDA)的增長不僅適用於墨爾本,而且適用於整個國家。如果房地產公司能夠開發既照顧政府項目又能同時獲得幾乎雙倍收益的項目,那將是雙贏。當世界上的許多地方都在為應對疫情而苦惱越來越多的市民發出聲音時,令人耳目一新的消息是,政府正在採取具體步驟來補貼和鼓勵社區和企業的增長。 還有更多的發展,敬請關注相關內容。至此,我們與Terence Cheung的三部份系列總結了一下,但是對於任何疑問和評論,請隨時與我們聯繫,我們一如既往地希望您能學到一些東西!
