Want to know which Melbourne suburbs will exhibit the best capital growth in the future?

You know how they say ‘the best indicator of future performance is past performance.’

In Aussie’s 25 year property trend report CoreLogic has identified the best performing suburbs for price growth over the past twenty five years, based on change in median prices between 1993 and 2018.

Across the Top 100 suburbs for price growth over the past twenty five years, 81 were located in a capital city and the vast majority (41) were Melbourne suburbs.

During the 25 year Melbourne house prices rose 8.1% higher per annum on average, and in that time more and more Australians bought an investment property in Melbourne.
