Sunshine Kisses and Surfer's Paradise in Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia, is once again of the most livable cities of the world for the 5th year in the row in 2015. The success of the city's urban growth boundary has led to more job opportunities than any other Australian city while sustaining a strong economic growth rate. It is no surprise for a city full of culture, entertainment, excellent healthcare and hot weather to be such a popular choice for overseas investors.

Transportation in Melbourne is extremely efficient. There are 5 railways stations that are part of the Melbourne Underground Rail Loop that stretch across the region and interstate. Trams are also commonly used down the main streets such as Flinders, Collins, Spencer Street and more. Extensive bus routes and schedules are offered throughout Melbourne as well. For sport enthusiasts, cycling is a great option as most cycling trails lead to the CBD and down Swanston Street. To transport across the rivers, ferries along the north bank of Yarra at Federation Wharf and Aquatic Centre as well as water taxis are available.

Many residents will head to the beach or go surfing in their spare time, with one of the most popular beaches in Melbourne being St Kilda Beach. Boasting a fabulous city skyline view, it is the perfect location for sunsets. Picnic areas, barbecue pits and play facilities are offered to the public as well as paths suitable for cycling, walking, and rollerblading. Another popular beach is Port Melbourne, which is renowned for kitesurfing and beach volleyball. Some areas allow off-leash dog walking and playgrounds for children.

The property market in Australia has proven continually stable. Melbourne holds a preliminary clearance rate of 75.2% as of May 2016, which is higher than same late spring market last year and has shown consistency as of February. This is very promising to overseas buyers that would like to invest in a well-developed market and less risk inflected investment.
