WBP’s Sean Thomson suggests that it’s becoming hard to buy well in Flemington’s house market, as prices have gone up so substantially in recent times. “It’s become a very popular area. If you can get into the area, I’d be concentrating on the apartment market,” he says.

Units have been more than holding their own compared to houses, and their median price offers an entry point that's realistic on an investor budget.

“I would be concentrating on either one- or two-bedroom apartments,” says Thomson. “As an investor I’d stay away from three-bedrooms. With the investor market, if you buy a one- or two-bedroom apartment, in a 10 to 15-year time period you’re going to have better growth and more opportunity with buyers in the long-term. The three-bedroom market is mainly homebuyers rather than homebuyers and investors.”

He adds that Flemington, like a lot of Melbourne’s popular inner-ring suburbs, offers the kind of lifestyle and amenities that the city’s urban go-getters look for.

“The village lifestyle is becoming very important, where people eat out for breakfast lunch and dinner. So if you’re close to 24-7 wining and dining, but also parks and public transport then your property’s going to become more and more popular as time goes on.”

And with half of Flemington’s population being renters, according to ABS data, it appears that the local demographics support Thomson’s thinking.
