Demographics: East Melbourne has a great mixture of owner occupiers, young professionals, out of town investors and a more mature generation of owners as well as those utilising their apartments for a secure lock-up & leave city base.

Construction Nearby Underway: 150 Clarendon Street (luxury high-end apartments in the former Mercy Hospital site), 1 East Melbourne (high end apartments in old train yard site next to Wellington Gardens on Wellington Parade South).

Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year: We envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in East Melbourne for the remainder of 2009. Dependant on bank interest rates, we could experience a flattening of the market in 2010 in the plus $500,000 sector. Mum and Dad investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power. From the rental results above you can see the excellent investment opportunity that Hotham St apartments offer in an expensive blue chip neighbourhood. This in turn should cushion it from too many market fluctuations.
