Alex shares her experience; Elwood to South Melbourne
“Hi I’m Alex and I’ve moved from Elwood into storage into South Melbourne. Lucas and his worker came to move me today. Really professional, really friendly, I felt really comfortable as a female moving on my own. Really looked after my stuff very well. Got everything done really, really quickly. I’m very, very happy. Very professional, thank you.”

Melbourne was the first capital city of Australia for 26 years between 1901 and 1927.
It is Australia’s second largest city with a population of 4,641,636 spread over 453km2 and is Australia’s fastest growing city. And it’s no wonder, with the city repeatedly being awarded the honour of the world’s most liveable city (since 2011).
It’s also widely considered to be the sports capital of the world (officially winning the title 4 times in the last decade), boasting the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Australian Open, and more.
The weather in Melbourne averages 26°C in January, and 13.5°C in July. The hottest day on record was 46.4°C in February 2009 (Black Saturday), the coldest being -2.3°C in 1869. Average rainfall is 65cm, with October usually the wettest month.
House prices are gradually rising (like much of Australia), with the average buying price $770,000 but quite varied depending on the direction and how far out.
If you’re looking for a home near a good school catchment, you’re likely to pay above average prices for the general area. According to Domain.com.au, “Some popular schools zones have outpaced city-wide averages by more than double…”
One key point of differentiation with Victoria, is the abolishment of stamp duty for first home buyers if the purchase is under $600,000. If the purchase price is between $600,000 and $750,000, stamp duty is tapered.
