There are also other things to consider such as location, amenities and security. So, this article is written to alleviate your concern. Before that, there is good news about this. Victorian government had released an announcement regarding the purchases of residential property within the City of Melbourne, as stated in the following paragraph, which may bring huge benefits for the investors.

· Stamp duty concession or exemption

Until 30 June 2022, only for the apartments located in the City of Melbourne, the buyers will enjoy a 50% stamp duty concession as long as the price does not exceed $1 million. A full exemption will be available for the new apartments that have remained unsold for 12 months or more since the completion of construction. Foreign purchasers are also entitled to the concession or exemption. Although it does not apply to the foreign purchaser additional duty component of the transaction, it still saves a lot for you. For example, you can save up to $27,500 if you purchase an apartment of $500,000. The stamp duty was originally 5.5% but now it is fully exempted, isn’t it quite worth to purchase a new apartment in Melbourne within this period? Additionally, Victorian does not have residency requirement for PR.

· Low interest rate

Foreign purchasers can apply mortgage loan in Australia and the interest rate on mortgage loan is as low as 3.88%. Compared to China, the lowest first-home loan interest rate in China is 4.9%, which is much higher than Australia. On the other hand, some people may prefer to rent instead of purchasing a property. But in the long run, you are just helping the landlords to pay off their home loan without owning self-property. Therefore, it might be more cost-effective to buy a new apartment for yourself now.
