How Much Does It Cost to Build in Melbourne?
A quick look at this article by realestate.com.au will give you a ball-park figure of the construction costs around Melbourne. However, due to the complexities associated with construction a lot of other variables will come into play which can dramatically affect the final value.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the average cost of construction, as of June 2018, is $1,270.80 per square metre, but this number can vary significantly depending on the nature of the project.
The article states that the most significant financial expense for the construction of a new home is the price of the land. The Urban Development Institute of Australia’s 2018 report calculated the average lot price in Melbourne to be $304,000 in 2017.
