Melbourne & Sydney are amongst the top cities best positioned for long-term success [infographic]


Australia has come a long way since I was a kid.

We’re no longer a big country a long way away from everywhere else.

Well…we are in fact a big country a long way away from everywhere else, but now we have 25 million people, we’re an economic powerhouse and a financial hub and we have 2 international super cities that eclipse most others. Melbourne2

In fact  Sydney and Melbourne rank highly in JLL’s City Momentum Index 2018 as being best positioned for long term success.

  • Sydney ranks #14
  • Melbourne ranks #17

Of course as a property investor, this means you can’t afford not to own assets in either the Sydney property market or the Melbourne property market, because their long term growth is assured.

The JLL Index covers 131 major established and emerging markets and tracks a broad range of factors to identify cities that have the strongest short-term socio-economic and commercial real estate momentum, and those that have the future-proofing capacity for longer-term success and looks at key factors such as the number of tech firms, education, environment, transparency, infrastructure, and international patents.

Here are the top 20 Cities


Interestingly, no cities from China, Latin America, Africa, or the Middle East make this first list.
