I think generally the further out you go the cheaper it gets. I'd live out in Ballarat (not exactly Melb but Victoria) if I could as it's so very affordable (to rent or buy) and a beautiful place to live, however the commute is long.

If you're after cheaper suburbs I'd search Homely using the map search in different areas of interest, and restrict your budget to what's do-able and you'll get an idea of the cheapest places available in different suburbs.

Happy Hunting!

One of the cheapest suburbs in Melbourne is Melton. A three bedroom house goes for around $230,000 - $250,000. Personally, I would not want to live there. Two reasons: 1. It’s not very safe – in my opinion 2. Apart from the CBD area, most of the places worth going to, eating at, or visiting in Melbourne are in the eastern suburbs (not to be harsh to the western suburbs, the urban sprawl means that the ‘true centre’ of Melbourne is about Glen Iris, not the CBD). Additionally, most of the employment opportunities are in the CBD or inner eastern suburbs.

On the outskirts of the eastern suburbs there are a few cheap suburbs such as Seville or Mount Evelyn. They are safe, bushy, family friendly areas, but the public transport is not so good.

In reality it depends on what you’re buying the house for (live-in or investment) and if it’s to live in, what your needs are (young family, single, etc).
