Put another shrimp on the barbie

‘Ello, Mate! Welcome to Melbourne! Fosters, Crocodile Dundee, dingoes, koalas, kangaroos, etc. Just kidding. You’re moving to Melbourne, Florida, a central coast town with a fairly progressive attitude and a large community of vacationers and seniors. Now, let’s get started on your apartment search, dude.

Melbourne: From Space Coast to Beach Boasts

Melbourne is located in Brevard County, along the Space Coast, so named for the proximity to NASA launching station, Cape Canaveral. The Space Shuttle program came to an end in 2011, but look in the sky for SpaceX Dragon and Cygnus programs with astronauts aboard.

So, though the area no longer sends men to the moon (or so they tell you), it does have, duh, amazing beaches. Though the City of Melbourne is located inland on the Indian River Lagoon, you are within a quick drive or bus trip to some of the best beaches in central Florida, including Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island.

If for some reason you’re moving to Melbourne and you are horribly terrified of beautiful beaches, sunsets, dolphins and/or seashells, that’s okay too! The city proper has a historic downtown area and arts district, featuring the Foosaner Art Museum. Additionally, the city has numerous restaurants (including some highly sought after local places serving otherworldly Cuban food – El Ambia and the unoriginally named The Cuban Sandwich – sorry locals for pulling back those curtains), bars and shopping centers that are easily accessible from all parts of the city.

Beachside

Because of its diverse population, Melbourne neighborhoods are kind of a mixed bag. Additionally, neighboring Brevard County cities—like Indialantic, Palm Bay and Viera—are all nestled in close to each other, so border neighborhoods tend to take on the character of the closest cities.

Seaside living is far and away the most expensive real estate in town. Yes, there are a lot of condos and apartments in newer construction complexes along the waterfront, but many of these places make their big bucks in vacation rentals, and have above market rent for long term. Again, Melbourne proper is located on the Indian River Lagoon, but connected to beachside towns and communities by the Melbourne Causeway—including the towns of Indialantic and Melbourne Beach. Two bedroom apartments on the on the ocean-side of the causeway generally go for $1150-1300.

Inland

Inland Melbourne apartments are much less expensive and also have the added benefit of being located in a less transient community—here you’ll be close to community facilities and shopping centers.Check out your block and talk to other residents before settling on a neighborhood.

North Inland

Northern inland communities, towards the neighboring town of Viera, tend to be more desireable. Because Viera is a newly built and incorporated town, you’ll find a lot of opportunities in condos and apartment buildings. This is great news if you like a suburban neighborhood feel, but if you find this type of construction too cookie cutter, set your sights to the south.

South Inland

Most southern inland communities have less in the way of new and well-maintained apartments with complex-style amenities. If you’re looking for a house, southern inland neighborhoods will be your best bet, as there are a number of single-family homes for rent in this area. Avoid the area directly adjacent to the Florida Institute of Technology, particularly on the east side of campus. Two bedrooms in inland Melbourne generally range from $550-800, depending on amenities and rental type.

Rental Tips

Fear not intrepid Space Coast astronaut-pioneer! Melbourne has an extremely rental-friendly housing market, with a diverse body of rentals—everything from studio apartments to condos to single-family homes.

But, Melbourne is a vacation city that is also popular with the retirement crowd. If possible, start your apartment search during the summer off-season, when there will be less competition and lower rates for rentals. If this isn’t possible, start your apartment search at least two months before your winter move-in date to guarantee enough time to find an ideal rental.

In general, you can find great rentals without the aid of real estate agents through online apartment searches (heyooo!) or in the classifieds. Background and credit check fees range from $30-50.

Transportation

Commuting in and around Brevard County is fairly painless, particularly if you already live in Melbourne. Many area residents commute to the downtown business center from nearby cities, so living in town will save you some highway hassle. However, if you find yourself needing to get to Palm Bay or Viera for work, I-95 rush hour is brief (generally from 8-9:30 in the morning, and 5-6:30 in the evening), and will only cause minor delays.

The Space Coast Area Transit system (ha-ha, SCAT) provides Brevard County residents with fixed route bus services throughout Melbourne and into neighboring Palm Bay, Rockledge, Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach.

There you have it, fair Melbourne apartment hunter! We have lift off. Up, up, and away. It's launch time. You get it.

August 2019 Melbourne Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Melbourne Rent Report. Melbourne rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Melbourne rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Melbourne rents decline sharply over the past month

Melbourne rents have declined 0.9% over the past month, but have increased marginally by 0.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Melbourne stand at $968 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,227 for a two-bedroom. Melbourne's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.5%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across cities in Florida

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Melbourne, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Florida, all of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.5% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

    • Looking throughout the state, Pembroke Pines is the most expensive of all Florida's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,422; of the 10 largest Florida cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Port St. Lucie experiencing the fastest growth (+3.3%).
    • Orlando, St. Petersburg, and Tampa have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.4%, 2.1%, and 2.1%, respectively).

    Melbourne rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased marginally in Melbourne, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Melbourne is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Melbourne's median two-bedroom rent of $1,227 is slightly above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 0.6% increase in Melbourne.
    • While Melbourne's rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.1%), and New York (+1.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Melbourne than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Melbourne.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
