    I've been thinking about buying an apartment in Melbourne for a while. I keep hearing about tiny, badly designed ones with "kitchens placed in hallways, a lack of ventilation and natural light, and poor storage."

    and apparently 40% are smaller than 50 square metres, which is smaller than just the BEDROOMS in many houses (eg. Sydney, London, Adelaide).

    source: 20. Avoid Melbourne's Poor Quality Apartments

    I'm wondering if anyone knows which apartment blocks I should avoid and if anyone knows which are good.

    I want one that I could potentially live in, then maybe turn an investment on when I sell it later or maybe rent it out down the track, but I don't want to get anything undesirable.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you are in love with a certain district but are uncertain at the same time as you are new there, a realtor would be a good choice to help you out. You will have the chance to view the apartments before making any deposits. Hence, you can first review your options to suit your accommodation and storage needs.
