Researchers Melek Cigdem-Bayram and David Prentice found a proportional increase in mostly violent crimes would be more likely to hit regional areas.

"Because there is less variation in crime rates across metropolitan Melbourne, buyers do not respond to difference that are not there," the report said.

"It is likely that Melburnians expect a certain level of exposure to crime irrespective of where they live."

No such phenomenon occurred for crimes against property including burglary or theft, the researchers found, regardless of whether the property was in a regional or urban area.

"Put directly, there will be more property crime in areas with higher house prices as there is more valuable property to steal," the report stated, but this had no direct effect on house prices.

Overall, psychological harm to homebuyers by crimes targeted at people was more significant than the influence of property-related crimes such as burglary.

"One possible explanation for why this may be the case is that some measures of self-protection can be taken to reduce the likelihood of property-related crimes while this is less the case for crimes targeted at individuals," the report found.

The Infrastructure Victoria authors said the findings could be used to better target investment in justice services in areas where crime had an influence on other parts of the economy, including house prices.
