bayswater Suburb Profile & Review

Bayswater is a peaceful suburb overlooking the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne's outer east. From Bayswater Station, residents can catch a train into Flinders Street on the Belgrave line, while an extensive bus network whisks passengers to surrounding areas. Commuters can reach the city centre in forty minutes along EastLink.

Young families send their children to one of four primary schools, including the well-regarded Our Lady of Lourdes School. Bayswater Secondary College offers a range of VET and school-based apprenticeship programs in addition to its VCE training. Bayswater Park has two ovals for football and cricket, and its playground section, known as Train Park by locals, flaunts a full-sized steam engine that the kids can climb all over.

The recently completed Mountain High Shopping Plaza on Mountain Highway has a twenty-four hour gym, a Coles Supermarket, cafes, banks and other retail stores. Supermarkets like Aldi and Safeway can also be found scattered throughout the area. Locals are commonly employed by industrial manufacturers such as Siemens and Vulcan, as well as CSR, Kenworth and Dupont in Bayswater North.

It’s important to note when looking at this data that you don’t just use it on its own. Consider this demographic and real estate data as a whole and seek advice from a professional when thinking of buying or selling your next property.

bayswater 5 Year Median House Prices

Here we have outlined the median value for all sales for each year over a period of 5 years. This is a more realistic timeframe when gauging how houses and units in bayswater have performed, and it usually indicates how they will perform in the future.

Median values less than 3 months old are often not always accurate (due to incomplete data) and therefore cannot be relied upon for long-term bayswater property price predictions.

Typically, inner city suburbs within 10km of the CBD are comprised of apartments and semi-detached homes, while middle ring suburbs have semi-detached and detached properties. Rural properties would most likely fall under the “other” category.

This ABS Property Type data combined with Population Density and Family Composition figures gives a good indication of the type of people living in an area and therefore what type of property (1-2 bed apartment or house) would be an ideal investment or property to live in.

bayswater Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
