braybrook Suburb Profile & Review

Braybrook is an up and coming suburb in Melbourne's west, located only twenty minutes from the city centre. Once full of factory sites, development has made the area attractive to first home buyers. Immigrants are also drawn to educational facilities such as the Western English Language Centre.

The Braybrook Community Centre is a fabulous modern resource catering to the western suburbs. It features a healthcare centre, childcare facilities, rooms for hire and a community garden. An aviation themed shopping centre called Central West Plaza (built on the grounds of a former RAAF base) offers something a little different on Ashley Street, while West Footscray's bustling markets are also close at hand.

Public transport in the area is extensive. Cyclists enjoy use of the Maribyrnong River Trail, which meanders through the suburb on its way towards the Docklands. Six bus routes offer transport to surrounding suburbs. Tyabb and Sunshine railway stations are both conveniently close for train travel into the city.

braybrook 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.
