docklands Suburb Profile & Review

Situated around the banks of the Yarra River, home to several of Melbourne's most famous modern landmarks, Docklands is the main centre for the City of Melbourne's contemporary development. Once an industrial hub for shipping activity, Docklands now houses prestigious high-rise apartments, corporate offices, hotels, restaurants and educational institutions.

A popular place for professionals and singles due to its high-rise living, Docklands has several well-known shopping and entertainment areas. At Waterfront City, you will find Harbourtown, the Icehouse ice sports and entertainment centre, and Melbourne's only Costco store. Etihad Stadium, host to many a sports game and concert, is a concourse walk away from Southern Cross Station, the major interchange for city and country rail services. Five tram routes also link Docklands to other areas of the city, and three ferry terminals connect the area to the city centre and bayside suburbs.

People jog and ride along Harbour Esplanade, and dine in the many cafes scattered along the waterfront. The Docklands Sunday Market on Waterfront City's Promenade and Piazza lures bargain hunters looking for secondhand treasures. Watersports lovers will find yacht and sailing clubs on North Wharf Road.

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.

docklands 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 docklands 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 docklands 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.

docklands 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.
