Among Westfield's 400 stores, you will find a Myer, a David Jones, Woolworths, Target, a Fitness First Gym and a JB Hi-Fi. Other cafes, restaurants and specialty stores can be found on High Street and Doncaster Road, while Centro Box Hill, with its array of multicultural restaurants and supermarkets, is a ten minute drive away.

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.

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 doncaster 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 doncaster 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.

doncaster 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.
