doveton Suburb Profile & Review

Doveton is a residential suburb in Melbourne's south-east, separated from Dandenong by the Dandenong Creek. The area is set to benefit from several upcoming developments, including the Dandenong town centre redevelopment and the amalgamation of several Doveton schools. Currently there are four schools within Doveton: Doveton College, Doveton Primary School, Holy Family Primary School and Maranatha Christian School.

Local football and cricket clubs meet at Power Road Reserve, where there is also a playground for the kids. Families with children also enjoy Myuna Farm, where they can get up close and personal with farm animals, take pony rides and jump on a miniature train. Local retailers and takeaway shops can be found along the Princes Highway, while major shopping centres such as Dandenong Plaza, Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre and Westfield Fountain Gate are moments away.

Doveton is roughly thirty-five minutes from the city on the Monash Freeway. Bus services between Doveton and surrounding suburbs such as Dandenong and Endeavour Hills are widespread. Dandenong Station is less than ten minutes away for those who prefer to leave their car and commute into the city by train.

doveton 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.
