flemington Suburb Profile & Review

Flemington is a suburb forever associated with horseracing. It has been home to the Melbourne Cup since its inception in 1861. During the spring, thousands of racegoers flock through the gates of the Flemington Racecourse. Located less than ten minutes north-west of the city centre, Flemington is bounded by the Maribyrnong River and Moonee Ponds Creek. As an inner city suburb it is primarily made up of weatherboard cottages and brick terrace houses, though high-rise apartments and public housing estates are also widespread due to the diverse immigrant population.

Racecourse Road is a cultural smorgasbord of restaurants, pubs and takeaway shops. Pin Oak Crescent also boasts a small collection of cafes and coffee shops. Suburban shopping centres can be found next to Newmarket Station and the showgrounds on Epsom Road. Highpoint Shopping Centre in Maribyrnong is less than ten minutes away.

Newmarket Station provides frequent train services to the CBD on the Craigieburn line. Macaulay and Flemington Bridge stations also service the suburb. There are two stations at Flemington Racecourse and Flemington Showgrounds that accept services on special event days, easing congestion on regular lines. Trams 57 and 59 travel through the area on their way from West Maribyrnong and Airport West into the city.

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 flemington property price predictions.

flemington 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.
