heatherton Suburb Profile & Review

Heatherton is a quiet, safe suburb in Melbourne's south-east. Due to the presence of Moorabbin Airport, the area has retained many open spaces, and it is dominated by beautiful parks and golf courses. Heatherton is located on Melbourne's renowned sandbelt, and Kingston Heath Golf Club and Capital Golf Course are considered two of Australia's premier golf courses.

Young families are drawn to the area's modern estates and the proximity of the beach, which is only fifteen minutes away. A cinema complex, department stores and fitness centres are all available at nearby Westfield Southland, while DFO Moorabbin can be found along Centre Dandenong Road next to the airport. Arco Restaurant is a sophisticated Italian eatery within Heatherton itself.

Heatherton Christian College, an independent Prep to Year 12 college, is the suburb's only school. The nearest train station can be found in Cheltenham, where trains run to Flinders Street on the Frankston line in fifty minutes. Residents can also reach the inner city on the Monash Freeway in less than forty minutes.

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.

heatherton 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.
