lilydale Suburb Profile & Review

Lilydale behaves like a bustling country town with areas of industry. Situated on Melbourne's eastern fringe, it is only forty-five minutes from the CBD on either the train or the EastLink freeway. Lilydale Station is the terminus for the Lilydale line and trains are available to take you to the city every thirty minutes.

The suburb is home to four secondary schools and five primary schools. It also has a Swinburne University of Technology campus offering TAFE and university courses. For shopping, there is The Olive Tree Shopping Centre on Main Street, and Stockland Lilydale Shopping Centre on Hutchinson Street. Lilydale Lake is a popular spot for a walk, a run or a bike ride. You can even try your luck at some fishing.

Some of Victoria's best wineries and fresh fruit farms are just a short drive away in the Yarra Valley. The Warburton Trail, a lovely scenic bike track that follows the former Warburton railway line, passes through the wilderness of the Yarra Valley region and many of the quaint townships in the area.

The demographic data below has been supplied by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), which is a government body. It is based on Census data collected every 5 years on the Australian population.

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.

lilydale 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 lilydale 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 lilydale 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.

lilydale 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.
