moorabbin Suburb Profile & Review

Moorabbin is a relatively small suburb located in Melbourne's south-east. Despite their names, neither the Moorabbin Airport nor DFO Moorabbin are actually in the area; instead, they are located fifteen minutes further south in Mentone. A bustling retail district can be found around the Nepean Highway and South Road intersection, just next to Moorabbin Station. Trains travel from here to the inner city on the Frankston line in under thirty minutes.

Moorabbin Oval was once home to the St Kilda Football Club, but the club's training and administration now occurs at a recently completed site in Seaford. Moorabbin still houses the club's merchandise and gaming facilities.

For families with young children there are three primary schools: Moorabbin Primary School, St Catherine's Primary School and Southmoor Primary School. A Holmesglen Institute of TAFE campus on South Road offers vocational training to 10,000 students, while the Bayside Special Developmental School caters to students from kindergarten to Year 12 with special needs.

moorabbin 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.
