north melbourne Suburb Profile & Review

North Melbourne residents range from young professionals and students to recent refugee arrivals from the Horn of Africa. The area's diversity is exemplified on Errol Street, a shopping strip featuring quirky retail stores and cafes (the French Quarter patisserie is a must!). Some of Melbourne's best hospitals can be found just across Flemington Road in Parkville, while the University of Melbourne Parkville campus and RMIT University city campus are both mere moments away. The Queen Victoria Market, famous for its fresh produce and popular Night Markets in the summer, are also a short walk away.

There are two primary schools in North Melbourne, North Melbourne Primary School and St Michael's Primary School, and there is one Catholic secondary school for girls, St Aloysius College. Students are also within the qualifying zone for University High School in Parkville; one of the best government secondary schools in Melbourne.

Flemington Bridge and Macauley train stations are situated in North Melbourne on the Upfield line. Trains take six minutes to reach Flinders Street and three minutes to reach Southern Cross Station. There are also three tramlines running through the suburb: route 55 from West Coburg to Domain Interchange, route 57 from West Maribyrnong to Elizabeth Street in the city, and route 59 from Airport West to Elizabeth Street.

north melbourne 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.
