oak park Suburb Profile & Review

The name Oak Park evokes images of tree-lined streets and beautiful parks, and the suburb itself does not disappoint. Located just to the east of Essendon Airport, Oak Park is a quaint family-friendly area with numerous reserves on its edges. The Moonee Ponds Creek Trail travels under and around the Tullamarine Freeway on its way to the suburb, allowing recreational and commuting cyclists the chance to enjoy their surroundings without traversing heavy traffic.

St Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School and Oak Park Primary School cater to young children in the area, while there are additional schools in the surrounding suburbs, particularly in Glenroy.

Oak Park Station is on the Craigieburn line and trains take less than thirty minutes to reach the city. Those who prefer to drive will find it is only a twenty minute drive into the CBD along the Tullamarine Freeway and CityLink Tollway.

oak park 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.
