sandringham Suburb Profile & Review

Once a fishing town known as 'Gypsy Village', modern Sandringham retains both its village charm and its scenic beauty, and is now known as one of Melbourne's most prestigious suburbs. Its long stretches of beach are offset by rocky clifftops, while parks and gardens overlook the boating clubs of Picnic Point. Sandringham Village is the main shopping district and boasts quaint gourmet eateries, restaurants and bars.

Football is a popular pastime in the area, and games are played at the Trevor Barker Beach Oval. The Sandringham Yacht Club is one of Melbourne's foremost sailing clubs, and its impressive marina can be admired from the dining room of the Harbour View Restaurant.

The Mornington Peninsula is less than an hour's drive along the Nepean Highway, while the city can be reached in half an hour. Train services run from Sandringham Station to Flinders Street, and various bus routes will also whisk you to surrounding beachside suburbs such as Hampton, Black Rock and Brighton.

sandringham 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.
