st kilda Suburb Profile & Review

Home to Luna Park, Acland Street, the Palais Theatre and St Kilda Beach, St Kilda is just as popular for its entertainment venues, shopping strips and beachfront cafes as it is for its bohemian atmosphere.

Renowned for its distinctive arts culture, St Kilda plays host to the annual St Kilda Festival, which lures thousands of music lovers, families and tourists to the area. Live music performances from well-known international acts are common at both the Palais Theatre and the Espy. The Prince Hotel is also home to the famous Prince Bandroom and chic Circa restaurant. For families, parks such as the St Kilda Botanic Gardens offer a picturesque backdrop for a stroll or a picnic, while reputable private schools St Michael's Grammar School and Christian Brothers College are both located within the suburb.

St Kilda's impressive Edwardian homes offset the cosmopolitan shopping strip along Acland Street, giving the suburb a curious old-meets-new charm. Along this strip you will find some of the city's most delicious cakestores, though gelateria 7 Apples Gelato is worth visiting for its unique and award-winning flavours.

A well connected area for public transport, tram 96 services St Kilda along Acland Street, while route 112 and route 16 both travel Fitzroy Street. The Williamstown Ferry stops over in St Kilda on its way to key tourist attractions in the inner city.

st kilda 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 st kilda 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 st kilda 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.

st kilda 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.
