burwood east Suburb Profile & Review

Burwood East has a strong family friendly atmosphere due to the high number of schools in the area. Along its northern boundary runs Gardiner's Creek, which has lovely reserves for recreational purposes like walking the dog, exercising or even having a picnic.

Schools of note are Presbyterian Ladies' College, one of Melbourne's best private girls schools, and Mount Scopus Memorial College, a highly reputable Jewish K-12 school. There are also three primary schools and two senior schools in the area. Deakin University's main campus is situated on the Burwood Highway and has almost 20,000 students.

Burwood's main shopping strip shares its borders with Camberwell at the corner of Warrigal Road and Burwood Highway. However, for some serious retail therapy, Camberwell Junction and Chadstone Shopping Centre are both minutes away. Tram route 75 travels along Burwood Highway to Vermont South. A ride from the CBD will take forty-five minutes. Burwood Station is located in nearby Glen Iris.

burwood east 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.
