burwood Suburb Profile & Review

Burwood has a strong family sensibility 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.

It’s important to note when looking at this data that you don’t just use it on its own. Consider this demographic and real estate data as a whole and seek advice from a professional when thinking of buying or selling your next property.

burwood 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 burwood 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 burwood 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.

This ABS Property Type data combined with Population Density and Family Composition figures gives a good indication of the type of people living in an area and therefore what type of property (1-2 bed apartment or house) would be an ideal investment or property to live in.

burwood 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.
