dandenong Suburb Profile & Review

Over half of all Greater Dandenong residents were born overseas in non-English speaking nations. Major ethnic groups include those from India, Sri Lanka, Northern Africa and Afghanistan. As a result, residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out, especially around Thomas Street.

Food lovers are also drawn to the the Dandenong Market, which provides residents with fresh and culturally diverse produce three days a week. Dandenong Plaza houses major chains like Myer and Target, a Readings cinema complex and 180 specialty stores. Though the suburb doesn't have much of a nightlife, freeways and public transport are very convenient, and the city is only a thirty minute drive along the Monash Freeway.

There are at least fifteen primary and secondary schools in the greater area. Dandenong High School features an extensive English as a Second Language program due to its diverse student population. Dandenong is surprisingly well-served by public transport, despite being 30km outside the CBD. This is largely due to Dandenong Station, which is a major hub for the eastern bus network.

dandenong 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.
