The Glen Huntly Road shopping strip contains eateries, retail stores and professional services. Chadstone, the largest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere, is just a fifteen minute drive away. For those with a passion for golf, the Elsternwick Golf Course is an 18-hole course that provides facilities for local residents.

Elsternwick has a great selection of primary and secondary schools, including a campus of Wesley College. A number are respected Jewish schools, such as Leibler Yavneh College and Sholem Aleichem College.

elsternwick 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.
