richmond Suburb Profile & Review

Industrial, urban, and trendy, Richmond personifies Melbourne's diversity. Heritage listed terrace houses share narrow streetscapes with converted warehouse apartments and high rises. Young professionals live side by side with old Vietnamese and Greek families.

Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre is a home decorating mecca due to its Kmart, Freedom and IKEA stores, while Swan Street offers an endless supply of pubs, restaurants, cafes, fashion retailers and furniture stores. The fashion hungry roam Bridge Road for bargains in the factory outlets, before they stop over for coffee and brunch in popular cafes such as Gypsey & Musquito or Cafe Azul.

Footy fanatics visit Punt Road Oval during the AFL season to watch the Tigers play, while a stroll over to the MCG, Olympic Park or Rod Laver Arena presents a pick of sporting events and concerts.

You will never be stranded in Richmond - its four train stations (Richmond, West Richmond, East Richmond and North Richmond), seven tram lines and extensive bus routes make this nigh on impossible. But for the energy conscious, you can cycle into the city along the Main Yarra Trail and the Capital City Trail.

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.

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 richmond 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.

richmond 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.
