Mortgage repayments are directly related to house prices in City of Belmont, length of occupancy and the level of equity of home owners. When viewed with Household Income data it may also indicate the level of housing stress households in the community are under. In mortgage belt areas it is expected that households will be paying a higher proportion of their income on their housing compared to well-established areas. First home buyer areas are also likely to have larger mortgages than upgrader areas where households move in with equity from elsewhere.

Mortgage payment levels are not directly comparable over time because of inflation. For comparison of mortgage payments over time, go to Housing Loan Quartiles.

Derived from the Census questions:

'How much does your household pay for this dwelling?' and 'Is this dwelling [owned outright, owned with a mortgage etc.]'
