Epping - Suburb Demographics : Census 2011

To better understand the PROPERTY MANAGEMENT potential of your INVESTMENT PROPERTY it is crucial to research the suburb of EPPING. A good starting point is to assess the population demographics of EPPING to understand who are your potential tenants and/or purchasers.

As experienced property managers our property management team uses this information to identify the target market when developing a marketing strategy for your rental property.

This ensures that we provide our landlords with the most accurate advice, achieve the highest rent and attract the best tenants who will look after your valuable investment property.

Unfortunately in most cases the local REAL ESTATE AGENT PROPERTY MANAGEMENT places little importance in keeping up to date with this vital information. Usually because they are either overworked, under staffed or don’t understand the importance.

Proportions in this table are calculated by taking the number of households whose rent payments were 30% or more of an imputed income measure and expressing this number as a proportion of the total number of households in an area, including those households which are not renting their dwelling (excluding the small proportion of visitor only and other non-classifiable households). The nature of the income imputation means that the reported proportion may significantly overstate the true proportion.
