Now more than ever, what McAlpin Ward and Greater Maroondah needs is Less Bureaucracy and More Action!
A thriving Municipality is one not held back by red tape, but is assisted to it's fullest in small business creation, residential growth, and a future of prosperity. Let's sow the seeds now, and use the money from rates, wisely...
Average rental price in the City of Maroondah for 2020 is;
Ringwood $438 PW
Croydon $440 PW
Ringwood North $490 PW
Ringwood East $430 PW
Bayswater $390 PW
Warrandyte $600 PW
Less than 5 minutes away in Mitcham, average rents are $450 PW with the median house price being $1,015,000, whilst the most expensive area in Maroondah has Warrandyte's median house price at $1,100,000, with the remainder of Maroondah at a median house price of $800,000.
One of my key policies is to help boost land value so retirees, empty nesters, and families looking to invest can all benefit, but this absolutely should not be done at the exploitation of renters.
RENTS will go up when the RATES go up, a landlord has not much choice, but let's keep it fair and comparative to neighbouring suburbs. Rent stress especially in these difficult times is tough, but it can be less stressful if kept relative to wages and median house prices. We want to grow the City of Maroondah and McAlpin Ward, not drive people away.
Let's keep it fair!
