Default Anything in Banksia Grove Perth

Hi,
Can anyone tell me whether there is much in Banksia Grove (next to Carramar, WA) for families, especially schools and parks etc?
Houses seem very affordable (especially compared to Carramar) but is that because there is very little there or is it because it appears to be a new estate?
Thanks

It's hard to say this without upsetting people who live there but it's "affordable" because it's full of bogans and aborigines.

One of the reasons it's affordable is because many of the blocks/houses are not on mains water or mains sewerage.

I live there I am neither Aboriginal, Bogan, Scouser or Manc. I also have mains water and mains sewerage.

You may wish to check out this link

Or have a drive around and see for yourself, as we did, chat to people out doing there gardens etc. That way maybe you will get a more rounded opinion of the area

Hi all
I lived there for a couple of years, we found it alright, no crime, neighbours where nice enough. As soon as we left crime hit our old road, I don't know either its always been that way and we never noticed or a few not so nice people have moved into the area.
If I was to buy a rental property thats where I would be buying. I can confirm I had running water, sewage and adsl internet there.
Have a drive round, some roads have houses constantly up for sale so I would give those a miss Peridot Turn was one and Mist Place. I was in Frond, we had no trouble at all, there are 2 aboriginal families in the road but we hardly heard or saw them. If you drive past however you can figure out where they live.
At the end of the day if your short of cash and this is all you can afford well you havn't got much choice, we had a small amount of cash and this was the best we could afford at the time.

Hope it helps
Jenny
