Default North West/West of Melbourne

Hi,

What is your opinion of this area?

Housing Price? Is it good neighborhood? Good school around? Nearby amenities?

Do you have recommendation on this North West/West of Melbourne?

Thanks

Rgrds,
Wil

West of Melbourne is quite cheap and not too bad, but it is still the ass end of town.

In North West Essendon is quite a nice area although it does have a bit of a rough element.

How rough is it? As rough as Sydney or Melbourne/Perth inner city?

Thanks

How fast is it to commute to CBD?

No I wouldn't consider it that rough, just a matter of picking the part you want to live in, it is about 20 mins on the train to the west end of the CBD.

Hi,

You can try
http://www.realestate.com.au

But besides the photos, prices, locations, nothing else you can find (such as good neigborhood, schools, etc.)

And if you want to have online map, try
http://www.street-directory.com.au/

This is very good online map.

Even with this information, I guess, you still need to know:

1. Neighborhood (good or bad)
2. Schools, Shopping Center, Train/Tram, Amenities, etc.
3. Housing Price trend (going up/down)
4. Crime rate relatively to other areas in Melbourne.
5. etc.

Anyone living in Melbourne care to tell us?

Regards,
Wil
