I LIKE THE SUBURB BUT I DON’T KNOW IT THAT WELL?
The best way to get know an area is to research it online, then go and see it in person.
Start by searching for properties you like and then go to the open inspections. Talk to the agents about the area and on the way there and back; keep your eyes open for traffic issues, construction sites, transport, shopping centres, parks and schools.
Once you have visited around a dozen properties, you’ll start to get a good feel for where the best locations are.
