Picking a Suburb is Everything

By Sharon Ferriman

Whether you are in the market to owner occupy, rent or invest, the choice of suburb can mean a great deal to the ultimate outcome. For this reason it’s important to make the right choice in the beginning and where possible, don’t compromise. The wrong choice could cost you more than you hoped for.

Buying a Home

There are different motivations behind buying a home. Investing in property to rent out, to buy and resell later hopefully with a profit or to buy and make as your last home.

Ideally, whatever the reason, when buying it’s always best to try and buy in a suburb that will grow and where the home values will increase.

Renting a Home

The value of the home is not as important to renters; however, the location is for many, as it should be. One thing that will be governed by the area though is the rent. Generally the better the area the higher the rent.

What to Look Out For

Whether renting or buying there are a few uniform things to look for and visiting the suburb you are considering living in first is not a bad idea. Here you can take a walk and check out the locals in the shopping precinct and find out which stores are available.

If you have school age children or younger and plan to live there yourself you will likely be interested to know what schools are in the area and take a drive or walk by. You can really get a feel for a place simply by visiting.
