How do I know which area will offer the best value for money?
A: Buying a property also means buying into a neighbourhood. It is best to conduct a thorough check on what the neighbourhood is like in terms of safety and which amenities are nearby.
The area must align with your needs and wants. For example, if you have a growing family, then a family-friendly suburb is ideal. If you’re a young professional, perhaps the CBD or an area close to a commercial hub would work best for you.

◆ What is the distance to work?
◆ What amenities do I want nearby?
