I’ve written recently about the little poll we’ve been running and the interesting results that it’s showing us (615 votes at time of typing).
However identifying the state in which you want to live is one thing, choosing which suburb you want to move into is another.
Getting first hand advice from people living in your shortlisted suburb is going to be a great way to get a view of what living in a suburb is really like.
A quick post in our Australian Real estate and where to live forum might well be a good start however there’s a lot of suburbs out there and waiting for someone who ‘just-so-happens’ to live in the same suburb may not be the most effective use of your time, especially if your looking to settle in one of the more remote areas.
It was whilst doing some research on Suburbs in an attempt to help out a couple of our forum members that I stumbled upon a pretty useful site.
The guys over at Domain.com.au have a handy little section on their site which provides suburb profiles of every suburb in Australia (well, I’ve not been able to find one which isn’t profiled yet).
They provide details of public transport, surrounding suburbs, house price data and a handful of other demographics which are compiled from a variety of sources including the Australian Bureau of Statistics and research by Australian Property Monitors.
So, to search for what might be your future Suburb then Click Here (Link opens in a new window).
Hopefully you’ll find the info pretty useful :)
