It really is a depressed area and place to live!

A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, reassuring them to make this move?:

House & land affordability. Cheaper than established suburbs, but that's about the only bonus!


A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, discouraging them to make this move?:

Don't do it!!!
Traffic is terrible no matter which route you take - Plenty Rd, Yan Yean Rd, Epping Rd, all of them are horribly congested - even if you leave home before 7am!
Areas are not well services by public transport at all! Especially Bridge Inn Rd, not one bus stop along the whole road, despite numerous estates.
Estates 'appear' green, lovely and connected, but in our experience the area is filled with people who have moved in due to the affordability of house and land, but are now struggling with all the other expenses of living in the area such as money to do your driveway, money to landscape your home, money for services, bills and the extra expense of petrol with further travel. It really is a depressed area and place to live!

If one great thing was going to happen in your area next year, what would you want it to be?:

For us to afford to move out of the area to a place like Greensborough!
There are way too many things needed for 'one thing' to fix the area!
