Hi all

 

Things progressing slowly (oh when, oh when will we get our acknowledgement letter for appl submitted end August?).

 

In the meantime we are heading off to Perth for a month in January to do some research & look at schools, houses etc. Problem is don't really know where to start.

 

We are working on the idea that Graham will probably be working somewhere around central Perth (based on the number of job adverts for brickies in this area). He is happy to commute upto around 45mins each way. Thinking probably head inland rather than towards beach as we live pretty close to beach where we are now & not essential to us. Looking at houses etc we can afford roughly what we want (4+2+pool) in Guildford, Midland etc areas but can't seem to find any info on what its really like to live there - ie are crime rates high, how long does commuting take etc. Once we've figured this out we can look at schools and then move forward.

 

Does anyone know of any good websites that give real peoples views on certain areas/neighbourhoods?

 

Many thanks
