I hope no one takes offence by this question, as I am still to get a hang of the culture down under, So here goes. I have been looking at a few neighborhoods to settle into after we migrate in a couple of months time. I have seen that some houses have Roller shutters on the outside of their windows, why are these installed? for security? if so does that mean its a bad neighborhood? or is it for some other purpose? should we stay away from such homes?
Again please excuse my ignorance on this subject.
Thanks in advance.
