We are hopefully coming over to live beginning 2012 when (and if!) my visa is granted. Have 2 kids (5 and 1) and aussie husband and we're planning on moving in with in-laws for about a year before buying own home.
My dilemma is this.... in-laws have lovely home but its in Smithfield Plains and am very reluctant to put 5 yr old son in a local primary school as worried about area. On internet we've been looking for affordable housing and quite like salisbury heights, so son will need to commute for a time.
Is this realistic?
Are there any other nice areas where we could afford to buy? (Modbury bit expensive, Elizabeth too cheap and daggy!! just learnt that word!) would be looking for 3 bed house with garden
Would need to be near-ish to in-laws but far enough away that they couldn't 'pop by'.......hmmm
And don't want to uproot son from school after initially moving over so needs to be near-ish to smithfield plains
Not bothered about being near sea or swimming pool etc.
Any advice really welcome......
Visa has been submitted, medical booked Weds 17th August, been told 5-6mnths to process.....woohooo!
