Hi all, (hope I've put this in the right sub-forum, mods, if not please move it to where it would be most appropriate) am after some feedback on Murray Bridge. We have looked at this area as a possible town to migrate to. There looks to be some lovely property at a very affordable price. The local view reviews on real estate.com seem positive although it only gets a rating of 70/100.
We are a family of 4, both 29 with 2 young children 3 and 4. My Oh is a Barber and hopes to start his own Barbering business when we arrive. We are looking for a somewhere with enough of a population to sustain another barber shop, but also one which is affordable as we don't want to eat into too much of our equity from our house sale.
We are not overly concerned about being near the coast, the most important factor really due to setting up a small barber shop is affordability. We would like a leafy area, with easy access to reserves walking trails etc. Somehwhere with good access to childcare incase I need to work too. Good schools for my children, and somehwere where there is plenty to do.
When I look at google earth of adleiade suburbs, it is a little off putting, the suburbs all seem to blend into one big area, there does not seem to be any distinction between them, which is obviously not what we are used to being from the uk where generally there are networks of villages towns and cities which have definite distinctions between them.
Other possible areas we have looked at are mount barker, huntfield heights, woodcroft, happy valley - areas to the far east of the southern suburbs so we are closer to the hills / bush.
We also looked at Victor Harbor, but after speaking to someone who lived there found that there are already 3 barber shops although after searching the internet could only find 1 listed - so this has become a bit of a stumbling block in our research, not all small business are listing themselves. Is there anywhere that would have a comprehensive list of a ll commercial enterprises whether advertised in local business listings or not?
looking forward to peoples opinions!!
