Hi, we are just costing up how much this whole adventure will cost us. eeeek. I have never been to Adelaide before (foolish maybe) but we really like the sound of laid back, green and peaceful yet a city. We live in Cornwall at the moment and love our lifestyle. We have space between our houses (although not everyne does in Cornwal lol) We live in a reasonable sized village on the coast and just love how friendly and laid back it is. We are moving to Oz as we feel my husband can have better work opportunities there, I also cannt work in Cornwall doing what I do so we searched for a place where we could continue our lifestyle and earn some money and Adelaide seems to be that. We are not ready to live in the hustle of a city yet we want to be able to get to the shops and have good schools etc etc.
I have googled/ pio/ pia and google earthed lots of areas that have been suggested and looked at prices of rents on realestate.com.au and I see the prices vary wildly as do the areas.
So what I am after if you are able to help is an over view of which direction we should be loking in. On my research I have found
North- A little bit run down and tends to have problem areas
West- Great for the beaches and nightlife/ restaurants- but google earthing it the houses seem very close and it looks a little busier than we idealy want
East- Slightly more affluent but not so good for beaches naturally, good transport
South- Developing, nice areas near the beaches. Houses much more spaced out reasonable transport links.
We are thinking South may be good as we feel it will offer us a bit of the country space and the ability to get to the city. Am I right in these descriptions? Or can anyone point me in te right direction from their experience
Also if I am right in saying SOuth what areas are nice as again some properties look amazing and some look like shacks
Thanks in advance
