Hey Melbournites! So, three weeks ago I move to Melbourne from Sydney, and Iâ€™m having a bloody awesome time down here. Iâ€™m currently living in Richmond and working in Altona. So far the weather, the people, the pubs, the bands have all been awesome. And much to my shock/horror thereâ€™s a bunch of suburbs that I can actually afford to buy in. For some reason Melbourne has expanded miles to the east, but nobody really lives in the west. Maybe Iâ€™m completely wrong, but Seddon, Footscray, West Footscray and the like are still quite cheap but only a few minutes from town and sometimes close to public transport. They remind me, on paper, of Marrickville and St Peters in Sydney 10 years ago. Iâ€™m single, young, stupid and have too large a disposable income so Iâ€™m planning on taking advantage of the above and getting myself a little bedsit for around 200k or so. So, the questions â€“ does anybody live in these areas? Is there a reason why theyâ€™re so cheap? I was also looking at a flat around Yarraville, but the St Kilda area shits me right up the wall. Are there any other areas out west that are worth keeping an eye on? Cheers in advance!
