When you buy a property there are two major factors for consideration: the lifestyle on offer, and the price growth of the area for future resale.

You want to love the property you are in and enjoy all the area has to offer, but it is also important to ensure other people will share this love. Take into consideration cafes, parks, school zones and proximity to the CBD, because whether you plan to resell within 12 months or not for 20 years, you want to make money on your investment.
