    thanks ladies

    We would love at least 3 br, 4 would be a bonus!
    Enough room for three crazy kids and two border collies, atm we live in a small miners cottage on a 500ish (i think) sq block...so it doesn't have to be 'ruralish'...just not on a main road, with loads of traffic.

    The big boss has mentioned richmond as a branch, but nothing concrete, so it could be any where.

    I was thinking we might have to rent first to get a feel for an area, and wait for our house here to sell, then buy...and we are middle to low income, so $300K - $350ish ,000 would probably be our limit. (unless we win lotto)...not a huge amount I know, but we like to live within our means, with me not working atm.
    Am always willing to buy and renovate.

    I'd like to be close to schools and a shopping centre so we don't have to drive for ages in the car - It takes 15 minutes to drive from one side of our home town to the other!!
    But in saying that I lived in Adelaide for 5 years and used to travel for over an hour to work, and got used to that pretty easy.

    Is there any areas that would be considered dangerous, or not child friendly?

    I have a friend who lives in Windsor Downs (next to Richie) she loves it there. My Camden friend loves it except for public transport in peak hour!

    Hi there,

    Can you give us some ideas where these locations are?? West Sydney has quite a wide range. But Blue Mountains is probably a bit too far west!!

    I'm from Liverpool, in South West Sydney, I'm happy to recommend some nearby areas for you.

    Does it have to be west? There are some nice semi rural places up North like Dural...more $$ though.

    Do you want it to be rural-ish? would you consider the suburbs? city? etc

    What is your price bracket for property? Do you want 3/4 bedrooms? What do you require exactly?

    Sorry, thinking aloud here!

    eta: yes, where were some of the sburubs on the list mr boss gave you?

    anyone!!??


    DP has just brought home a list of where all the branches are located and I suppose I'll look at the suburbs surrounding them.
    Had a look on home hound and fell in love with the homes in the blue mountains...probably way too far out though hey, especially for DP to get to work and kids to go to school??

    any way...

    hope I can get some heads up on maybe some suburbs to avoid ??!!

    thanks nic

    Well just got a phone call from DP, he has been on the phone to his general manager (or 'big boss') ...who suggested we start doing some research into Sydney and what areas we would think about setting up in, because if anything comes up over that way in 2009 he will be ringing DP.
    He suggested west sydney as it is probably the closest we have to 'home' a bit more country like he said.


    So I am doing exactly that -Research- asking all you mums out there what suburb you think would be great for a single income family with thre kids aged 3.5 and under with two dogs

    DP's parents live in Wallalong, we thought about living in maitland and around there, but that would mean DP would have to travel Loooong hours - don't really want that (used to him only taking 7minutes to get to work!).
    I will consider going back to work part time ...but don't really want to.

    We own our house here, and could sell it or rent it.
    what are the prices like there!? (just about to hop on Home hound in a tick.)

    (sorry i've just babbled on...but it's come as a bit of a shock and i'm rolling playdoh and drawing with textas (on the paper not on the floor thanksDD!!) at the same time!!)

    So if you can help...even recommending suburbs outside of this region if you'd think they'd be better suited...it would be very much appreciated!!

    Cheers!! nic x
