    Default Realestate. What is most important to you: Area/location of suburb or House.

    We live as close to our desired location as we can afford to providing we have met the housing criteria.

    Ie in our ultimate desired area we would only get a 3x1 but less than 10min away we got a 4x2 for 50k less so I can stay home with the babies for longer. our house suits us now!

    Location for sure but to get our 4x1 we got a house that needed a bit of work (which has mostly all been done for minimal cost).

    We bought a run down 60s house in a good area. But not my ideal forever location, but in a nice leafy bit of Brisbane with reasonable state schools and not too far to city.

    This. It's the real estate catch phrase. You can change a house to be all sorts of different things but you can't change it's location.

    We brought a house that we can work on over the years to make it perfect, for us bring close to family and city was important so location is the biggest key point for us

    Location but having said that I owned a house in a very desirable area but it was old and needed some work done to it that I didn't want or couldn't afford to do. I moved further from the city about 5km into a basically brand new house thinking the location wouldn't be as good but am so happy with the new location. It is sooo much better than the other one even though no one could have guessed that. It is much less snobby here and more family friendly.

    I've bought as close to my desired location as I can afford. Location is important, but I also have a budget so I had to work with that and find the right house, too.
