Melbourne

Hi,

Can anyone suggest some good real estate sites for Melbourne?

What are the good (affluent) areas, from what I've heard the east of the city is better in this regard.

Cheers,

Stu

You could say that the more affluent suburbs are in an arc from the Yarra River around to the Princess highway and a few places not so far outside of the arc, though the affluence lessens the further out you go but you get a broader affluent semi-rural lifestyle.
At the other end of the rainbow is the regeneration of inner city areas that occurs and quite a few inner suburbs can be a reasonable if more crowded and apartment style living choice.

My brother lived in Yarraville which was nice. But the more expensive areas are Toorak, Prahran, Mont Albert, Williamstown, parts of Brunswick, Malvern, just to name a few.

Fridge

So we're moving down in August. We're looking for something in the $450/week range. Why do none of these houses have a refrigerator?! Gah! Nice, newer homes. No fridge. What's the deal? And there's no mention of washer/dryer, etc. Anyone?

MELBOURNE is the most European of Australia's cities, and while it may lack a truly stunning natural setting or in-your-face sights, its subtle charms are addictive.

It just isn't what happens is all I can say. When I first came to the UK 10 years ago, I was suprised that they offered fridges and washers in rental properties, I have been used to having to buy them myself whe living at home in Australia.

Melbourne is the second most populous city in Australia, with a metropolitan area population of approximately 3.7 million.

Melbourne is the state capital of Victoria and is home to over 70% of all Victorians.

Thumbs up Hello there

There are very good sites you can find in Google. When you enter top real estate sites try to find the sites in first page because Google place them in higher rank. The higher the site the better is it for you. I find <a href="http://www.aussiemanremovals.com.au/" title="removalist in Sydney">removalist in Sydney</a> services through Google and i was benefited from it.

Frankston

I think we are looking in the Seaford to Frankston area. Can anyone tell us what the utility rates usually run for a family of four? Peak-summer in Michigan our electric bills are around $200/month, and the water bills run around $150/month. Also, can anyone recommend a good American-Women expats group / social club / book club / ...?
