    Hello All,
    Can anyone suggest good Suburbs with good schools and transport facility ? its for my PPOR.

    My preferences include

    1. Land area > 450
    2. Good Schools
    3. Near to any public transport commute to CBD within an hour.
    4. Price range between 900-950K for a 3+ bedroom Free standing house.

    I was looking in following suburbs and I have provided my thoughts on that.

    1. Baulkham hills \ castle hill - Too pricy nothing much for 950K budget.
    2. Kellyville - Lots are small 250-300 and most of them are new. is it worth it ?
    3. Quakers hill - Ticks all my boxes but I see old houses. All good homes are near Hameldon public school (which pocket in Quakers hill is good for PPOR?)
    4. Glenwood - We like the suburb but good homes are close to 1.1Mil.

    others suburbs in my thoughts (Kings langley,West pennant hills)

    Can you guys provide me your suggestion ? I am thinking about growth of those suburbs in future.

    Inputs are much appreciated. Thanks.

    How come most lots in Kellyville are new? You must be looking at North Kellyville all the time

    I saw properties near metro (which falls in Bella vista public school). I went for a drive near that area and most of them are new house. There are properties near Windsor road and Kellyville Village but those are bigger plots and range aroud 1.2 mil

    Hi Karthik
    As mentioned above, look at Parramatta satellite suburbs, including Wentworthville, Pendle Hill, Girraween, Toongabbie. Takes about 35-45 minutes train ride to the city, which is pretty good I think, given how long it takes to travel from some of the newer areas.

    Winston Hills is also popular amongst families, but not sure if you will get in at your price point. Downside is there is no train especially if you work in the city.

    Thanks for the comments. I have missed Girraween in my shortlisted suburb but not sure about greystanes and Toongabbie.

    Girraween will be bit pricey comparing to my price range. Do Greystanes and Toongabbie have good schools ? have to look around.

    I don't know about schools - but the key is, these places would have gentrified too. Girraween and Toongabbie are next door to each other. If you can't afford in an area, the surrounding areas will catch up in terms of prices too - even if they lag behind.

    Girraween High is excellent but it is a selective high school so entrance is exam only.

    While the primary school seems to perform as well as nearby schools in Baulkham hills (with the exception of a certain OP class school) High school is performing arts and not great in academic results

    I saw a land listed for 775-800K and thought I could buy it and build a single level house there.

    But it got sold to 800K few days back.

    Your budget is 950. What were you planning to build?

    Building a home might cost more. But I can wait and build probably few months later.

    What changes in a few months? Also buying land and building means different types of loans.

    The simple fact is the budget isnt enough for your wishlist.

    Hi

    Greystanes Public School is an OC (with gifted class) school...it is a primary school and then nearby Girraween is a selective high school..

    It should be in your budget and fit your criteria:D
