After some thoughts/discussion on apartments in the eastern suburbs of melbourne (15km-20km from city). Recently drove past a new complex going up in Chadstone which I will use as an example. www.realestate.com.au/119874813 The location looks good. Close to station, shops, tafe, pub (could be pro's and con's here?), bus etc. The development itself looks quiet attractive although the area does have housing commisons located nearby which isn't ideal. For those who have purchased suburban apartments, what should you be looking for and also looking to avoid? Thanks in advance.
