@Cynthialiu041 in that area you might be able to get a 3br unit for a similar amount this year. Or possibly even a semi/ townhouse if the market keeps dropping. Have you thought about Naremburn? I live there and like Wollstonecraft, it gets the ripple effect of growth in Crows Nest/St Leonards without the major construction projects. The side I live in has less steep hills than most of Wollstonecraft, so it can be an easier stroll into Crows Nest/St Leonards. I can also recommend renting in one of the areas you mention to see if you like it. This is how I decided to settle down around here, so renting worked for me. And there's no rush, I can't see this market sky rocketing again in the near future.
