The western suburbs of Melbourne are undeniably the best place to live if you want bang for your real estate buck. This traditionally working class area of Melbourne is seeing a wave of gentrification pass over it – so where do you rate as the best suburbs in west Melbourne to buy or live in?
Melbourne’s inner west is becoming particularly attractive. Over 10 short years, Yarraville has transformed from a slightly dodgy area to one of the most desired addresses in Melbourne. Nearby suburbs like Kingsville, Spotswood and Newport are all also transforming into fashionable postcodes to live in with lots of great restaurants and facilities nearby.
Of course, there’s also the unofficial CBD of Melbourne’s west – Footscray. Although this suburb used to be requently derided as one of the worst suburbs in Melbourne, it’s clearly shaping up for a major real estate boom – we’re predicting you’ll see something akin to Collingwood’s Smith Street or Brunswick’s Sydney Road with a distinctly Asian twist.
Let’s not forget the burgeoning outer west, either – Werribee is growing at a tremendous rate, but is it one of the better places to live in Melbourne’s west?
