With the decline of the Australian dollar recently, there is a strong demand in the housing market especially from overseas buyers such as the Chinese, Hongkonger and Malaysian. This has resulted in a high competition in the property market in big cities such as Sydney, making it harder for property seekers to find their dream home.
Suburbs that have good public transports service and good schools often attract more buyers than others. For example, in the North West area of Sydney, we have suburbs like Epping and Eastwood. Each of them has a large train station, good bus services and shopping hubs. The schools in these areas are highly ranked in the yearly NAPLAN test. Therefore, many families with school-aged kids want to purchase a house there so their kids can go to good schools.
There are several websites available for property seekers to search for houses for sale in these suburbs. One of them is www.estatecentral.com.au. It offers real estate listings for each suburb across all states in Australia. Users can also search listings in the whole state such as properties for sale in NSW or VIC if they wish. Users can also filter the listing by price range and number of bedrooms allowing them to short list the properties of their interests easily.
But if families cannot afford to buy a house in these high-end market suburbs, they can try to look for a townhouse or villa which is also family friendly. With townhouse or villa property types, there is often a decent size backyard for the kids to play or to grow vegetables and flowers. The prices for townhouses and villas are often slightly higher than a unit of the same number of bedrooms, however they are often more spacious and have nicer landscaping in the common area. EstateCentral.com.au also publishes thousands listings of townhouses for sale in Sydney.
If someone cannot afford to buy a property, renting is always an easy option. Even though the rent has increased gradually across different states in Australia in recent years, it is still a cheaper option for many families. With renting, people often have more choices in terms of choosing a place which is closer to transport, shopping and amenities. The rent of different houses in the same suburb may vary depending on the size and the conditions of the place. Most couples often choose to rent in a 2-bedroom apartment.

In summary, it is always a challenge to find a good property whether to buy or to rent in a big city. With the help of online real estate search websites like EstateCentral.com.au, property seekers can search for many properties that match their criteria easily and efficiently in the comfort of their home.
