Hi johnNot knowing Sydney very well.
I would like personal opinion with investment hat on, on buying a
House in Stanhope Gardens or Glenwood
v townhouse or villa in Baulkham hills pls.
i thought monalisa's question was a valid question in order to assess what exactly are you looking for. i don't think she was not trying to be rude unless she says soIs this one of those times where if you don't have something positive to say then say nothing at all.
Would you invest here? Have you invested in these suburbs?
Would depend on the individual property but between the two in a general sense I would take the house in stanhope gardens.
In my view, Blacktown region will make better investment - there is so much going for it, in terms of business investment (as I mentioned in my PM, Sydney plan 2036) [Edit: by Blacktown region, I mean blacktown, Mt Druitt, and surrounds]Thanks for the reply. Can I ask why?
I have read/heard good things about Baulkham Hills being a desirable place to live. Nothing negative. A societal perception or attitude that the Hills shire is better than Blacktown. Different demographic and background of tenents also. If people want to live there then that lowers the risk of vacancy. If I want to sell there would be buyers. The BA suggested Stanhope and Glenwood (I don't want to get into a debate on using BA's either). I have looked at stats on those areas, I have looked at google earth. If those are both in Blacktown shire why would someone live or buy there instead of the neighbouring cheaper areas?
There are a two who may be able to help with Western Sydney - Propetunity and Nathan Birch. However, as you have already stated - whatever you buy won't necessarily be a bargain.Thanks Monalisa
My head also says why not other areas - where there is better yield and prospects. The BA doesn't service those areas. -+ It has taken a while to get to the point of having the ducks in a row to buy in West Syd. Now that I can it is a sellers market. Add to that I also may have missed the boat - as people have posted on the ridiculous prices people are paying for average/ low condition homes. I don't expect a bargain but I would like to avoid overpaying.
Glenwood & Stanhope benefit from being close to Norwest. Easy access onto the M2/M7, Stanhope is a short drive to quakers hill station & also if the norwest rail link gets completed. Stanhope also has some good sporting fields and a popular aquatic centre. Some very high prices being paid in neighbouring Kellyville ridge & the ponds. Places to avoid would be around the correctional centre & main roads.Thanks for the reply. Can I ask why?
