Hi Raechel
I agree with the above in parts, however all areas can have good and bad. The best bet is to pick an agent that is prepared to assist you with your decision and perhaps the best way is to employ a buyers agent who can work on your behalf and achieve the best result for you. I am in Real Estate and have bought and sold according to my budget and my families needs. I would be happy to assist with any help that you need and listen to your needs as a buyer. Lea 0429 455 452

Albany is generally a really peaceful and safe place to live, work and study, so most areas would be good. I would definitely avoid Lockyer and most of Spencer Park.

I met a professional couple from Eastern states who said the real estate agent they bought their Lockyer home through (admittedly without visiting Albany first) told them "Lockyer is one of the nicer areas of Albany". No, it's not. It's arguably the worst. But some people still buy there and call it home, so it's horses for courses really.

Most areas in WA have problem houses/families somewhere (usually thanks to Government Housing placement) but I would be looking to buy in the north end of McKail (we lived in "the Sanctuary" and loved it there), Emu Point, Lower King, Warrenup, Frenchman Bay, the new part of Bayonet Head, Collingwood Heights, etc.

If you can, check out the neighbouring houses and sit near a house you like around 10pm on a Friday and Saturday night to experience the noise levels you can expect when living there.

I've lived in many places and rate Albany very, very highly.

And no, I'm not a real estate agent. ;)
