"Close to cbd cheap trade off is more danger"

Its close to city and reasonable transport. But school and safty not as good as maidstone.

Its basically i cheaper maidstone (by around 50k) with the trade off being
-safty
-distance to cbd
-school zone
-public transport

If you have to rent, rent maidstone/west footscray instead.

"Multicultural"

Love the multicultural feeling as well as the industrial side of the suburb.
The proximity to the city is a bonus! (11km)

"Junkies all over the suburb"

Braybrook needs an redevelopment, majority of the suburb is decaying and council probably doesn't really care. Braybrook has huge potential but no one ever tries to make the potential reality, it's a very neglected suburb with homes that need to be teared down.
Pros
  • Affordability
  • Close to the CBD
  • Lots of new homes/ estates
Cons
  • Few old/ neglected houses

"Up & Coming Suburb!"

Braybrook is great for first home buyers & young couples. It is only 10 km away from Melbourne CBD with lots of new homes, schools, day care facilities, parks, shops and with Footscray & Seddon's restaurants at it's doorstep. Highly recommended!
