"Up and coming suburb"

Located only 12km from the city and only a 15 minute drive, this suburb is still reasonably priced to purchase in. This is a fantastic place to invest with many different shopping and school options. The properties in the area have decent sized blocks and creates a lot of potential for a successful investment.

The average rental income for a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom is between $360 - $390 per week. The prices are steadily increasing.
Pros
  • easy drive to the city
  • close distance from almost everything
  • Neighbours
  • Safety
Cons
  • older houses that require renovating
  • Shopping centre

"Lovely place"

It is a very lovely place with great schools. The houses are so affordable. Unfortunately the third runway of Melbourne airport has turned it down. If you are thinking of buying houses in this area, please do your research about 3rd runway Melbourne airport, you can even enter the address to find out how much noise will affect your house. The noise problem making houses in this area dropped 10-30%.
Pros
  • close distance from almost everything
  • friendliest people
  • Neighbours
  • Safety
  • safeway
Cons
  • Shopping centre

"Best kept secret"

We have lived in a quiet court in Gladstone Park for three years and we absolutely adore it. It is so quiet and safe, you can walk your dog at any hour of the day and feel safe.
Our neighbours are amazing and majority of the residents in our area are the same people who built the house they are living in.
You can get a great sized block with an older house with a lot of charm.
You are lose to all the freeways, however tucked away enough to not feel amoungst it all.
Only disappointing thing is the old school shopping centre, in desperate need of a facelift,
