Is Homeswest a major issue in Innaloo?

I am looking to buy a propert in Innaloo opposite a Housing Commission block of villas. How can I tell if this will be a major issue? I know these properties get a bad rap for those that ruin it but are there better complexes with mostly elderly residents?

Unfortunately it really comes down to the individuals moving into that complex. Most of them will go about their daily lives without disturbing others, just like most of us.
One thing I will say is that from personal experience (and that of a couple other people I know), you do tend to see more issues when there are multiple "housing commission" residences within close proximity to one another. This relates to both Innaloo and other suburbs.
I would try to find out how big the dwellings are going to be, as will give you an idea of what type of residents will live in them (i.e. one or two bedroom places I am guessing would be targeted toward older couples/singles, whereas three bedroom+ would be used to house bigger families)

Hi Claire, I have to say it really depends on which block of villas it is. I moved to Innaloo about 13 years ago, and I have never had a problem with break ins or excessive issues with bad behaviour. Now, this is no guarantee that you won't have issues, but I think there are a few bad eggs and overall the residents of Innaloo are pretty great. I could identify a couple of trouble spots I would rather avoid. I would rather not name those spots on a public forum, but feel free to message me for a chat.
Cheers - Sam
