It is very livable, but trust me, find a place in Maroondah Shire and you will pay about a third of the rates we do here. Maroondah shire btw is only about 5 kilometers closer to the city from here and has all the livability features Kilsyth does (more according to many people I know)
Kilsyth is ranked down at 280 out of a possible 314 suburbs in Melbourne. Demographically it is mainly comprised of Aussies in their late 30s. It is a less affluent suburb where incomes are around $560 a week for a single. Rent costs around $275 a week but a mortgage is around $1600 a month.putting it out of reach of the average resident.
