Good suburbs for first home buyer


Iam interested in buying a house in Melbourne. Some info:

1. House NOT apartment.

2. First home buyer

3. budget: around 300k

4. Currently single, but getting married next year

5. Stay for around 2-3 years, then rent it out.

Can anyone recommend good suburb to look at? and state some of your reasons

Cheers -

With a budget of 300k you are not going to get a house anywhere near the city sin sid. Maybe Melton (about 25k west) Keilor (about the same) but depends how far from the city you want or are prepared to go.
