    Hiya it shouldve avoided the floods i think,where abouts in ipswich eactly is it.Ipswich used to carry a bad reputation but this last few years they have invested into it and its booming now ,it won the''best small city in the world for familys''award early this year.Queens park at ipswich is one of the best parks ive seen over here,good luck with everything

    north ipswich

    hiya

    the house is in barkell street, north ipswich just near Brassall if thats any help. I had heard it used to have a reputation which was worrying me a bit, we have not seen the house (cant believe we actually bought a house without seeing it!!!) we are hoping to renovate and sell pretty quickly and buy another its the only way we can get on to the housing market now it has got so expensive over here in perth no one stands a chance in property unless they bought a year or so ago. where are you from?

    north ipswich

    hi cal

    thanks would appreciate that, also was going to enrol my six yr old son into brassall state school if they know anything about it? yeah its a joke over here everything has doubled since we got here 3 years ago from food shopping to cars and houses god knows how anyone is managing on a normal wage. we have been over there a few time on holidays and it does seem a bit cheaper houses especially, how long that will last though i dont know, it seems about the same as perth was 3 years ago.

    Hiya ive just made a phone call and am lead to believe its an older part of ipswich with lots of older Queesnalnders.Not the most desirable place to be but not the worst,i wouldnt like to say anymore as its not from experience only hear say,i find you get a good feel for an area by just driving through so you can always venture further afield when youve renovated if its not your cup of tea,,good luck and keep me informed how you go,when are you thinking of moving?

    hiya

    god you have me worrying now, hope its not too bad there, have to live there while doing the place up. we complete on 18th feb but my parents are coming over here on 12th march so going to stay with them for a week then me and hubby coming over for a few days then parents flying over with kids. hubby probably going to come back to perth for a few weeks as work really good here for next few weeks for him get some money behind us to do house up rather than arrive without any work.
