Friend recommended Breakfast Point that is the suburb he likes best in Sydney. Saw one apartment there with front yard adjoining the tranquil waterfront greens. Very tempting
My strategy is to visit one suburb at a time on Saturdays and see a dozen open inspections at once. I'll then get a feel on how I like the suburb, and afterwards can delve deeper on the one or two suburbs I like the best, hopefully finding a really nice place to buy/rent.
One other good thing about visiting nice homes is in checking out good home decor ideas. For example, I saw this "mirror" which is actually a special frame with electronically-toggleable screen put around a TV -- functional and aesthetically appealing
