When you move to a city that you don't know, picking the right area to live is not an easy task. Doing your own research involves a fair amount of time that may leave you overwhelmed by the amount of information you find.
SpotHunt collects and combines information about suburbs to help you in choosing
the place that suits your needs. All the information is fact based, and you can combine your criteria to short list the best areas quickly.
House prices/Rent cost
If you are buying or trying to rent a place, you can filter the suburbs by the average costs.
Select the type of dwelling you are after and the number of rooms that you need. Then select the price range that suits you.
SpotHunt will filter the suburbs with an average price within your target. The average price is calculated from prices of properties advertised over the last year
If you commute to downtown you can also filter the suburbs by the average time that you would spend driving or in public transport.
If you have family members in school age, and you would like to enroll them in a public school, use SpotHunt to filter the suburbs according to the performance of their school. Either secondary or primary schools. The perfromance classification is based on the average NAPLAN results of the schools in the area of the suburb.
If you enjoy a suburb with good places to eat, use the restaurants filter to find the suburbs with plenty of good options.
Use the crime filter to compare the differences between suburbs in terms of safety.
Take in account that this classification is relative to the whole city. Cities in Australia have in general a very low crime rate relative to most other countries in the world.
When you apply your search criteria the results will be displayed in a list. If you are filtering on housing then the results will be sorted by this criteria.
The filtered suburbs will be displayed in a the map as well. If you click in a suburb on the list then the map will zoom to the location of the suburb and a window will appear in the map with the information of the suburb.
