Planning to buy/ build first home and bit indecisive in making a choice on north vs. west. I work in city. I drive to work as my job is mostly in off peak hours and I hate using public transport.
I am looking at Mernda vs. Tarneit
I have always lived here
It’s more greener and more safer (I believe!) than west,
Land is cheaper in Mernda than Tarneit
Pretty much same drive to west , east and city if work changes
North Cons: Looking at 1.15 hours to 1.30 hours to drive to work. A non-freeway drive.
West Pros: 30 mins from Tarneit to city in off peak hours.
Not as safe and green as north (I believe!)
Land is expensive in Tarneit
Looking to commit to one of the lands very soon. Your input towards my first home will be much appreciated. I Can’t afford east.
