What else should I think about when choosing where to live?

Your choice of where to live is important.  Make sure that you consider local crime rates, and your closeness to public transport, shopping centres, schools and other relevant amenities.  Websites like Quotable Value provide free local statistical information, including breakdowns of the household age groups living in your area.
Where you live can also impact others, so consider the living locations of your friends, families, and colleagues too.

It's important that you calculate the overall affordability of the property for your budget. Affordability is the rent or mortgage payments, along with food, petrol (commuting costs), power, water, rates, and local restaurant prices.  As the prices of these items and services vary from place it place, it's helpful to do some research.
