Hi, Just joined this site and this is my first post. I'm also thinking about buying my first property. I can only afford an apartment and am thinking of a 2 bedroom and want to buy in an area that has good growth - well don't we all! My first thought is Marrickville, but would be interested in what others think is the "new Marrickville" (as agents are calling Marrickville the "new Paddington"). Is Marrickville still the new Marrickville or have I missed the boat?! I was also thinking Arncliffe - close to city, really nice period homes, new developments - could be up and coming?? Any views? Thanks!
