St Marys ticks af­ford­abil­ity, con­ve­nience

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

LOKESH Dodda is just days away from set­tling on a twobed­room unit at St Marys for $413,500.

The 34-year-old se­cu­rity guard said a lot of fac­tors in­flu­enced his de­ci­sion to buy his first home in the area, but the main rea­son was af­ford­abil­ity.

“I can only get a loan ap­proved for a cer­tain amount, and for what I wanted the ar­eas I could af­ford to buy in were St Marys, Mt Druitt, Wer­ring­ton and Kingswood,” Mr Dodda said.

He said the prox­im­ity to shops, schools and child­care in Put­land St at St Marys re­ally ap­pealed to him, as he plans for the fu­ture with his girl­friend.

“If I do end up hav­ing one or two kids it will suit our needs,” Mr Dodda said.

“I could buy a unit in Har­ris Park where I live now, but for the price the unit would be around 15 years old.

“The St Marys unit is around four-and-a-half years old so it is still cov­ered by the builder’s war­ranty.”

He said his new unit had two bath­rooms, gas ap­pli­ances and was move-in ready.

“The only thing I would change, and it’s just per­sonal pref­er­ence, is to get rid of the car­pet and have tim­ber floors,” Mr Dodda said.

Lokesh Dodda is buy­ing this St Marys unit.
