I've been stabbed about three times at the Frankston train station by a Blarab on crack. I would highly not recommend living here as I am currently living in a tv cardboard box.

Hi Kailee,

I have lived in Frankston my whole life and love it! It's a great spot to live! I have never had any issues with crime or anything like that.

Hope this helps!

Hi Kailee1994. Great question and in my job I meet a great deal of people who have moved down from closer to the city to live in Frankston. I recently had some clients who grew up in Cheltenham, moved down to Frankston and they love it here! Buying a property in Frankston is a lifestyle 'sea' change. Yes there are some shady characters in Frankston and some areas are not so nice, however I live in Cheltenham and there are some very strange looking people who hang around the train station and telephone box! Frankston is similar to a box of Favorites - some properties are your plain old chocolate flavour and some properties we sell are absolutely stunning and a real Turkish Delight :-)

No it is not a safe area, hence, the property prices are so low despite beach front nearby. High crime, lots of drug addicts and bogans.

I've lived in and around Frankston for most of my life, yes there's a few eggs but hasn't everywhere got a less desirable place to be or live? I love Frankston, and the increase in prices in every corner was always on the cards. I think that some people are thinking in the past rather than the future. Yes it had a bad reputation especially in the 'Pines' and 'Karingal' but that is disappearing very quickly due to new or renovated properties in those areas. The old shabby looking houses getting good prices at auction etc. I welcome the new Frankston and surrounding suburbs, the updated hospital, Uni, schools, new houses and other developments (Pen link, train station, PARK etc)
