Something that buyers and tenants generally consider when they’re looking to move location is the accessibility to work or school. Is there adequate road infrastructure to travel between popular places of interest? Simply put, we’re very lucky in Mudgee with our commute… compared to Sydney-siders who spend up to 2 hours in the car just getting to work in the morning!
If you think about what you can achieve in the time it takes you to travel to and from work, shopping or school, it isn’t any wonder that regional areas like Mudgee are attracting more city people to live and work here. People that have moved to rural areas have also commented how a similar travel time commuting here is much more relaxing then in the traffic and congestion of major cities.
Another great benefit of living in a community like Mudgee, or other towns in the Mudgee region, is that we can walk or ride a short distance to facilities such as shops, schools, parklands, medical facilities and sports grounds. At worst it’s only a few minutes to commute anywhere by car within Mudgee or Gulgong townships. With no traffic lights, there’s not much to hold us up which is a bonus.
As a seller or investor, make sure you point out to your agent, the benefits of living in the location of your property and the time it takes to travel to popular parts of Mudgee. It can be a real feature in attracting potential buyers or tenants, especially those from out of town.
What are your thoughts about your commute here in Mudgee, or Sydney for that fact. If you travel to and from Sydney city regularly, how do you compare the two? And if you take public transport, are you happy with it? What are your feelings on commuting?
