We think it’s fair to say that a lot of Australians are property obsessed! People love to follow their local property markets and tune into reality television shows to take a glimpse inside homes around the country.
No matter where you go you’ll find people that love property, however the dream of owning a home is undoubtedly becoming an ever-increasing struggle in Australia, particularly for a lot of young homebuyers in some of our largest cities – namely Sydney and Melbourne.
But luckily not everywhere in Australia is faced with the same affordability issues as our big city counterparts and more and more people are looking elsewhere to make their property dreams a reality.
We are increasingly seeing people packing up and making a tree change to places like Mudgee where properties are still very affordable (Mudgee’s median house price is $372,500 according to CoreLogic RP Data) and there is a fantastic lifestyle on offer too.
Mudgee is definitely one region where the great Australian dream is still within most people’s grasp and as Sydney property prices get further and further out of reach, it’s likely we’ll see more people turn to hidden gems like Mudgee where they can make their property dreams a reality.
Tips for those thinking about making a tree-change to Mudgee this year:
- Make sure you do your research: Before buying property anywhere you should get to know the local market conditions and the variances between properties. The more you know, the easier it will be to find a place that’s just right for you.
- Spend some time here: There’s nothing like doing research on the ground. Spend a few weekends in Mudgee, visit open homes and get to know local agents so you can get a good feel for the property market and the area too.
- Get the right help: Enlist the help of a buyer’s agent who knows the local area inside out and can help find the perfect property.
- Consider investing before buying: If you’re not willing to take the plunge and move to Mudgee just yet then consider looking at your investment options.
