One of the decisions prospective home owners need to make before they purchase a new property is whether or not they want to live in the city or the countryside.
Cities are undoubtedly attracting a multitude of investors, but with high demand comes high house prices – making regional Australia look like the more affordable option.
Yet with cities come good jobs, and can all those who opt to live in the countryside find the right kind of work?
These are the sorts of things it is important to think about before committing to a real estate investment.
According to the Regional Australia Institute (RAI), in recent years there has been an increasing number of people leaving cities for a slice of countryside life. Between 2010 and 2011 more than 37,000 people left Brisbane for regional areas in Queensland.
If you are currently living in Brisbane and are thinking of making a change, why not consider somewhere like Caboolture?
The last stop on the commuting rail line, Caboolture is within close enough proximity to Brisbane for people to get to work, yet it has beautiful countryside on its doorstep and is far away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD.
On paper it looks as though real estate in Caboolture has the best of both worlds – but there is only one way to find out for sure. Why not arrange a few real estate viewings in the area today?
