It’s no secret you get more bang for your buck when it comes to real estate in regional towns. But you also get greater variety.
Regional areas can offer a great lifestyle. The lower cost of living and supportive community feel are great attractions for capital city-dwellers looking for a change of pace. And there are housing options aplenty.
For example in Middle Ridge in Queensland, on one side of the suburb, houses are on standard size blocks. On the other side, properties are massive acreages.
Local governments of regional centres are working hard to entice city folk to make the move out of the big smoke and into their small towns. This assists with a more balanced population growth, which in turn supports the growth of local business and helps with any skill shortages in the area.
Regional towns aren’t like the bush - they are urban cities, just on a smaller scale. They have plenty of services and facilities, and for house buyers there’s great news too – lots of variety!
