Four regional properties worth a look

Four regional properties worth a look

Regional property is booming, and it’s easy to see why. The reality of capital city prices means that many buyers, especially first time buyers, are forced to compromise on their dreams.

By contrast, regional prices are showing strong growth across almost every part of the country. If you buy now, there’s a good chance you’ll benefit from capital growth and improved infrastructure funding over the coming years. Not to mention all that fresh country air!

To get you started, here are four amazing regional properties worth a second look. Whether you want an equestrian paradise, self-sufficient country farmhouse or luxury coastal escape, we have just the thing for you.
