Aside from finding a home with the right amount of bedrooms, bathrooms and outdoor space, it’s essential that you choose a property in the right location. After all, you spend a lot of your time at home, so you want to make sure the area matches your lifestyle.
Whether you’re building a new home, buying an established property or searching for vacant land in a new community, here are the signs you’ve found the best place to live.
1. You’re central to the essentials
You don’t have to live in the CBD to be central to everything – at least not everything you need. When scouring suburbs for your perfect location, it helps to make a list of all the amenities that you want in close proximity.
Are you a coffee lover who needs a high-quality café within walking distance? What about shopping centres, schools, child care, fitness facilities and public transport options? Or perhaps wide open parkland is essential to your everyday living? You’ll know you’ve found the right location when everything you need is close by.
2. The price is right
Of course, many would love to live among the multimillion-dollar houses in the richest suburbs, but that simply isn’t feasible for most Australians. Instead, you want to ensure the suburb you’re buying in has affordable home and land prices for what it offers.
The additional good news is that buying in a new community or outer suburb means the average property price is lower than being right in the city – so you could be eligible for helpful government support like the First Home Owner Grant or First Home Loan Deposit Scheme.
3. Transportation is always nearby
With most of us commuting to work, we need to know that public transport options are readily available and in close proximity. If you’re a city worker, for example, then a nearby train station should be top of your must-have lists for finding the right location.
But you also want to know you have easy accessibility to other transport options. Are you close to main highways and hotspot suburbs? What about airports? At Savana, for example, residents are just a 30-minute drive to Melbourne’s Avalon Airport or 40 minutes to Tullamarine Airport.
4. Education, healthcare and plenty of green space
Whether you’re raising a young family, upsizing for more space or downsizing to a quieter community, finding the perfect location means having the right facilities nearby. And not only the right facilities, but high-quality ones.
That means investigating whether your favourite suburbs have good child care and schools, healthcare facilities and lots of parklands around. If you plan on living in your next home for the long-term, then this is a big consideration to make sure you move to the best possible area for your needs.
5. You’re in a community of like-minded neighbours
There’s nothing quite like living in an area where your neighbours all have similar values and life goals. In a family-friendly community like Savana, you know you’re in the right place with people who also want to live in a relaxed and inclusive boutique community.
Once you find a location where the people around you also want the same things, you know you’ve found your new home.
