Hitting The Ground Running in Wollongong
While there have been plenty of people talking to Travis about building their dream home, he’s noticed a few trends.
“My main customers would be young families, not necessarily first home buyers but second home buyers with young families. People relocating from Sydney has been quite common as well; they’re generally after flatter, more affordable land first and foremost, with single story, four bedroom houses,” he says.
This trend of relocating for suitable land lots is something he’s noticed over the years building in the area.
“Over last 10 years in the Illawarra/southern Highlands/South Coast area we’ve seen masses of growth, with areas booming in all aspects… styles and products are constantly evolving and housing sizes have generally been getting bigger. But in general, the biggest trend would just be the population growth across the whole region, and the availability of land to purchase.”
With this population growth, Travis feels you can’t really go wrong with where you build, especially with our available house and land packages, so long as you get into the market sooner rather than later.
“If you can find the land to build on, this area still has huge growth potential with huge growth currently happening. I think for lifestyle, and financially, anywhere around here is a good option to build. Either relocating or investing in the Illawarra/southern highlands/South Coast region, I think will provide generous returns for years to come.”
So why not jump in and start building?
“Don’t over extend yourself, but don’t be scared because I believe house prices will be going up around here for a long time. Join forces with a friend/partner or parents if required, take advantage of the government grants on offer – making a start is the most important thing.”
