What the real es­tate agent says...

Inside Out (Australia) - - Inside Renovation -

“What a spot this is. The set­ting is just beau­ti­ful. It’s close to town but feels as if it’s a mil­lion miles away. The house sits on 40-odd acres, which so many buy­ers are look­ing for; many prop­er­ties around here are 100-plus acres and that’s just too big if you aren’t plan­ning to run cat­tle or farm. The pri­mary mar­ket is young fam­i­lies and those buy­ing a week­ender with a view to mov­ing here full time in a few years’ time. Peo­ple are look­ing for some­where they can work partly from home, that’s not too far to travel up to Syd­ney a cou­ple of days a week. That’s easy here be­cause it’s a bit closer to the free­way than other parts of the South­ern High­lands. Mit­tagong used to be seen as the poor cousin to Bowral but prices here have rock­eted in the last two years. An­thony and San­dra paid just over $1 mil­lion two years ago and with the changes they’ve made – and the strong mar­ket – they could prob­a­bly sell it for $1.7 mil­lion to­day. With a full ren­o­va­tion, they’d be look­ing at ex­cess of $2 mil­lion.”
