Price Isn’t the Only Factor to Consider when House Hunting

Price has never been the easiest factor to consider when it comes to Australian real estate. You will see prices skyrocketing in cities such as Melbourne and Sydney, and it seems like there’s no end to their incline. As the market starts to cool, now is your chance to find a property befitting your family needs.

With price out of the way, there are other factors you should look into when deciding. These are some of them:


Most homeowners are thinking of settling down or starting a family when they decide to look at new homes in hot markets like Perth. This means there are plenty of things to consider, especially when it comes to their future needs. You might be newlyweds right now, but soon a baby might join the family and in a few years, you might run out of backyard space for the young ones who want to play.

Friendly Community

A hostile environment is not what you’d envision surrounding your growing family. Consider how friendly the community is by making a couple of visits to observe the neighbourhood. Community gatherings can give you clues on how everyone cooperates with each other. If there’s a neighbourhood watch, even better, as it means someone has your back.

Progressive Amenities

Perth is one of the most popular cities in Australia, so progress is not a big concern overall. In your chosen location, however, there should be signs of growth. Watch out for community improvements and government-sanctioned roadwork, so you will rest easy knowing your quality of life will only improve in time. For a family-centric community, there should be technologically advanced facilities for childcare and education, to name a few.

Who wouldn’t want to live in a place that only thinks of the happiness of your family? Check that your house is in a place just right for your lifestyle now and in the future.
