Why invest in Hunter Valley?

Sydney real estate is expensive. The whole world knows it. The unaffordability of living in the state capital has now brought a decline in the growth of property prices. This, in turn, is triggering increased demand for real estate in regional areas of NSW. These areas offer better value for money, more attractive growth opportunities and are still not too far from Sydney.

For these reasons the Hunter Valley is regarded as a property hotspot. It’s relatively close, it’s naturally beautiful and it is the largest regional contributor to the state’s gross domestic product. In terms of economic output, the Hunter Valley outstrips the GDP of Tasmania, the Northern Territory and even the Australian Capital Territory! This all means it is one of those rare places where lifestyle, jobs and future growth combine.

Currently, the region has an estimated 322,000 jobs and this is projected to increase to 384,000 by 2036. Better still, the NSW Government predicts an additional 70,000 dwellings will be needed in the area to serve that population. It’s the perfect time to extend your living arrangements with a brand-new granny flat.
