When you’re looking to buy your first home in the Canberra area, pouring through the suburbs can feel confusing.
While each has its attributes, how do you know whether it’ll be right for you in the long term? Fortunately, we have prepared a guide on which suburbs are best for your first home.
Aside from affordability, the Financial Times reports that millennials want to live in locations where they can spend time with friends. As such, you might be looking for a home that’s close to cafes, bars, and parks.
If you don’t own a car, commuting features start to come into play. How reliable is public transport in your area? And, will it get you to work quickly?
With a greater emphasis on well-being than many other generations, you may also crave an abundance of local amenities that facilitate your lifestyle, such as green outdoor spaces, gyms, and meditation centres. On the topic of mindfulness, if you’re thinking toward the future, you might want to look at suburbs that complement future family life.
Before purchasing your first property, consider what makes it perfect for you in terms of location. Try to look towards the future while doing this. For example, if a property’s main selling point is a quick journey to work but you’re likely to change office locations, could you look for something more suitable? Or, if minimalist living is quirky now, will it remain so if you have a family?
