Does it get any better? Living in WA’s South West

Earlier this year, Lonely Planet named Margaret River and southern WA as the number one destination in the Asia-Pacific praising its sapphire-blue coastline, towering forests and excellent dining choices.

It’s not only holiday-makers flocking to the region; sea and tree changers have been making the move for decades. And, it’s more than retirees packing up, it’s people of all ages. According to one property analyst, since the mid-2000s, nearly 80% of people changing from city to regional areas have been under the age of 50.

It’s no wonder people are choosing to live in the Western Australia’s south west; life is at a quieter pace yet there is so much to see and do.

The South West region is a melting pot of people and cultures, as diverse as the things to do.

“There are amazing beaches, natural beauty, wide-open space, wineries and breweries, and a thriving community with old fashioned country values,” says Mr Geoff Barr, Brand Manager of BGC Residential South West. “You don’t have to leave to go on holidays – it’s all right on your doorstep.”

The relaxed and carefree vibe of the South West gives you a sense of being on holiday every day. Other than the indisputable lifestyle factors, the region has a high level of amenity and recreational facilities that you would expect from any capital city.

But there is one thing missing; you don’t have to deal with road congestion, and there’s no traffic getting to the beaches nearby.

Build the home you’ve always wanted

If you are looking to move your family somewhere that will give them the space to grow into and freedom to flourish, building a home in the South West would make for a great option.

The South West has a large selection of blocks in beautiful land estates each offering something different, like being close to shops, schools, golf course or with views to the beach or forest. Once you determine where and how you want to live then your first step is to choose your patch of dirt.

With bigger lots for less, there is a good choice of home designs to give your family the space they need, while leaving plenty of room outdoors. With a large block, the backyard is your blank canvas; you can build a shed, an edible garden, or create a zone for the kids to play in the South West’s fresh, clean air.

Well-priced half-acreage blocks close to town are just the beginning, with excellent rental returns and investment opportunities also ripe for the picking.
