Once upon a time a backyard and a nice quiet street were two of the staples when it came to finding a family home.
But in the past 12–18 months we have seen a growing interest from families to make the shift into the CBD.
In the past, inner city living has been a lifestyle reserved for downsizers and professionals.
Ji Thornhill, Director of real estate agency PropertyOwners, believes this spike in interest speaks to how liveable our city is becoming.
He has seen over time how the revitalisation of Geelong’s inner city has resulted in a more vibrant CBD and has consequently increased in appeal to families.
Furthermore, he has found that a motive for many people moving is to open up more time for family.
So, it makes sense that a low maintenance, conveniently located property would free up time that would usually be spent travelling to and from amenities, tending to gardens, or maintaining larger houses.
With such a booming hospitality industry in precincts such as Little Malop Street we now have a variety of healthy and decadent dinner options at an arm’s reach, again adding to the appeal and ease of inner city living.
