Planning on living in the Sutherland Shire?
Are you looking for a quiet suburb in the Sydney area, where you can settle down to a nice, quiet weekend, but still have convenient access to the CBD? If so, then you might want to cast your eye over a few of the properties currently available in the Sutherland Shire.
At around 45 minutes to the city by train, Sutherland Shire might require a commute that’s not everybody’s cup of tea. Though, for many, it’s just the right amount of time to take in a podcast or plough through a few chapters of a good book before hitting the office.
The weekends are when Sutherland Shire comes to life. With heaps of parks, wide open spaces, and quick access to the water, there are plenty of things to see and do.
Nature lovers can enjoy the peace and solitude on one of the many trails of the Royal National park: by foot or by bike. Water lovers can take to the waves with sailing, surfing, swimming, and wakeboarding. The hustle and bustle of city life are far enough away that the CBD may as well be on the other side of the planet, rather than less than an hour’s train ride away.
All the usual amenities are within easy reach such as hospitals, schools, and shopping centres. If you don’t work in the CBD, then Sutherland Shire has everything you need to live a good life, with no need to ever set foot in the city.
Now that we’ve got you excited about living the quiet life you’ve been craving, it’s time to get set up with a team of local professionals who can help with your transition.
Engage a Sutherland Shire real estate agent
You want to make sure you get your foot in the door with all the best real estate deals, and to do that you are going to need a local Sutherland Shire real estate agent.
Preferably, you want a Sutherland Shire real estate agent who lives in or very close to the area. This way you can be sure they know every little secret an area has; secrets which aren’t readily apparent to a real estate agent who comes from more than a few suburbs away.
Get finance help with a Sutherland Shire mortgage broker
Setting yourself up with a good mortgage broker is the key to getting the best finance deals. Sutherland Shire mortgage brokers deal directly with financial institutions. As an incentive for a mortgage broker to send more customers their way, these institutions are often prepared to cut a deal.
A good local mortgage broker can speed up your application by helping you with the process, and the better ones will pass on any savings they get from the financial institutions straight through to you.
Get to know your Sutherland Shire tradies
Moving to a new area means you must leave your trusted tradies behind. A new location always means you will need something done, whether that be a new GPO in the laundry, a deadlock on the back door, or a fresh coat of paint in the living room. You’ll need to establish new local trade connections with Sutherland shire plumbers, electricians, locksmiths and more.
