Hey all whats doing? Decided its time to buy a house as an investment, with a view to moving to it in oh, lets say 10 years? Fact is ive got no roots down anywhere - not to say i wont in 10 years of course but for now i can buy anywhere i want. Sky is the limit up to around half a mil, and ideally looking for a 4br with some space around me - 2000sqm would be about perfect. Ive really only a few requirements which i can sum up easily: Beach not too far away (30min drive is acceptable); easy access to transport (ie, decent regular flight airport); some reasonable local job prospects (ie so i can get the place rented out in the meantime, and maybe something simple for me to relax into after working the big hours lifestyle). Any suggestions on places to look? About the most attractive option so far is Tasmania... probably Devonport... but ive no idea what its like to actually live there (and i imagine the beaches arent that good ). Suggestions, comments, general crap that stops you otherwise working are quite welcome!
