The Hunter Valley has long been known for its wineries, award-winning restaurants, National Parks, historic townships, impressive employment opportunities – such as mining, agriculture and hospitality – so there’s no surprise that it’s a sought-after property market too.
Developments are driving increased demand
Development opportunities in the Hunter Valley have increased due to improved access, such as with the opening of the Hunter Expressway. No longer do you need to work in the Hunter Valley to live there. This improved access to employment in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, means more people can take advantage of the value and lifestyle available in this rural hotspot.
The attraction is also increased due to a host of residential developments currently underway. One of the more substantial ones is Huntlee, situated near Branxton. More than a new estate, Huntlee promises to be a new community and is the Hunter Valley’s first new town in around 50 years. So as the region progresses so too does the likelihood of a new home turning over a profit or seeing an increase in value relatively quickly.
The top three drivers for new house builds in the Hunter Valley are:
- You already own land in the Hunter Valley and are looking to subdivide for dual occupancy or build a duplex to increase your property’s capital and create an income boost.
- You want to build a new home on a large rural acreage to experience a more relaxed lifestyle, while still enjoying easy access to the city of Newcastle and your place of work.
- You simply want to take advantage of the great value land available in one of the many new developments, to provide you and your family a lifestyle that may be out of reach in the city.
If this sounds like you, then it’s time to hunt out a quality local builder
There are many local homebuilders who will be able to build your new house, but by selecting a professional, well-established builder, such as Jones Homes, you will ensure costs are kept in check and everything runs smoothly. A reputable homebuilder will have a dedicated team and trusted contractors, including designers, surveyors, builders and planners, plus access to the region’s leading architects. Plus, everything is handled for you and the price is much more transparent – often with fixed price guarantees. Most importantly you aren’t tied to a set floor plan. Custom design services provide you with the added freedom of getting exactly what you want built on your prized piece of land.
