Contemplating a sea change? Then you should spend some time down the Bellarine Peninsula, Ocean Grove in particular. It’s a beautiful coastal town with a huge amount of growth and plenty of infrastructure on the expanding suburb.
Between swimming, surfing and fishing, you can expect to enjoy good food and a good life. Clean sea air and amazing locals, OG has a lot to offer anyone planning to make a move. The best part about it is that it is in growth stage. The suburb posted the highest amount of sales on the Bellarine last year and the growth in price has seen a steady rise over this past cycle.
You should feel comfortable with your investment, financial and lifestyle. There are some amazing architectural homes throughout and plenty of older places ready for a facelift. The days on market across the board are not over extended and the market acts more like a city market than a coastal/country market.
Bridging the gap between Melbourne, there have been a lot of people opting for the sea change and utilising the ferry from Portarlington, the train from Marshalltown or the one and a half hour drive to CBD (with normal traffic). Though Geelong is only thirty minutes away and offers a different paced work life and plenty of opportunities.
It’s well worth a look next time you think of going for a drive. Head on down one Saturday, look through some open for inspections and see what you think.
