Welcome to our Winter Wonderland

The temperature gauge might be sitting below zero and there might be ice on your car, but the appeal of a country lifestyle has never looked better.

Kyneton during its coldest months really becomes a winter wonderland and if you can brave the early morning chill, the sunshine after the frost has melted is simply spectacular.

People working from home due to COVID restrictions are starting to see the benefits country living can provide and judging by the amount of weekend day-trippers to Kyneton over the past month you can see there is a lot of interest from city-dwellers when it comes to a change in lifestyle and home environment.

Winter is one of my favourite seasons to both buy and sell property. The curated selection of homes available during winter varies to its popular spring neighbour. It’s also the best time of year to check whether your potential new home is warm enough to brave even the coldest months.

With the Government’s new announcements of the $25,000 HomeBuilder and the $20,000 first home buyer grant, Victoria’s regional centres are expecting a boost in population this winter.

We will start to see a spike in the region with these grants and the rise in the ability to work from home provides more of an opportunity for many city-dwellers seeking a tree change. The appeal of selling a city house to move to a regional location and become, possibly, mortgage free is a dream for many and will be enough to get a lot of people over the line to make this change during COVID times.

For potential buyers or those wanting to sell, winter is a wonderland in Kyneton and now, more than ever, we have an audience coming to Kyneton looking for new opportunities that could come knocking on your wonderful doorstep.
