Buying Property

Where Should I Buy In The Illawarra And What To Look For?

If you are a newcomer to the Illawarra you may not know where to start.

Largely most potential buyer have visited the area on holidays at some stage in their life and the urban squeeze has seen buyers looking for a lifestyle change. A big feeder for the Illawarra is the southern parts of Sydney. They usually start looking in the more well-known areas like ‘Thirroul’ or ‘Austinmer’ but usually price and facilities are the most important factor on the suburb of choice.

If you are looking to get away from the rat race and be secluded amongst the trees but close to Sydney try Wombarra.

Looking for farm land try a little known suburb called Yellow Rock.

Apartment in city, well Wollongong CBD.

Price conscious? Albion Park and Unanderra.

Affordability with access to the CBD, try Figtree, West Wollongong and Mount St Thomas.

Water without the price tag. Oak Flats and Windang but be your thing around the lake

Village lifestyle Thirroul and Balgownie are two of the more popular villages.

Drive to Sydney a lot? Suburbs with great arterial road access are the lesser known but equally pretty Mount Ousley and Bulli.

A suburb on the popularity rise with young families is Russell Value.

Corrimal bit of everything. Shops beach schools,

Want to build? New home build options Horsley, Avondale, Tullimbar.

Like the green rolling hills and pastures instead of the beaches or escarpment try the southern town of Jamberoo.

Hope that helps expand your search to some lesser known areas in the Illawarra.
