How to buy a property in Hobart and Tasmania?

How to buy a property in Hobart and Tasmania?

Tasmania focused heavily on keeping Covid out during the pandemic. As a result, people either moved back here or moved here. That put pressure on the housing market and resulted in unprecedented price rises.  From being on the cheaper end of the scale, Hobart housing prices surged past some other states.

Prices are now coming down, a trend predicted to continue during 2024.  At the end of January 2024, the median house price in Hobart was $713,061 (-1.6% on December 2022).  Units were $521,001 (-2.0% on the previous month).  Regional house prices were also down by 1.1% and sitting at $506,293.

What are the pros and cons of moving to Hobart and Tasmania?

Pros and cons of living in Hobart and Tasmania?

Tasmania, and Hobart, offer a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and a big country town feel.  The state is a popular retirement destination for these very reasons (pro).  Yet others can’t wait to shake the Tasmanian dust from their feet (for the same reasons – con).

Admittedly, with only around 573,000 people living on an island that measures just 90,758 sq kms, life in ‘Tassie’ may seem a bit like ‘fishbowl living’ at times.  That’s a con for some whilst others like the neighbourly ‘sharing is caring’ feel it engenders.  And Tasmanians on the whole are a very friendly, caring, and welcoming bunch.

The state is also renowned for its fresh food.  Nowhere in Tasmania is too far from anywhere else, which means fresh local produce can reach the markets still fresh.  And, with fewer cars on the road, traffic snarls are less of an issue in Hobart than they are in other capital cities.

As for scenery – there are few places in Australia that rival Tasmania for spectacular scenery!  Some of Australia’s last vestiges of ‘truly wild’ can be found here. Much of it is still pristine too.

However – Tasmania’s weather can be iffy, especially in the south of the state where it gets very (very) cold and wet in winter.  Summers though are mild and balmy, part of the reason people head here for retirement.

If you are considering moving to Tasmania, employment opportunities are limited so line up a job before you move here.  Or consider working remotely.  There’s also not a lot of nightlife and entertainment options can be sparse as well.hat
