The Melbourne downsizers buying city properties to suit their beach lifestyle

Buyers and sellers advocate Wendy Chamberlain from Chamberlain Property Advocates has spoken to Domain regarding what is currently on Melbourne downsizers’ wish list.

Downsizers are selling their family home to buy city property and enjoy beach lifestyle“I think there is a definite trend of downsizers buying a low-maintenance city base in Melbourne that offers them quick and easy access to freeways to escape down the coast as they please. They know the timings necessary to leave by to miss the peak traffic times,”

“Ease of access to the M1 was paramount, as was being able to jump on a tram to catch a show in the city. The property needed to be new or fully renovated with minimal upkeep required so they could lock up and leave as needed,”

“Location and convenience are top of the downsizer shopping list, so suburbs on the CBD doorstep and inner south and south east are hugely popular, especially leafy suburbs neighbouring the M1 and Princes Highway,” Chamberlain says.

“The beach property needs to offer the lifestyle the city property does not – space and a slower pace. These homes tend to be bigger and cater to accommodating the whole family for Christmas celebrations and special occasions.”
