There have been a large amount of young families that have been seeking to buy property and become homeowners. According to a recent article by The Australian, most potential homeowners stated that the condition of the home for sale isn't as important as its proximity to good schools. The most common decision factors for potential home buyers consist of having a a great location for school, work and transportation.
Unfortunately for some new homeowners they have to compromise on space and extra amenities in order to have that perfect location at an affordable budget. For this reason, many seek to use self-storage places such as Taxibox in order to put away items that won't fit into their home but are still of necessity.
It's easier for the home buyer to find a home that's in relatively good condition and remodel it to fits their needs. Some experts speculate that home sellers could be wasting money on fixing up their properties because most people are now interested in making over their new home themselves. The lists of “must haves” from buyers have changed in priority, putting the location first.
Australian women have been more vocal about the type of schools that are located near their homes. However, men that reside in capital cities stated that proximity to the CBD was their determining factor for home ownership. Most young adults wanted to be close to the city, respondents between the age of 25 to 44 stated car parking and public transport were important and those over 45 chose proximity to schools.
