    Hey Guys

    My wife and i are looking at relocating south in the next couple years. Just curious for peoples opinions on location along the coast or a bit inland. I drive trucks so finding work wouldn't hard to find.
    Im looking south of nowra.

    Thanks guys

    Ryan

    I spend a lot of time on the south coast (particularly around the South Nowra/Ulladulla area). Aesthetically South Nowra is a s@*thole! Perfectly suited to ice addicts and dealers, stolen cars, and deadbeats, of which there are plenty around. Areas around Berry, Gerrora, Milton, Mollymook, and Ulladulla are beautiful. There are pockets of scum there too however much less than Nowra.

    Spend some time getting to know these areas to find the one that appeals.

    Good luck Ryan.

    @Ryno howdy, there are heaps of options it really depends what your wish list is. I made the move out of Sydney about 8yrs ago and don't regret it one little bit. As mentioned above the south eastern quarter of Nowra has pockets of public housing over 80% which creates a concentrated set of social issues but Nowra as a town actually has a lot of money, and pride. West and North sides are generally best. I just helped a couple from inner west of Sydney relocate, they had to work out where they wanted to be and then get a place (for them it ended up being Berry) with a specific set of lifestyle goals and before that it was a FIFO worker who ended up on the headland with water views in Ulladulla. Do your research and set your priority list you won't regret it. Do you want acreage or coastal or something else? Walk to beach or water views? Cheap with development profit potential or zero maintenance? Choosing these criteria first helps the process go smoother. Make sure you know your prices to there is such a wide range of asking prices some owners are dreaming and others a very realistic. Bushfire, Flood, Termite, & Biodiversity issues all need to be considered too. Best of luck!

    Good point @Azazel no need for multiple threads, discussion can probably all be covered on the other one.

    Hi Ryan,

    I was in a similar position to you a couple of years ago. Have you considered further down the coast in the Eurobodalla/Bega Valley areas? Far more quite coastal towns without the year round traffic you get down to Milton/Ulladulla. Empty beaches in the middle of summer....yes please.

    I'm now camping at the Killalea State Park. Warilla is close to the amenities. Should I have also have a look at barrack Heights in my way back to Sydney?

    @Chilliblue @Azazel I liked the areas like warilla, shellharbour and even windang based on the beaches. People will out in force on Australia Day. Worth looking into the areas...but probably a little late.

    Touristy places always look good in peak season. People start to think about buying there without an idea of what the market's doing.
    You have the benefit of being able to do some decent research to find the places where there are still some good buys, instead of using emotion.

    No. Didn't think it necessary at that stage.

    Not a bad little patch to check out @larrylarry - B/H and Mt W are tightly held at the moment so it really depends if you can get in for sensible buy in prices. There is some quality and some poor stock around. The agents also vary quite a bit in style and quality ;)

    Thanks for the tip Matt. Research takes time and DD is a must as I'm in Sydney.
