Tired of the Melbourne hustle? Buy a regional home and set yourself up for life

Regional Victorian towns are looking increasingly attractive, luring young people in with their unique charms.

The affordability and amenities on offer are the two drawcards. When it comes to building a regional home, you’ll be able to afford more land and have room to splurge on the things you need to turn your build into your dream abode.

Regional towns are generally considered ‘growth areas’, so if you buy a home here your equity is more likely to grow. This might also help to secure a better bank valuation or finance approval.

Regional cities are no longer ‘one-pub towns’, where the post office, general store and sole restaurant all operate out of the same building. These regions are also home to indulgent fine dining and some of the world’s best restaurants; café culture has well and truly taken off alongside a taste for good wine and cocktails.

And if you ever want to head to Melbourne for a day trip, you’ll find newly-improved roads and streamlined public transport. Regional Victoria is building itself up to be a destination for first home buyers ready to start creating their take on the ‘Great Australian Dream’.

Luckily, there’s one place dedicated to helping prospective buyers get that first home feeling; Homebuyers Centre is ready to help you achieve future security in regional Victoria. They’re ready to pull you out of the rental cycle and get you into your dream home. And to do so, they’re offering a sweet deal of their own through their ‘Win a year’s worth of rent’ competition: $20,000 to help one lucky person get closer to their dream of home ownership.

Suddenly, you could be on your way to owning a home in Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo or amongst the lush countryside of Gippsland. Homebuyers Centre is the authority in first home buying. They’re specialists in getting you into your first home with ease, trust, and perhaps most importantly, affordability.

With Homebuyers Centre, you can own your own home in just three steps: Finance, Land and Home. They will help you sort out your cash to make sure you’re getting what you need and more, all within your budget. They’ll also hold your hand in finding the perfect piece of land for you to grow your life on. And finally, while helping you put a house on that land, they’ll provide you with enough choices to feel in control without becoming overwhelmed.

Part of Australia’s leading construction, property, and finance company, ABN Group, Homebuyers Centre has been delivering prodigious service for over 42 years. And if such experience doesn’t tell you anything, their anomalous warranties and guarantees will have you trusting Homebuyers Centre more than you can trust anyone else.

Homebuyers Centre offers a 12-month warranty service on your new home so you can experience all four seasons in your new abode.

Homebuyers Centre will help start a life in regional Victoria but if the pull of the big smoke remains, they’ve got you covered all across Melbourne. Through Wollert and Donnybrook – the popular suburbs in Melbourne’s north – Homebuyers Centre has also spread their wings into the south west as first home buyers become increasingly attracted to areas such as Tarneit, Werribee and Hoppers Crossing.

There’s no shortage of opportunities in the south east either with Homebuyers Centre offering house and land packages through Clyde, Officer and Berwick.

Each of these locations are providing affordable home ownership opportunities without compromising on the lifestyle and practicality of living inner city.

Whether you’re looking to hang your hat in regional Victoria or still have starry eyes for the big city, Homebuyers Centre has all the options to help you make a start. Soon enough, you could be enjoying a glass of red on your back porch breathing in the wistful air of your new abode. How good does that sound!?
