Australians have traditionally had an attraction to the ocean and everything that it represents. This has spread to include a need to live near the ocean, and has resulted in a huge proportion of our coastline being developed and a huge proportion of our population living near the beach. Beachfront homes are very difficult to come by, and can be expensive. However, they are worth every cent you might spend on them. Here are six reasons why you should buy a beachfront home:
It will never lose value!
Beachfront homes will basically never lose value. As Australia’s population grows more and more people are going to want to live near the ocean, boosting the price of your new property. Think of it as an investment: you will be able to sell it again for at least the amount that you paid, and probably for a lot more!
You will be able to walk on the beach every morning:
Think about that. Every time you want to go for a walk on the beach, you will simply have to step out the door. This is extremely attractive to many people, and is one of the reasons why beachfront homes are in such high-demand.
You can rent it out as a holiday home if you wish:
People will pay a fortune to stay in a home near the beach. This means that you will be able to rent it out for a much higher price than you usually would if living inland, resulting in a high return on your initial investment.
You can learn to surf:
Or dive. Or swim. Or basically anything you want! Having a beachfront home will open up endless possibilities for you to learn new things and take up new hobbies, while not paying a lot to rent a holiday home or in petrol to drive to the beach.
Watch the sun rise (or set) over the ocean every single day:
Turn your life into one big holiday by watching the sunset or sunrise (depending which way your house faces) over the ocean every single day.
You will be able to go fishing as often as you want:
If you enjoy fishing then you will love this fact. You will never have to drive a long way to go fishing again. Relax on the beach in front of your house with a beer and your fishing rod while you catch a feed of fish for dinner!
