What’s The Most In Demand Suburb In Launceston?
“A rise in the “gig-economy”, alongside the proliferation of online-only jobs, means the geographical distance of Tasmania from the mainland is not restricting employment for a new generation of workers”.
Whilst Hobart is at the top of the National media’s attention presently, secretly Launceston has caught the sails of Hobart’s gusts without the hype.
The above statement by realestate.com.au Chief Economist, Nerida Conisbee, is correct and we’re seeing this in droves within the Launceston community with interstate buyers calling Launceston and it’s surrounding regions such as the Tamar Valley, Northern Midlands as home whilst their jobs are providing the benefit of working online from home, or flying in and out through Launceston to Melbourne or Sydney (TBH it’s quicker to fly to work from Launceston than travelling by car in some cases whilst living in Sydney or Melbourne… #gridlock)
And whilst this seems to be happening more often than not, don’t be surprised to see City of Launceston Official in the news over the coming 12-24 months once the University of Tasmania and other major capital projects get underway. With the launch of new large-scale projects always pricks to ears of astute buyers and investors who are looking for buoyant activity and a better lifestyle. Suburbs such as Launceston, Invermay, South Launceston and Newnham should be seen as sleepers due to the undervalued location and growth potential.
