we are hoping to move out to NSW next summer, and have been considering our options for buying property. We are retired so won't have to consider a commute, but also will have a fixed budget because there will be no mortgage.
we originally thought we would like to settle in Kiama, which is an easy two hour train ride from our daughter in Sydney. However, prices in that area seem to be rocketing and if they continue we will no longer be able to afford it.
We we had originally dismissed the Central Coast as being too quiet, but the property prices round gosford are very appealing. It's no good getting more property for our money if there isn't much of a social hub there, so I'm wondering if anyone can give me a clue about life in and around Gosford/ Woywoy. Ideally we'd like to be on a train line because although we both drive we don't necessarily always want to ...
main in concern is the demographic - would we be likely to find other recent retirees or would we be out on a limb?
Thanks for all replies.
