Bedrooms

 

Style of Property

 

Land Size

 

Budget

 

Timeframe

 

Priorities (Privacy, heating, north facing)

 

Work to be done on house OK?

 

Utilities (NBN, town water etc)

 

Hobbies/work to be accommodated?

Many houses in the Highlands are sold off-market, meaning they are sold before they reach the internet sites, so ring around all of the agents and check if there is anything they may have of interest to you.

Make sure to check the zoning of your potential property here: https://www.planningportal.nsw.gov.au/find-property-or-council-area. It is also worth checking the nearby area to check there are no zonings that could mean a major disruption in the future.
