Where to Retire in Australia - Extract from Chapter 1 -
This is an extract from Chapter 1….
'Australia has more dream retirement locations to offer than any other country in the Southern Hemisphere, perhaps in the world.
One of the mistakes we saw repeated many times as to move to a place where real estate prices do not keep up with capital city price inflation, and then ten years later try to return to a capital city. The motive for returning to a city is often the need for specialist medical care, or to be close to family and friends. This scenario is becoming knowns as ‘buying a poverty package’.
The second mistake to avoid is moving too many times. We met a couple on the New South Wales coast who had originally retired from Melbourne to Port Douglas in Tropical North Queensland. Port Douglas proved to be unbearably hot and humid for them, so they moved to Port Macquarie, but frankly only one of them fitted into the local community. The couple now live in Merimbula. The estimated extra costs of buying and selling three homes, the legal fees, stamp duty and relocation have left this couple $85,000 worse off. Making a poor choice of your retirement destination can be expensive.
This book is about finding a piece of paradise in the countryside or by the sea. The book is about lifestyle, and it is all about planning. Successful retirees do their research, and they develop a plan.
Australia has a lot to offer. Happy hunting, and enjoy your retirement.
