Lifestyle, work and play are big attractions
Much to the surprise of many, property has boomed in the Shepparton region during COVID, but one property expert believes it was only a matter of time.
Combining the competitive price of house and land packages, larger blocks, wider streets, good infrastructure and great opportunities of employment in the Goulburn Valley, seasoned real estate agent, Glenn Young of Youngs & Co sees no letting up of the property boom.
“People from all areas are seeing Shepparton as a great place to live and invest. It’s a lifestyle decision and everyone from the city, and particularly since COVID, have realised they’re tired of cramped living and are moving to the region,” Glenn told Our Goulburn Valley magazine.
“Enquiries are coming from everywhere and as for blocks of land, they’re selling with a deposit, signing of the contract and waiting until the land is titled, which in some cases could be 12 months,” Glenn said.
“High on the list of what people are looking for when moving to the region is education,” Glenn, said. Plans for new schools in the region – and in particular the $50M school to be built in Verney Road, North Shepparton – will be great long term investments for the Goulburn Valley.
Youngs & Co are synonymous with property. Les and Glenn Young, along with Glenn’s wife Connie, who operates the Mooroopna office, have been at the forefront of property for two generations. Whether it’s residential, land, commercial, industrial, orchards and broad acre farms, they have sold many 1000s of properties since 1997, and many more when Les and Glenn Young traded under the name of Young & Rossignoli Real Estate.
