Are there any guidelines for choosing a weekender property?

Naturally, people seek a wide variety of different types of weekender property. Depending on your ultimate goal, consider things like…
  • Size of acreage – farm, horses, agriculture or simple lifestyle pursuits
  • Taxes applicable based on land size – could land tax be applicable?
  • Neighbours – their land use, animals, recreational pursuits etc.
  • Type and size of house – classic homestead or modern home
  • Water availability and quality – bore water is often available but will it be potable?
  • Fences – want livestock or pets? Fencing is costly so bear that in mind. Rabbit proof fences are necessary to protect vegetable patches and young plantings
