How to buy a house with an Australian travel agency
Posted On July 12, 2021
Travellers, who are often under pressure to find affordable places to live in Sydney, have been struggling to find a good deal.
A new report from real estate agency Beaumont Travel Agency (BTAA) has revealed that Australians are being forced to shell out huge sums for luxury properties.
“The big trend right now is for Australians to find ways to maximise their income, and the average household income has gone up by more than 50 per cent,” BTAA managing director Tony Fagan said.
“You can’t just live on a $200,000 or $300,000 budget.
You need to be doing things to get that money out.”
He said that, for many people, the cost of living in Australia has gone way up, making it more difficult to buy the best deal.
“We think there is a lot of pressure being put on people, particularly young people, to be able to save money and put it towards their dream home,” he said.
This year, more than 5,000 Australians aged 18-24 bought their first home overseas, and almost one in 10 of those bought with a business.AAP/ABC
