What to buy
Land size and location are the only two parts of a property that cannot be changed long-term so my advice to families looking to move to Turramurra is to always pursue properties that are desirable to them and on above average land size.
Appeal for buyers
Turramurra offers a wide variety of parks, cafes and bush walks that are highly sought after by families. Proximity to the city, elite schooling and the leafy (outlook) also attract buyers. The close knit communities and quality homes and streets, which many families have aspirations of moving to, are part of the appeal.
People buy for different reasons. Some Buyers will knock down old homes and build new ones to live in or for profit. Others will modernise existing homes, extend or landscape, hold properties for children or lease them out for additional income.
