In the past, most of the properties sold in Port Macquarie were picked up by retirees, but a younger set tired of the daily grind is moving to its enclaves. The township is also proving to be a favourable investment destination for first time home buyers, thanks to their exemption from paying a stamp duty. As a result, the median home price of houses sold and real estate rentals in Port Macquarie have soared as demand continues to gain momentum.

Property owners looking to resell their property can profit from Port Macquarie’s rising value. Investors are not shying away from increasing prices, eager to take advantage of the township’s surprising growth. Some of them have already commenced new developments, or have just footed the bill for agricultural land newly opened by the government for rezoning.
