How To Choose Your Perfect Lifestyle In Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs

We’ve relaunched our website and turned the property search inside out, so home buyers can experience a new property journey through the four key lifestyles available in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.

When buyers look for a property, in our experience their search criteria includes so much more than bricks and mortar.

In fact, sometimes the property is second to many other lifestyle factors - like the area, the street, the proximity to a particular beach, park, pool, school, work, transport or other amenities.

In other words, lifestyle really matters. If you get these lifestyle fundamentals right in your property search, the rest can fall into place.

Changing the way buyers search for property

One of the most appealing things about buying property in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs is the sheer variety of lifestyle choices on offer – from Vaucluse and Point Piper’s beautiful harbour views to buzzy inner-city areas such as Surry Hills, Potts Point and Darlinghurst or the laid-back beach lifestyle of Bondi, Bronte and Coogee, or the parkside appeal of Paddington and Woollahra.

Whether you want to live by the beach, be in the heart of the city, surround yourself with leafy green parks or wake up to spectacular harbour views, there’s something to suit every lifestyle in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.

So we’ve turned the property search inside out and made lifestyle the starting point. We invite you to visit our new website, bencollierteam.com.au, and explore all of the lifestyles on offer to find the property that suits you best.
