Moving from Sydney to Brisbane

Looking to move north to Brisbane for warmer weather and a relaxing life style? It is no secret that Sydney can be crowded and busy, with traffic delays, constant development and expensive real estate in many areas.

We are seeing a large trend over the past few years of Sydney-siders moving north looking for a better work / life balance. Brisbane’s proximity means it is only an hour flight if you wish to visit relatives and friends the change of lifestyle will make you feel miles away.

What makes Brisbane so attractive?

For many Sydneysiders looking to slow down, Brisbane is the tropical destination that they look towards. Brisbane’s warmer climate and white sand beaches juxtaposed by the Brisbane CBD mean that people who live in Brisbane get to experience a relaxed coastal lifestyle whilst not giving up their careers as there is plenty of opportunity for career development.

Brisbane is less congested than Sydney and easier to get around, with good public transport systems, trendy cafes and restaurants alongside parks that offer an escape from the CBD and is chaos.

Housing affordability is another main attraction to Brisbane if you are moving from Sydney. If you do some research and look carefully there are some fantastic opportunities at present to get value for money should you be looking to buy your own home if selling up in Sydney.

Making the move from Sydney to Brisbane

There are many removalists that make the trek from Sydney to Brisbane. As with all service providers, it is important that you do your research on the reliability and reputation of those providers before taking a leap of faith and handing over your precious belongings to someone making the 900-kilometre journey north.

Your new home in Brisbane

Now that you have decided to move to Brisbane, there are plenty of things to start planning! What suburb will suit us best? Where are we looking to spend our weekends? Where would my ideal place of work be? How far will that be by car of public transport?

For those families moving to Brisbane with children, it is important to research schools, sporting clubs and other extra curricular activities that your children may be interested in and map these with relation to your location choice. This will help with understanding the distances between work, home and the other activities you will need to consider before moving to Brisbane.

Housing affordability will also play a factor in the size of home and suburb you are looking in. It may be a choice of opting for the same size home or upsizing and spending a little more to plan ahead for the future.

The properties around the city are very different to Sydney with the “Queenslander” style of home designed with heat circulation in mind. There are lovely homes on the river and traditional homes as you move to the outer suburbs that you would typically find in Sydney.
One thing is for sure in the summer – you will need an air conditioner to keep yourself cool!
