Australians dream of beach property

By webmaster 20 January 2011 | 1 minute read

Nearly 60 per cent of people would make sure their second home was at the beach, according to a new poll.

The poll by PRDnationwide also found that 22 per cent of Australians would prefer a CBD apartment, while 16 per cent would like a ski property as their second home.

PRDnationwide research director Aaron Maskrey said respondents would prefer the second property to be in their own state, with only 4 per cent interested in an interstate property.

“If someone can afford a holiday home, they don’t want to have to travel too long to get there,” he said.

“While in the current economic environment a second property is not possible for some people, a property at the beach is still on the wish list,” he said.


“A lot of these coastal properties have seen price discounts – so owning a beach house might become a reality for more people in 2011,” he said.

Mr Maskrey said only 1 per cent of those surveyed would choose a rural property as a second getaway.

2000 home owners and investors were polled for the survey.
