Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Wednesday, May 31, 2017
In the first few years we lived in the Huon Valley, we spotted a pattern. Each spring, the 'for sale' signs would go up along the Huon Highway, and when the temperatures dropped in autumn, they would be taken down again. It looked like the owners were hoping for a 'lottery win' sale to a passing tourist over the summer season, but weren't really serious about selling. During that time, prices were mostly flat. Properties took a long time to sell. Six to nine months would be good. Much like most regional areas, I expect.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
