About Sandy Bay:
With a current median price for 4 bedroom houses at $1,575,000 Sandy Bay (Sep 2022 – Aug 2023) is well regarded as one of Tasmania’s most premiere suburbs with easy access to Hobart’s CBD and world-famous Salamanca, it is home to Nutgrove Beach, Wrest Point Casino and great local shopping, trendy cafes and excellent schools.

With over $28 billion worth of infrastructure projects in the pipeline over the next decade in Tasmania (not including government housing projects), Hobart remains a solid city to be investing in with migration levels back to pre-pandemic levels and population growth with around 25,000 additional residents recorded in the last census. Demand is currently high, rental yields are great, and stock levels of quality homes low. We encourage you to get in quick on this opportunity.
