Sharon and Gus Keech are making the most of falling property prices, low clearance rates and sparsely attended open house days by taking their time buying a new home closer to Sydney.
The parents of Lachie, 14, and Mia, 11, want to replace their six-bedroom Bayview home, which is about 34 kilometres north of Sydney, for a location about 25 kilometres closer, probably around Mosman.
"We don't plan to compromise too much on the house to improve the amenity - by being closer to Sydney and still having blue [ocean] views," Ms Keech said.
The couple, who run Touchpoint Global, an IT company specialising in airline logistics, believe the cooling Sydney property market has made finding the right property cheaper, less competitive and easier to negotiate the right price.
