New demographic analysis confirms that the trend of “better lifestyle migration” away from Capital Cities to the Mid North Coast continues.

Port Macquarie and the Hastings Valley remains one of the most desired locations for those seeking a more peaceful lifestyle, with a forecast 30% growth profile from 2016 to 2036 according to PMHC. This is against a backdrop of below forecast National Population Growth according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The real core driver is not only housing prices in capital cities which are no longer affordable for new home buyers, but existing home owners cashing up large capital gains on the sale of their urban homes, and buying into regional and rural locations.


We are receiving increasing enquiry from capital city and interstate buyers seeking to move to the Port Macquarie, Hastings and Mid-North Coast region.

In the mix of our recent property sales, the purchasers have come from varying out of area locations including Sydney, Southern Highlands, Central Coast, Brisbane, South Australia, and Northern Territory.

Over 85% of buyers now locate properties of interest by searching the internet.

At Regional & Rural we focus our marketing expertise and resources in creative and leading edge methodology to achieve the best possible results for our vendors and landlords.
