"A visit to Tahmoor"

We had the pleasure of visiting Tahmoor today. We were in Tahmoor to inspect some properties as potential investments. At a glance, the town appears warm, thriving and welcoming. There are some central shops on Remembrance Driveway, a few fitness and sports grounds, a public school, and in the adjacent towns of Thirlmere and Picton police and medical facilities.
The majority of the real estate includes large blocks with homes from the mid 70’s and 80’s. Many appear to be in the process of receiving a face lift, and a few blocks appear to have new developments happening. After speaking with several real estate agents, we concluded that there appears to be a high demand for rental properties with vacancy rates at around 1-2 %.
Also, we learnt that there are some properties that have suffered damage due to a coal mine nearby. From what we could gather, there appears to be some geological shifts which have or could cause shifts in the structure of your home. That said, we were also advised that the mine has all damage to properties covered by insurance. There is information available to individuals who wish to learn more about this, simply ask one of the local real estate agents and they will direct you to the appropriate sources.
Additionally, there are some housing commission areas scattered throughout the region. After a good drive around the place, we were able to spot these locations and from what we could see there were only a few homes of this category. Most of the houses and properties appear to be well looked after and the main demographic appears to be retired professionals.
It is difficult to judge a community after only one day. However, our first impression of Tahmoor is of a small country town that is waiting to boom.
Pros
  • Quiet, peaceful, friendly
