Revealing the value

With the restrictions in place around Sydney at the moment we are focused more than ever before on what lies within our local communities. Perhaps a silver lining of lockdown is that we’re all coming to appreciate the gems we might not otherwise have discovered in our local area. It’s in times like these we see the true value of community but surprisingly it is often undervalued in terms of residential real estate.
