House Hunting: Bathurst Region

Saw this house last night in Abercrombie NSW, just North West of Bathurst. Priced reasonably and has fiber to the premise NBN. A 3 bedroom brick house about 3 years old and appears to be in a fairly new residential estate. As there are people at work with past experiences in Bathurst, I decided to ask around for opinions.

Check for flooding!

Knowing where Councils put this information is handy. Went straight to the LEP and sourced the information from the NSW legislation website.

Based on the 1998 flood this property will periodically get water views! The chances are low but still a risk! Then again the risk of unemployment is likely greater than any maximum flood in the area!

Bathurst gives me hope as a first home buyer. Sydney not so much.
