So, you’re thinking of moving to the Inner West? Great choice! But what does it really mean to be an “Inner Westie” – and should you be worried?
The question is worth asking, because Inner West lifestyle is bustling, eclectic, and bursting with energy: if you’re looking for a quiet retreat, this may not be for you.
Forget the stereotypes, because there is nothing ‘typical’ about the natives of Sydney’s inner west region, although you’ll definitely find a shared interest in:
- Coffee! And More Coffee!
- Delicious, abundant cuisine
- Boutique beers and small bars
- Fashion, style and glamour
- Professions, and property!
And, yes, it’s true, the Inner Westie does lean towards expressive professions, bohemian pursuits, interests in sustainable urban living, and celebrating creativity: art, music, comedy, festivals and community.
One of the reasons why Sydney’s inner west property continues to be in such demand is that the people who live there, tend to stay. The sense of community is very strong, and so rather than leaving when the kids arrive, we’re seeing a distinct shift in demographics with younger families, and residences being upgraded or capital released by downsizing.
Sometimes, the best way to know if a place is right for you is to talk to someone who has lived, worked and raised a family in the area. We like nothing more than to share our love of the area and our in-depth knowledge of the property market here.
