  • Raine & Horne Budgewoi Principals Wendy McLeod and Craig Favell are excited about returning to the fold
  • The northern Central Cost market is well placed to enjoy a very bright 2018

Budgewoi, NSW (18 January 2018) Raine & Horne office has launched an office in Budgewoi, giving home buyers and investors on the Coast fresh opportunities to achieve their property goals.

Wendy McLeod, Principal of Raine & Horne Budgewoi, brings 15 years of experience to the office. Formerly the proprietor of Coastline Real Estate, Wendy says she made the switch to Raine & Horne based on “the strength of the Raine & Horne brand, the superior technology available to Raine & Horne franchisees, and the welcoming family-feel of the Raine & Horne Group.”

“Raine & Horne has always enjoyed a very strong reputation on the Central Coast, so I felt the Superbrand was a natural fit for the Budgewoi and Lake Munmorah area.

“Early on in my real estate career I worked for Raine & Horne in this region and it feels great to be returning to the fold,” says Ms McLeod.

The ability to tap into Raine & Horne’s leading-edge technology was central to Ms McLeod’s decision to return to the fold.

“As an independent, my budget for technology is miniscule compared to what a major brand such as Raine & Horne is investing in the latest real estate innovations, which is a definite benefit for our vendors” said Ms McLeod.

“Working with my new business support and development manager (BDSM) Tina Ashton has been great. The head office team at Raine & Horne has been easy to work with. They have been consistent keeping up with us and their enthusiasm to bring us on board was impressive.”

Bright outlook for the Budgewoi market in 2018

Raine & Horne Budgewoi will service the northern end of the Central Coast with a focus on Budgewoi, Buff Point, Lake Munmorah, Chain Valley Bay, San Remo, Bluehaven, Gwandaland and Summerland Point.

“The northern Central Cost market is well placed to enjoy a very bright 2018,” said Ms McLeod.

“We are seeing a lot of high quality properties coming onto the market, and with prices plateauing, buying activity is gaining momentum and going from strength to strength.”

“The Lake Munmorah, Budgewoi and surrounds area is the Coast’s best kept secret,” adds Ms McLeod.

“There’s no congestion, every suburb is just a five-minute drive from the beach, and the region is still very affordable with quality 3-bedroom homes still under $500,000 mark.

“All this appeal means there’s every reason to expect today’s buyers will be rewarded with healthy price growth over the long term.”

Raine & Horne Budgewoi opens on 14 December 2017 and is located at 65a Scenic Drive, Budgewoi.
