First National Real Estate will continue its support of the Victorian State Government’s Regional Victoria Living Expo, which is expected to draw even larger crowds than it did in 2013.

The network will showcase properties at the Expo but will also have representative members on hand to answer questions about lifestyle and real estate throughout regional Victoria.

“Last year, the second Expo attracted almost 9,500 people, up 15 per cent on the 2012 attendance, and based on the feedback we have been receiving this year we think even more people will visit the 2014 Expo,” said First National Real Estate Chief Executive, Ray Ellis.

“First National Real Estate was kept very busy, following last year’s event, helping Melburnians wanting to escape to regional Victoria find the ideal home. We’ve helped quite a few people achieve their dream in the past 12 months.”

This year, First National Real Estate has unveiled a new National Website in support of the Expo that answers the common questions Melburnians ask when considering a move to the country.

“People immediately identify with the advice section of our new National Website. It answers all the types of questions people ask our agents when they’re considering a regional move” said Mr Ellis.

“If you’re thinking about moving to the country to retire, your questions are quite different from a family thinking of moving to the regions for a better lifestyle but needing employment. We know lots of people wonder about low maintenance weekenders and then there are those who see themselves generating an income off the land. Whatever the motivation, people can start researching their move on our website right now, before they visit our booth at the Expo in April”.

“We’re recommending people visit and then follow the links on the home page. They’ll find a huge variety of valuable information about how to move to the country, what sorts of challenges they might face, how to find employment, guidelines for choosing a property and plenty more.”

The Regional Victoria Living Expo sponsored by First National Real Estate returns to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 11-13 April 2014, showcasing the outstanding opportunities available in regional and rural Victoria.
