Howick: Land and tourism among local draws
Availability of land
There are large tracts in and around the town available for development, offering investors the opportunity to bring new products to the market in line with demand.
Older buildings available for redevelopment
Already a feature of Howick, several of the older buildings are ripe for redevelopment and re-purposing. There is a trend to convert older houses into business premises, but retain the essence of the area’s colonial Victorian architecture.
The proximity of Howick to the Midlands Meander provides investors with market opportunities beyond local residents. Day-trippers and short-stay venturers into the Midlands Meander can typically pass through Howick to wander through its local shops, relish a leisurely lunch and take in the Howick Falls waterfall.
Quieter country lifestyle
There are countless benefits to a slower pace of living inherent in residing in smaller country towns.
Opportunities to supply goods and services to the broader farming community around Howick
Howick is much more than simply the town. There are vast commercial farming ventures on its doorstep, which means investors who are looking for new commercial opportunities can take in a broader market scope when calculating potential returns on investment.
