BUY­ERS ON THE MOVE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - COASTAL WAVE | BEAUTIFUL BUDERIM - BELINDA CHILTON

A re­turn wave of in­ter­state buy­ers has prompted the re­lease of an­other par­cel of land in the Sun­shine Coast’s mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity at Palmview, Har­mony.

AVID Prop­erty Group gen­eral man­ager Queens­land Bruce Harper said Har­mony was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the be­gin­ning of a re­turn wave of in­ter­state buy­ers, which had trig­gered the re­lease of Pros­per­ity 3A.

“When Syd­ney and Mel­bourne house prices reach a cer­tain price point dif­fer­ence, it trig­gers a move­ment of peo­ple from New South Wales and Vic­to­ria to sell up to take ad­van­tage of the cheaper Queens­land prices – not to men­tion the re­laxed life­style and warmer cli­mate,” Mr Harper said. “For seven years, that wave had re­ceded, but now house price dif­fer­en­tials are at an all-time high and there are signs that the north­ern march of in­ter­state mi­grants is start­ing to move again. South East Queens­land is on the cusp of an in­ter­state mi­gra­tion up­swing that will boost the economy.”

Pros­per­ity 3A will add 54 land lots to the Har­mony com­mu­nity with lots rang­ing from 250sq m to 781sq m with prices start­ing at $219,400

On com­ple­tion, Har­mony will de­liver more than 4800 homes for a po­ten­tial 12,000 res­i­dents, with 100ha of open space.

There will be a large Town Cen­tre, with shop­ping, din­ing and other leisure ac­tiv­i­ties.

Lo­cal builders Thomp­son Sus­tain­able Homes are among a line-up of 25 na­tional and lo­cal builders who will be part of the $3 billion mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity in Palmview.

Thomp­son Sus­tain­able Homes di­rec­tor Brad Thomp­son said the com­pany had de­signed a range of low and high­set ter­race homes to tap into the de­mand for sus­tain­able hous­ing on the coast.

“Our ter­race homes em­brace the Queens­land weather with the in­ter­nal lay­out de­signed to cre­ate air­flow and breeze­ways, de­creas­ing the need for air­con­di­tion­ing,” Mr Thomp­son said.

Thomp­son Sus­tain­able De­sign is tak­ing its in­no­va­tive de­signs to Har­mony at Palmview on the Sun­shine Coast.
