BUYERS ON THE MOVE
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.
