IN­VESTOR IN­TER­EST IN RI­P­LEY

The Courier-Mail - Home - - TERRACE HOMES - BELINDA CHILTON

A search of South East Queens­land for the per­fect in­vest­ment prop­erty has led this cou­ple to pur­chase a ter­race home in Ecco Ri­p­ley.

Daniel and Gay Bax­ter said the chance to se­cure an af­ford­able, new, in­vest­ment home in the Ri­p­ley Val­ley re­gion was too good to re­sist.

“We had searched ev­ery­where for the per­fect in­vest­ment, from Mooloolaba through to Ip­swich but noth­ing felt right,” Mr Bax­ter said.

“When we’re search­ing for an in­vest­ment prop­erty, it needs to be some­where we can see our­selves liv­ing and that’s why we de­cided to pur­chase at Ecco Ri­p­ley.

“We loved ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing about the prod­uct and pur­chased a ter­race home im­me­di­ately af­ter view­ing the prod­uct for the first time.” The Ip­swich cou­ple live in a nearby de­vel­op­ment.

The col­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary two and three-bed­room homes de­signed and built ex­clu­sively by Sek­isui House, have been pop­u­lar with owner-oc­cu­piers who ac­count for 67 per cent of sales so far.

Mr Bax­ter said the fact The Ter­races had no body cor­po­rate fees was a ma­jor draw­card for the cou­ple. They also have a fixed-price con­tract, with a $2000 de­posit and bal­ance payable on com­ple­tion.

“Small fees add up, so it was great this home had no body cor­po­rate fees which di­min­ished our over­all costs,” he said. Within two days of con­tract­ing a real es­tate agent to rent the prop­erty, the Bax­ters had four ten­ant ap­pli­ca­tions and are in the process of choos­ing the right one.

“We are pleas­antly sur­prised by how quick and easy the en­tire process was,” Mr Bax­ter said. “From deal­ing with Sek­isui House through to find­ing ap­pro­pri­ate tenants, the whole pro­ce­dure was seam­less and trou­ble-free.”

The Ter­races sit in an el­e­vated po­si­tion and are close to lo­cal parks and the fu­ture $1.5 bil­lion Ri­p­ley Town Cen­tre.

Con­tem­po­rary two and three-bed­room ter­race homes by Sek­isui House in Ecco Ri­p­ley have been pop­u­lar with owner-oc­cu­piers.
