INVESTOR INTEREST IN RIPLEY
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.
