This new home range is a chance for the younger gen­er­a­tion to achieve the “great Aus­tralian dream”.

AVID Prop­erty Group is of­fer­ing a new style of home at its Brent­wood For­est de­vel­op­ment in Bell­bird Park, aimed at help­ing the youth­ful greater Spring­field pop­u­la­tion en­ter the hous­ing mar­ket. With na­tional house prices in­creas­ing nearly 20 per cent over the last five years, and house­hold in­comes only ris­ing by around 9.2 per cent (Core Logic’s 2016 Hous­ing Af­ford­abil­ity Re­port), the at­tain­abil­ity of home own­er­ship is in ques­tion for many young peo­ple.

AVID Prop­erty Group gen­eral man­ager Queens­land Bruce Harper said Brent­wood For­est’s Tempo Liv­ing homes of­fered an af­ford­able yet stylish en­try point for first home buy­ers on the prop­erty lad­der.

“Lots of young buy­ers strug­gle to get into the hous­ing mar­ket, and they’re of­ten forced into older ‘fixer-up­pers’ that suit their bud­get but not their tastes,” Mr Harper said.

“The Tempo Liv­ing range of­fers first home buy­ers the chance to step into a brand new home, with­out the has­sle of com­pli­cated builds or ren­o­va­tions.”

Re­cent Cen­sus data shows the me­dian age in Ip­swich is 32, lower than the na­tional me­dian of 37. “Greater Spring­field’s young, grow­ing pop­u­la­tion needs hous­ing that re­ally re­flects their life­style, and the sort of qual­ity, so­phis­ti­cated de­sign that young peo­ple have come to ex­pect in a home,” Mr Harper said.

“The Tempo Liv­ing homes suit peo­ple who are look­ing for an easy to main­tain home with­out the has­sle of lots of yard main­te­nance.

“They are a great en­try point into the hous­ing mar­ket, with­out buy­ers hav­ing to com­pro­mise on de­sign or lo­ca­tion.”

Tempo Liv­ing dis­play homes are now open at Brent­wood For­est.

Tempo Liv­ing home­buyer David Lowe said the homes were an af­ford­able, free­hold op­tion, close to a range of ameni­ties.
