Wel­come to this week’s edi­tion of HOME.

Read­ers look to us for in­spi­ra­tion on their next prop­erty move and it’s proven in the num­bers, with con­sis­tent read­er­ship in­creases ev­ery month. The lat­est statis­tics are in, and

HOME’s read­er­ship has in­creased an­other 2.2 per cent in the past month.

Last week and this week, to­gether with the real es­tate sec­tion, we reached 120 pages - our big­gest mag­a­zine in two years, prov­ing we are show­cas­ing the best in the busi­ness.

Our mag­a­zine has ce­mented a place in your home, with reg­u­lar cover­age of new devel­op­ments, builds and de­sign - we con­tinue to grow and en­gage with you.

Buy­ing or build­ing a new home is an emo­tive and life­style-based jour­ney.

Feed­back from a re­cent read­ers’ sur­vey told us you seek trusted ad­vice from ex­perts to al­low you to be on the front foot of the Queens­land prop­erty mar­ket so your pur­chas­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is smooth.

In this edi­tion, we spoke to 26-yearold Josh Man­ion, who is call­ing on big busi­ness to do more to help first home buy­ers en­ter the mar­ket. His com­ments came of the back of a re­cent com­pe­ti­tion home builder Porter Davis ran, to give away a $50,000 first home de­posit. What Josh said was a great ini­tia­tive, sug­gest­ing more com­pa­nies should go the ex­tra mile to ease the pres­sure on buy­ing new.

With Mel­bourne Cup on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6, we spoke to a long-time As­cot res­i­dent about his de­ci­sion to buy into one of the race­course sub­urb’s new­est apart­ment com­mu­ni­ties.

As­cot House is the first res­i­den­tial precinct within the $1.2 bil­lion Ea­gle Farm mas­ter­plan.
