The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - PICK OF THE WEEK - with Nick Dal­ton

IT is ap­par­ent the Aus­tralian dream of own­ing a home on a quar­ter acre block is ex­actly that. But all is not lost. While many peo­ple de­cry the rapid de­vel­op­ment of unit, town­house and apart­ment blocks in Cairns, it is a hard fact of life that a lot of new home buy­ers can only af­ford this type of hous­ing. So de­vel­op­ers are build­ing th­ese styles of ac­com­mo­da­tion to de­mand. While some used to de­scribe the Spring­fi­field Cres­cent area at Manoora as “Leggo land”, most of the clus­ters in this street have ma­tured into pro­vid­ing rea­son­able life­styles for dozens of happy res­i­dents. Most of the latest projects of this sort are very ap­peal­ing, pro­vid­ing rea­son­able liv­ing with­out the disad­van­tages of house own­er­ship.
