SE­CU­RITY and set­ting up for the fu­ture were the main rea­sons Queens­lan­ders bought prop­erty, a sur­vey has found. The in­de­pen­dent on­line na­tional sur­vey by Mort­gage Choice found 38 per cent of re­cent Queens­land buy­ers said the pri­mary rea­son for buy­ing was to get a foothold in the prop­erty mar­ket and a fur­ther 27 per cent did so to “set my­self/my fam­ily up fi­fi­nan­cially for the fu­ture”. A fur­ther 12 per cent bought prop­erty so they could move in with their part­ner/pro­vide a home for their fu­ture hus­band/ wife. An ocean­front man­sion is top of the wish list for nearly a third of the state’s prop­erty buy­ers. A com­fort­able rural re­treat was their sec­ond pref­er­ence fol­lowed by a cosy coastal hideaway, a com­fort­able sub­ur­ban home on a quar­ter acre block and fi­fi­nally a city pen­t­house with great views.
