Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS ALEISHA PIDGEON

Pim­pama’s largest new com­mu­nity, Gains­bor­ough Greens, has fi­nalised its 1000th sale, as the area is named Aus­tralia’s top prop­erty “hot-spot” by the na­tion’s peak hous­ing in­dus­try body.

The mas­ter­planned res­i­den­tial project, be­ing de­vel­oped by Mir­vac, in the north­ern Gold Coast, has posted $275 mil­lion in sales since it was of­fi­cially launched In 2011.

It con­tin­ues to hit new sales highs, with more than 150 home­sites, to­talling $41 mil­lion of de­posits taken this year alone, prompt­ing new stages of land to be con­tin­u­ally brought for­ward to meet de­mand.

The mile­stone comes as the Hous­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion names Pim­pama as Aus­tralia’s fastest grow­ing hous­ing mar­ket in it’s Pop­u­la­tion and Res­i­den­tial Build­ing Hotspots 2017 re­port, based on pop­u­la­tion growth and res­i­den­tial build­ing ac­tiv­ity.

Mir­vac Queens­land res­i­den­tial gen­eral man­ager, War­wick Bi­ble, said the high de­mand for prop­erty in Gains­bor­ough Greens was driven by a num­ber of fac­tors.

“Buy­ers can build a brand new home in Gains­bor­ough Greens for less than it would cost to pur­chase an older-style home, which may re­quire ren­o­va­tion, in the cen­tral Gold Coast, just a few min­utes drive south,” he said.

“There are also sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits that come with build­ing a new home, such as the abil­ity to choose the de­sign and lay­out that best suits your life­style, in­clud­ing the lat­est fit­tings and fin­ishes.”

Shane Ste­fanac and Melissa Gil­mour (pic­tured) will move into their new fourbed­room home at Gains­bor­ough Greens later this year, af­ter pur­chas­ing a home­site in the Pim­pama com­mu­nity.

The cou­ple ini­tially had their sights set on buy­ing an ex­ist­ing home, un­til Mr Ste­fanac discovered Gains­bor­ough Greens by ac­ci­dent.

“I came across Gains­bor­ough Greens while go­ing for a ride on my mo­tor­bike and thought it looked like a re­ally nice com­mu­nity.

“I had such a good feel­ing about the area that I went home and spoke to Mel about it and a week later we had pur­chased a block of land to build our dream home,” he said.

“We had been look­ing at ex­ist­ing homes for a while, but had been un­able to find one that fea­tured ev­ery­thing we were look­ing for in our price range.”

The cou­ple de­cided to sell their apart­ment in Big­gera Waters to build their new home at Gains­bor­ough Greens.

“At Gains­bor­ough Greens, Mel was able to de­sign our new home from the ground up, just the way we wanted it.”

Home­sites at Gains­bor­ough Greens are priced from $246,000.
