Beach­side amenity a win­ner

The Courier-Mail - Home - - HOUSE & LAND -

LO­CAL owner oc­cu­piers and first-home buy­ers have se­cured the ma­jor­ity of free­stand­ing house-and-land pack­ages within the 47-lot Sand­cas­tles de­vel­op­ment in Mt Coolum.

Scott Hast­ings from Van­tage Hold­ings Aus­tralia said just a few house-and-land pack­ages re­mained fol­low­ing stun­ning sales re­sults achieved within just six months.

“There is no doubt that the Sun­shine Coast property mar­ket is back on the boil and Sand­cas­tles was a re­flec­tion of our abil­ity to deliver a high­value, high-qual­ity prod­uct in a stun­ning beach­side lo­ca­tion,” Mr Hast­ings said.

“Sand­cas­tles has re­ally res­onated with the lo­cal mar­ket – 75 per cent of our buy­ers are owner oc­cu­piers, of which a stag­ger­ing 73 per cent are from the Sun­shine Coast.

“It’s been some time since owner oc­cu­piers have been so ac­tive in the lo­cal mar­ket, par­tic­u­larly first-home own­ers, who make up 51 per cent of the owner oc­cu­piers in our de­vel­op­ment.

“We had ini­tially an­tic­i­pated a 24-month sales pro­gram, so to sell them within six months is a tremen­dous achieve­ment and a great re­flec­tion of the Ur­ban Collection by Van­tage prod­uct.”

One of the pur­chasers to take ad­van­tage of the $15,000 First Home Own­ers Grant was Cassie Richards and her part­ner, Sean Ren­shaw, who look for­ward to mov­ing into their new three-bed­room home at Sand­cas­tles.

“We just think it’s amaz­ing that we can buy a brand-new three-bed­room home, with lots of space and a good back­yard, so close to the beach for un­der $400,000,” Ms Richards said.

“We both work and we also have two lit­tle chil­dren so we don’t want to spend our spare time clean­ing and main­tain­ing a big house.

“We plan to spend as much time as we can swim­ming and surf­ing at Coolum Beach, so it’s great that we can bring our kids up with this life­style.”

Mr Hast­ings said the re­main­ing house-and-land pack­ages from the Ur­ban Collection by Van­tage were priced from $385,000 and he an­tic­i­pated they would sell very quickly.
