Small trend emerges

The Courier-Mail - Home - - HOME -

YOUNG pro­fes­sion­als look­ing to break into the prop­erty mar­ket are buy­ing smaller, low­main­te­nance hous­ing in the north­ern Gold Coast cor­ri­dor.

AVJennings has re­leased two new home­site precincts at its Big Sky residential com­mu­nity, Coomera.

The Taurus and Capella re­leases com­prise 45 blocks rang­ing be­tween 340 sq m and 928 sq m, across a 3.6 ha site.

A num­ber of smaller blocks fea­ture 10m frontages – a first for the com­mu­nity – de­signed for af­ford­able, lowm main­te­nance homes.

AVJennings Queens­land g gen­eral man­ager Rod Chad­wick said the smaller blocks had been re­leased to m meet de­mand from young pr pro­fes­sion­als look­ing to get into th the prop­erty mar­ket.

“We are see­ing a trend emerge with first and sec­ond­home buy­ers seek­ing small-lot homes in sub­ur­ban ar­eas,” he said. “A smaller house can pro­vide all the live­able at­tributes of a larger house yet they are more ef­fi­cient in their use of space and gen­er­ally re­quire min­i­mal main­te­nance.

“With prices start­ing from just $204,900 in the new land re­lease, build­ing a home at Big Sky is very achiev­able and depend­ing on the de­sign of the home, our buy­ers will be able to build a qual­ity new home with a house and land value in the mid $300,000s.”

On com­ple­tion, the com­mu­nity will fea­ture 318 home­sites, set among a pro­posed 8.3ha of open space in­clud­ing bike­ways, walk­ways and park­land.
