SIB­LINGS Sa­man­tha and Chris Fer­ris are among the grow­ing num­ber of peo­ple who put off fly­ing the coop to save for their first homes.

The wait­ing paid off be­cause the pair have snapped up apart­ments in Raw­corp’s new lux­ury de­vel­op­ment, Belle­vue at The Glades.

“Sav­ing for a home de­posit can take years and nei­ther of us wanted to get stuck in the ren­tal trap, which would only have made it harder to save,” Ms Fer­ris said.

“We were lucky enough to be able to stay with mum and dad while we both saved enough to buy our own homes. “We were even luck­ier to dis­cover Belle­vue in time to take ad­van­tage of the $20,000 First Home Own­ers grant.”

Belle­vue at Robina will have 58 apart­ments across two build­ings con­nected at podium level.

Res­i­dents will have ac­cess to a lap pool, gym, sauna and en­ter­tain­ment area.

Ms Fer­ris paid $420,000 for a two-bed­room, two bath­room apart­ment with large bal­cony over­look­ing the golf course. Her older brother quickly fol­lowed in her foot­steps.

“While I can see this will def­i­nitely be a great in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity down the track, I am look­ing for­ward to liv­ing at The Glades,” he said.

Mar­ket­ing Projects SEQ di­rec­tor Kyia An­der­son said its lo­ca­tion, views and floor­plans were at­tract­ing a mix of lo­cal down­siz­ers and first home buy­ers. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start in July.
