Fam­i­lies head to Pim­pama

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

PIM­PAMA is set to con­tinue its reign as one of Queens­land’s top pop­u­la­tion growth hot spots with a build­ing boom un­der­way at Gains­bor­ough Greens and about 200 fam­i­lies mov­ing to the sub­urb over com­ing months.

Re­cent fig­ures from the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics show Pim­pama’s pop­u­la­tion grew by al­most 31 per cent from 2016 to 2017 — the high­est in Queens­land.

This record-break­ing pop­u­la­tion growth, teamed with in­creas­ing res­i­den­tial build­ing ac­tiv­ity, has led to the Hous­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion (HIA) peg­ging Pim­pama as Aus­tralia’s fastest grow­ing hous­ing mar­ket.

On the back of high de­mand, a lim­ited num­ber of sites re­main in Gains­bor­ough Greens’s lat­est stage — the pop­u­lar Wood­land Re­lease in the For­est Green precinct.

Mir­vac Queens­land res­i­den­tial gen­eral man­ager War­wick Bi­ble said the fig­ures were proof of a grow­ing trend to­wards build­ing a new home in­stead of pur­chas­ing an es­tab­lished prop­erty.

Lots at Gains­bor­ough Greens are priced from $262,000 and home and land pack­ages start from $559,299.
