STOCKLAND’S Vale at Holmview is one of the top hot spots in southeast Queensland for interstate buyers, according to figures from Queensland’s largest residential developer.

Stockland has revealed the top locations for interstate purchases in the 2017 financial year, with Vale at Holmview named third highest in the state.

Mountain Creek on the Sunshine Coast was the most popular location, followed by North Lakes in Brisbane’s north. Stockland Queensland general manager for residential communities Kingsley Andrew said interstate buyers looking for new homes in Queensland were targeting affordable, high-growth
corridors in the state’s southeast.

“As the state’s largest residential developer, we are well placed to identify which regions are most appealing to interstate buyers looking for land, house and land packages, townhomes or completed new homes,” Mr Andrew said.

The Stockland analysis showed New South Wales was the largest source of buyers, representing approximately two-thirds of interstate purchases in Stockland’s southeast Queensland communities. Buyers from Victoria accounted for a further 13 per cent of interstate purchases, followed by South Australia (7 per cent) and
Western Australia (5 per cent). Mr Andrew said interstate buyers included both owner occupiers looking to relocate to Queensland and investors looking for better value for money than they could get in other markets.

“For example, we currently have land available at our Vale at Holmview community in the Logan growth corridor starting at only $190,900 and house and land packages priced from $365,593,” he said.

“It is no surprise that interstate buyers looking for affordable, high-quality new homes and an appealing lifestyle close to all services are turning their attention
to Queensland.”

The latest Stockland Liveability Index revealed residents at Vale at Holmview particularly loved the green open spaces, parks close to homes and overall standard of living within the community, with 91 per cent of respondents saying it was a desirable place to live and 94 per cent saying they felt proud to
bring family and friends home.

The annual survey was conducted between January and March 2017 in partnership with leading research specialists, Colmar Brunton. It measures the
livability of 40 communities nationally, with more than 2500 residents taking part in last year’s survey. The Stockland Liveability Index represents how satisfied
residents are living in a Stockland community while providing key insights for cities.

Vale at Holmview will ultimately comprise around 600 homes and the community’s landmark Valley View Park has an adventure playground with all-ages equipment, barbecue facilities, a kick-about area and an amphitheatre. It is close to shops, public transport and the central business districts of Beenleigh, Logan and Springwood and more than 20 public and private schools.
