Hear from our newest resident Anthony and discover why Haven ended up being the perfect buying opportunity for him. As a first home buyer, Anthony was thrilled to share some of his positive experiences with Stockland's Haven team and what propelled him to purchase his first townhome.

What interested you most about Haven?

Haven's proximity to the city made it a really attractive option, especially combined with its relative affordability and ability to own my own townhome without body corporate fees!

What made you decide to purchase? Especially given in these circumstances (Covid-19) 

Owning my own home is something that I’ve always wanted to do, and luckily the timing of Haven made that seem like a real possibility. Buying during the COVID-19 pandemic may seem a little risky, but having secure employment and extra assistance from the HomeBuilder grant gave me the confidence I needed to go through with the purchase.

Any advice for those who may be looking to purchase at Haven:

It’s really important to think whether or not you’re okay with purchasing off-the-plan. Not only can it be a very long time between signing the contract and moving in, but once the house is done there is little you can do about things you may be unhappy with, unless they are legitimate faults.

Was there anything that we at Stockland could improve on?

Overall I think Stockland has been quite helpful and accommodating throughout this process. Everything went by smoothly, which was helped along by fantastic communication from the sales team, who were quick to respond to all of the questions I had!
